Having worked with Mark for the past year, I can honestly say it was an absolute pleasure having him on our team as he was instrumental in alleviating a number of our key challenges within H&B. With huge targets set by the business we needed a partner that would come in and hit the ground running which is exactly what Mark did for us. Mark demonstrated a clear understanding on how to source professionals whom held the ideal skillsets whilst also ensuring these candidates embodied what our brand was all about. If you’re a client or candidate seeking a new challenge then look no further as I would have no hesitation recommending Mark to aid in your search.

I’d highly recommend working with Mark to find Product candidates, Mark will deliver against your needs every time. This isn’t just about finding candidates for a role but Mark also helped me to construct roles and profiles based on our general desires and needs to ensure that our roles were fit for the market and targeted for ensuring success. Mark and his team are highly engaged and embedded (they came to our show and tells, read our comms and give us product feedback) and they completely understand how to find people with correct skillset for the role, whilst also ensuring purpose, culture and value compatibility. Every time that I worked with Mark on a hiring assignment, I knew that I’d have a difficult decision further down the line to choose the right candidate given the quality of candidates that they’d bring in!
