Clients - why engage Marketing Recruitment?                                                                          

Feedback from clients clearly shows that my dual experience from many years in recruitment building strong networks and my prior life in marketing combine to give them relatively superior results. Compared to other recruiters, clients say I gain greater insight to their requirements and provide more accurate assessments of candidates' abilities. 


The result?  Clients receive more empathetic, consultative advice and better calibre shortlists closer to their needs - they recruit better marketers for their business in the most cost effective manner.


Marketing Recruitment's focus is simple...giving clients what they want;

  • A specialist recruitment search consultancy with strong networks and a track record of success over many years...right people, right place, right time.
  • Competitive fees and terms coupled with an experienced recruitment professional who's also an experienced marketer and will get to know your business, your needs, your culture, your team and is willing to establish a long term partnership.
  • A recruitment consultancy that knows the market, is experienced in marketing, has the right networks and will find the right people - those that will add value to your business.  It's about knowing the best talent in the market, not just who's on the market.
  • Efficiency, flexibility and timeliness of response.
  • Confirming every agreement in writing.
  • Giving top priority to each recruitment assignment and maintaining open communication and agreed time-lines.
  • Trustworthiness, professionalism, honesty and ethics.

The process;

Consult closely with the client to understand their business objectives for the role and the team for the short and longer terms.  This includes attention to specialist or general requirements as to skills, personality, experience, competencies, etc.


Importantly, the brief should include a summary from the hiring manager of the key challenges or projects the role will need to meet or address within the next year or two. 

  • Develop target lists from networks to identify candidates in the passive and active markets and, where appropriate, general discussions as to relevance
  • Online advertising to complement search.
  • Detailed discussions and interviews with selected candidates about the opportunity as well as assessment of their career objectives, motivations and competencies.
  • Development of the shortlist and presentation to the client.
  • Arrangement of client/candidate interviews and follow-up assessments.
  • Conducting detailed reference checking of candidates and arranging psychometric testing if required.
