Our Management


Melinda Cookson

Managing Director

Melinda spent the first 8 years of her career as an Account Executive in advertising and marketing, where she was responsible for national campaigns for a range of corporate and blue chip clients.

In 1995 Melinda entered the staffing industry as a Business Development Manager for a reputable national staffing company. Five years later and armed with fantastic training and work experience she took a huge leap of faith and started her own Recruitment Agency which saw her operating out of a small office in Westville. From those humble beginnings, Futurelink has grown to where it currently offers a range of value-add services and has a footprint in most of the major regions in South Africa.

Having spent over 20 years in the industry, Melinda says she is as passionate about the industry as she was the day she started. She is driven by a strong desire to exceed her clients' expectations in order to ensure their continued success. She recognizes that this can only be achieved by the great team she has surrounded herself with.
