Charlotte Mollart, recruitment account manager for Crossrail at Morson Group, has won this year’s keenly contested Recruiter and HR Person or Team of the Year Award.
‘I’d like to thank the whole team. MI42 we call it. It’s a tough challenge encouraging clients to take more people onto the railway industry.’
Charlotte Mollart has certainly answered that challenge at work on Great Western Electrification and Crossrail in her four years at Morson – or MI42 as her colleagues call Morson Group.
Says Gary Smithson, associate director of Morson Group, ‘Charlotte has worked at Morson since 2011. She started as a resourcer and has quickly progressed to the recruitment account manager for Crossrail.
‘She works tirelessly to support her client. She has an ability to understand their needs and translate this into the relevant numbers of contractors for project after project. She has been described by the client as a ‘superstar’. She has combined the necessary attributes of a good recruiter, a good HR man manager to ensure success for her client and a great working environment for her workers.’
‘The contractors that she has hired love to see her on site, as she is very good about making sure their individual issues are always resolved promptly,’ says a Crossrail colleague.
Says Aaron Gallavan, ‘Charlotte and the Morson team have made an outstanding contribution to the Crossrail, electrification and Great Western Route Modernisation programmes. She and the team work tirelessly in finding competent and quality staff in a market where the demand for experienced people is already saturated.
‘They have literally covered the globe in bringing staff to the programme from all corners including Delhi and Australia. The programmes have already achieved so many milestones which wouldn’t have been possible without the support and dedication Charlotte and the Morson team have given to us. There are many more challenges ahead for which the team have already embraced the challenge and are continually looking to better the standards for lower costs. A fantastic company and an outstanding member of the team.’
‘Charlotte is an invaluable member of our team,’ says Gary Smithson. ‘I can always rely on her and have full confidence in the way she runs this account. Her work with Crossrail and similar projects has made a real difference. Her work ethic has challenged us all to be better and created a more personal interaction with both the clients and candidates.’
Happily for the rail industry and its construction partners in London, the spectre of unfilled job vacancies on Crossrail is kept at bay by Charlotte ‘M’ Mollart and the teams at MI42…
The Recruiter/HR Person of the Year Award was this year sponsored by Stobart Rail – one of the leading names in rail network maintenance and enhancement. The award was presented by Stobart Rail’s business development manager, Andrew Sumner.
He said, ‘I think the individuals make the rail industry.
’It’s vital that we recognise the people, the personalities, the hard work the individuals put into the rail industry.’
