Senior Marketing Recruitment & Executive Search

Over the past decade recruiting for marketing, communications and PR talent across the region, our senior search specialists have nurtured and developed deep networks and close relationships with marketing and communications leadership teams across the UK.

Through our niche educational and networking events, and dedicated industry salary reviews and market reports, we’ve not only firmly established ourselves at the forefront of senior recruitment in the marketing, communications and PR sector. But also built a fantastic and unrivalled pool of connections within industries such as FMCG, software, manufacturing, retail, e-commerce, charity, construction, not for profit, agency, and many more.

We recognise that reputation is built on results combined with customer service, and always go above and beyond to ensure that our clients are happy and satisfied with every campaign we complete. In recognition of this we’ve won multiple awards for our creative yet professional search methods, and have been successful in placing many senior and executive staff across a number of leading firms and brands across the country.
