“Mark is a top-tier recruiter. When the time came for me to consider a change of role, Mark made the process incredibly clear and was by my side every step of the way to ensure success. Mark has excellent knowledge of the professional services market and can expertly communicate his strong understanding of the recruitment process. Due to his unparalleled service, I was able to land a dream role incredibly smoothly. I would recommend Mark to anyone.”

Communications Lead

UK Law Firm

“To put it simply Mark gets the job done. Throughout my whole job search process Mark was professional, honest and very helpful. Further to that he understood what I was looking for and what his client was looking for. It’s not often if ever I write recommendations for people but in this instance, it was very much warranted. Therefore I would highly recommend Mark’s services, be it a candidate or employer, thanks, Mark!”

Senior Accountant

US Law Firm

“I have worked with Mark for a number of years, the main reason being that he attracts very good candidates. He knows exactly what I am looking for when recruiting so I normally only have to see a few people and one of them will be perfect. Mark is also very responsive when I need him to be and never pushy which is very much appreciated. Highly recommended.”

Recruitment Manager

US Law Firm

“It was such a pleasure working with Mark. I found him to be very personable, professional and proactive. When so many recruiters now are happy to promote you for a role without ever meeting, Mark ensured that we met and discussed what I wanted from a career change and if the role was suitable. He offered great guidance on the role and was always on hand to discuss anything. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone.”
