Testimonials

We've helped many wonderful companies and candidates over the years. Here's what our client's say about us:

"

It’s clear that they were looking for the right person, not just the right skills. I sent my CV in response to a post on LinkedIn and they rang me straight away, following up with a Teams meeting to get to know me. They really listened to me – it didn’t feel at all like the checklist-based process it normally does with recruitment firms, which was unusual. It was very

..."
Helen Grover, HR Engagement Director – Warwick University
"

Mallory Partners initially contacted me via LinkedIn. I’d started a consultancy, it was going well and I had decided not to pursue any employment opportunities but Martin completely sold the role to me in one short phone call – there is no other way of putting it! He was open, honest and, by the time he asked me if the role was of interest, do you know what? Yes it

..."
Matt Parkinson, Managing Director – DreamDoors
"

I had been aware of Mallory Partners for a little while, as they approached me when they were recruiting for an MD in a previous business I was involved with. I elected not to throw my hat into the ring on that occasion but, 18 months later, Martin contacted me again regarding Countrywide Grounds Maintenance and the time was right to consider a move. “Predominantly, this was a telephone-based process

Tony Cammiss, Managing Director – Countrywide Grounds Maintenance
"

Martin got in touch with me via LinkedIn. Although I wasn’t actively looking, his approach accelerated my thinking. The impression I got from Martin and Mallory Partners, straightaway, was that they had strong relationships and a good understanding of PE backed businesses – particularly with Node4 – and these were clearly built over a long time. Despite the relative uniqueness of my role, they clearly understood what kind of experience

..."
Mark Cox, Business Development Director – Node4
"

I was initially approached by member of the Mallory Partners team via LinkedIn. I was looking at the time and so was regularly approached by consultants, however this role and approach seemed a good fit. I spoke mostly to Martin and he had already been in touch with an ex-colleague of mine, so already had third-party insight into what I did and whether he could feel confident in putting me

..."
Jonathan Kay, CFO – Node4
"

Martin and Jeremy are clearly very experienced. They are very different personalities, but they work well together. Along with Samantha, they provided us with a robust challenge that really made us think and helped to hone down exactly what we were looking for. They were also very good at picking up on what we needed and adjusting to how we wanted the process to unfold – which is exactly what

..."
Dr Bilal Mohammed, Director of People and Operations – UA92
"

I like working with both Martin and Jeremy, they’re honest and authentic and they have good judgement about people. The hire they managed for us is working out really, well which is evidence of that – and we’re working with them on other roles now too. The interview process was all virtual, which worked very well and it’s certainly something we will continue to use in the future. They were

Sian Jones, CEO – Correla
"

This was my first experience of Mallory Partners. I was approached by Chris, via LinkedIn, which is not unusual in itself – but I really appreciated the way the approach was done. I wasn’t actually looking to move at the time and so, while I was curious, I was not particularly keen. However, Chris got me to reconsider the opportunity and it turns out to be the one that I

..."
Randall Cliff, Client Director – TiG Data Intelligence
"

This was not my first experience with Mallory Partners as they placed me in my previous role. In 2017, after many years with BT, I’d been called by another head hunter for a role which, ultimately, I didn’t get – but it made me think about moving on. A good friend suggested Mallory Partners and so I registered with them and with other firms too. Of all those I registered

..."
Mark Naylor, CFO – Correla
"

All in all it has been a fantastic experience. Having found me on LinkedIn, my first contact with Mallory Partners was when Nick called me for a brief, initial chat. This was followed up the same day by Chris, who talked to me about the particular opportunity. They were both really personable – chatty, friendly, but professional. The whole process was very quick from there and, throughout, both Nick and

..."
Seema Maru, Client Manager – TiG Data Intelligence
"

This was the first time I had worked with Mallory Partners. I applied for the role through LinkedIn and, even in my first conversation with Nick, it was clear that he had not only sought to get under the skin of my CV, to understand my capabilities, but that he also really knew the role and that I could be a great fit for this private equity firm. From that

..."
Anonymous CFO – Cyber Security Business
"

Working with Mallory Partners was a really good experience. They took the time to understand the specific attributes we were looking for and the particular dynamics of our business. Ours is a very entrepreneurial environment, led by our founder and a close knit management team so it is really important that the chemistry is right when anyone new joins the team. We don’t traditionally use head hunters, because you don’t

Leon Keller, Chief Financial Officer – Node4
"

I rate Mallory Partners very highly, they are very experienced in the private equity market and I like the way they operate. I was aware of them in the marketplace, but first dealt with them in December 2018 when Jeremy approached me about a role. I found him receptive, professional and personable – but also genuinely interested in making sure the role he put me forward for was the right

..."
Investment Manager – London Private Equity
"

I spoke to Chris and John after spotting a role Mallory Partners were advertising on LinkedIn. We arranged a call and, in fact, that first conversation absolutely epitomises the way that Mallory Partners works. They were very easy to chat to, they were open and transparent about the role and the nuances of the employer. They were also genuinely interested in hearing about my experience. In fact throughout, they were

Ian Thomas, Group Operations Director – Node4
"

To be honest, Mallory Partners were absolutely brilliant and the whole process was very positive. I responded to an advert on an executive website and spoke firstly to Martin and then, in more detail, to both Jeremy and Martin. They went through my CV, talked through the nature of the role and we discussed my aspirations and private equity experience. Ahead of my first meeting, they provided me with a

Manprit Randhawa, Chief Financial Officer – Juniper Education
"

I applied via LinkedIn and was quite surprised when I had a call within 24 hours. That’s not typical of recruiters. I actually ended up taking a different role to the one I applied for, with the same firm – and it was Jeremy who guided me towards it, as it was much more suited to me; Jeremy had taken the time to get to know me and find out

Sarah Cramer, Chief Financial Officer – Whiteleaf Furniture Ltd
"

Mallory Partners are a breath of fresh air. John first approached me in January or February 2019. The role was absolutely ideal but, unfortunately, for personal reasons I couldn’t make the geography work. Some six months later, he approached me again with another role which was absolutely ideal. The fact that he kept me in mind and remembered exactly what I was looking for was really impressive. He communicated really

..."
Paul Ceaser, Chief Technology Officer – Gradwell Communications
"

I have been both a client and candidate of Mallory Partners so have been on both sides of the fence. I met Jeremy in 2010 when he placed me as CFO in a Sovereign Capital-backed business. Jeremy was only just starting up Mallory Partners at the time and was building a network using his private equity contacts in small and medium tier firms. He contacted me and I liked him.

David Hogg, Chief Financial Officer – Cannaray
"

Mallory Partners support us with our C-suite resourcing needs across new investments and our existing portfolio companies, so we speak regularly. We always have in mind a particular type of individual, skills and experience profile for each investment situation. Mallory Partners combine a strong understanding of SMEs with the needs of private equity investors extremely well. They appreciate that many of the SMEs that we invest in typically don’t have

..."
Tom Phipps, Partner – Chiltern Capital
"

Mallory Partners placed me in my current job and, having experienced being a candidate with them, I’m now using them to recruit for key roles in the business. When they approached me about the role, I dealt mostly with Jeremy and he was very professional from the outset. He’s clearly used to dealing with senior people and operates to very high quality standards. Mallory Partners are very well connected in

Gareth Jones, Finance Manager – Cannaray
"

I’ve known Chris for some time. We’ve kept in touch over the years and I’ve introduced him into other businesses I’ve been involved with, in the Private Equity space. Chris introduced me to Rosslyn Data, who were looking for an interim Chief Revenue Generation Officer to help them figure out their future market strategy. Chris was very useful in terms of briefing me ahead of the meetings and giving me

Mark Williams, Interim Chief Revenue Generation Officer – Rosslyn Data Technologies
"

This was my first time working with Mallory Partners and, from the outset, their responsiveness was quite striking. They were very quick and efficient throughout and I liked that. Given the timeframe and logistics, it didn’t make sense for Martin and I to get together and so we did a Skype call which was really great. As a candidate, you often feel, that you aren’t important in the process, particularly

..."
Karen Morris–Lanz, Interim Shared Services Director – University Of Warwick
"

This was my first experience of working with Mallory Partners and it was a very quick process, concluded within three weeks – as Redeem Group needed a new Group Financial Controller on board as soon as possible, to support the business following a refinancing. As a consequence, my contact with Martin was restricted to emails, calls and the occasional video conference. However, this didn’t make the process any less successful;

David McAvoy, Group Financial Controller – Redeem
"

This was my first experience of working with Mallory Partners and they were like no other recruitment agency I’ve worked with. They were very responsive, both immediately and throughout the process – and they clearly have significant expertise in looking beyond simply what’s written on the CV to identify the precise capabilities that their clients are seeking. Often it’s a bit of a numbers game with recruiters; if the CV

Paul Mahoney, Finance Director – Gradwell Communcations
"

I wasn’t actually looking for a job, but this role ticked all the boxes. The whole process happened very quickly and, due to the locations involved, it was all handled by phone and email – which I don’t think is typical of the way they work. However, I felt well supported and briefed throughout and I don’t think Martin could have done any more than he did. He negotiated very
