Senior Electrical Engineer for Central Plant Areas


Natalie Guyan


Natalie set up Guyan & Associates in 2007, alongside husband, James, after recognising a need in the market to best serve both the client and candidate, working on a quality basis. She has played an integral part in the organic growth of the business and passionately eats, sleeps and breathes it.

As a mum to two young girls, she fully appreciates the desire for work/life balance and initially took a back-office position. As her girls grew, so did her role and she has since built up a north-west desk from scratch, and is now responsible for all M&E contracting recruitment across Manchester, Liverpool, Yorkshire and the Humber. Not one to shrink from a challenge, she also oversees all of the finance, training, marketing and website.

Natalie brings more than 13 years’ experience of successfully recruiting within M&E, Building Services from the midlands up. Her corporate background allows her to relate to the needs of market-leading blue chip companies and as a business owner, she values the importance of due diligence, commercial acumen and flexibility.

To unwind, Natalie likes to power lift and is proud of the fact she could easily deadlift her husband! A massive fan of assault courses, this year she’ll take on Ring of Fire, Artic Enema and Electroshock Therapy on the 26-obstacle, Tough Mudder. Her girls are her main motivation in life and she’s determined to share her passion for travel with them, by showing them the world and teaching them it’s their oyster. 

Where: Natalie looks after roles in the north west, Yorkshire (as far north as the Scottish border), down to the Stoke, Derby and Nottingham area.
