Hi, I’m Glen Lowes, Managing Director of Start360 Group

Growing up I lived in a small town in the North East of England called Bishop Auckland. As a child, I was always involved in sports and was an avid football fan. I have the heartache of being a Newcastle United supporter. After leaving school, I decided to follow in the footsteps of friends and applied to the local college. I studied for 3 years, gaining a trade, becoming a qualified carpenter. I then continued my studies, completing an ONC which allowed me to be able to supervise building sites.

As we all know the country suffered a massive financial decline and the building trade was hit very hard, leaving thousands, me being one of them, jobless. I tried several different paths which included working as a self-employed joiner, a musician, and an events planner. Unfortunately none of those worked out, however, it did lead me into the fastest growing industry in the world for the last 3 years, Direct Sales.

I started out in January 2011 working for a small company in Newcastle. It was during my time there that I gained all the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to manage my own business. It was only a year later, in January 2012, that I started trading. At Start360 Group we’ve had the privilege of working with several of the UK’s leaders within the Charity Fundraising, Energy, Film & Media, Finance and Telecommunications sectors.

In 2016 we broke the £1M turnover barrier, in 2017 we extended our market reach into two new cities, and in 2019 we have been focussed on developing our energy campaign. Looking ahead to 2020, my primary focus is to expand the Start360 Group brand and extend our market reach throughout the UK.

Hi, I’m Laura Elliott, Recruitment Manager

I grew up in County Durham. I oversee all of the Administration for Start360 Group. I have previously worked in Marketing, Recruitment and Sales. While I enjoyed most of my previous jobs, I felt like my career was at a standstill. I craved a fresh challenge. I was looking for a job where I would be constantly challenged and where I would have the opportunity to learn and progress. 

I applied to Start360 Group because of their rapid growth and big goals as I knew, if successful, this was a company I could grow with.  I am confident that the experience I gain at Start360 Group will help me achieve my long-term goal of running my own recruitment company.

My short-term goals are to help Managing Director, Glen Lowes, expand Start360 Group throughout the UK and also overseas by providing input on all administration and HR Management. As the business grows and my role changes, I hope to gain a greater knowledge of all aspects Business Management in order to better my professional opportunities.

I am excited about the new challenges that will come my way and taking on new responsibilities as the business grows.

Hi, I’m Fatima Balde, Campaign Trainer

I was born and raised in Portugal.  I studied Travel, Tourism and Hospitality for 4 years. I’ve previously worked in Portugal but I couldn’t really build a career in the field I desired so decided to move to the United Kingdom in search of a career path and progression opportunities.

Coming across this industry was never part of my plans, but as soon as I got to know the managers and the team I started to change my perspective. Everyone were -still are- constantly helpful and always giving me all the support I need. The management support and development have helped me me achieve higher standards and a career within the company that I never dreamed of having before, and all within a couple of years.

Moving forward I’m excited to be a part of a growing and expanding company. My goal is to run a training and development company across Europe. We are working with some of the most prestigious clients in the United Kingdom and I hope to use that to propel my goals even further. I can’t wait to see where it will take me next.
