Marketing Recruitment - Points of Difference

There are plenty of recruiters saying they specialise in marketing recruitment but most are "generalists" and don't have a background as "real world" marketers.


Marketing Recruitment is owned and operated by Philip Brown.  His main point of difference is the unique advantage of having substantial 'real world' marketing experience before making the change to specialist marketing recruitment consulting years ago.


This dual experience enables more accurate assessments of candidates' marketing abilities as well as greater understanding of clients' requirements.


For clients and candidates, a few important points worth noting...

1. Success

Most of Marketing Recruitment's projects are the result of repeat business and word of mouth.  Relative to most competitors, this is a small, specialiist boutique service with a very high success rate. 

This success is due  to several  factors; solid experience as a marketer as well years of experience in recruitment, extensive candidate  networks, care, speed to action,  and the ability to really comprehend clients' needs and deliver "on brief".

2. Networks

Marketing Recruitment has built extensive candidate networks across a range of industries  over many years. This enables faster and more efficient sourcing of candidates who potentially would be an excellent fit with client briefs.  Clients need a recruitment consultant who knows how to access the best talent in the market, not just on the market.



3. Marketing knowledge

Having been a practising marketer for many years prior to recruitment, you'll be working with someone who has extensive first hand marketing knowledge across various industries.  This experience produces more accurate understanding of clients' briefs (beyond standard job descriptions) as well as more effective assessments of candidates' abilities as marketers.  Producing shortlists of greater relevance and calibre saves clients time and money.

4. Care, communication, courtesy and ethics

A high standard of client and candidate care requires a strong service orientation.  For the last few years 80 per cent of Marketing Recruitment's assignments have come from clients who were once candidates.  Care includes taking the time to listen and providing honest and courteous communication as well as operating with a high standard of ethics through all aspects of the recruitment process.

5. Flexibility, speed to market and efficiency

Being geared to respond to clients' briefs immediately, Marketing Recruitment has the flexibility to move quickly and be more efficient and effective.  (In medium to large recruitment firms it is often a numbers game - consultants are usually required to constantly maximise their assignment numbers at any one time rather than ensuring they apply maximum focus on the current singular client.)
