We've helped many wonderful companies and candidates over the years. Here's what our client's say about us:
I hadn’t heard of Mallory Partners before they placed me in my current position. I’ve always instinctively leaned towards the larger recruitment firms but, when you’re looking for a particular role type that’s what you search for, and their name came up against this particular one. From the word go they were very responsive. Martin was always accessible and provided me with one of the most detailed specifications I’ve ever..."
This was my first experience of Mallory Partners. I’d spoken with them a few times in recent years, but either the role or the timing was not right. But this one was. I liked that they listened to my career and what my priorities were. They shared not only details of the role, but what the university really wanted, the people, values and culture. They were up front about the..."
I’ve been with my current business for nine years and it’s been a highly successful period in a market that hasn’t seen much growth. As a consequence I’ve been approached by head-hunters pretty regularly, on behalf of competitors, but none of them were of interest until Chris called. The fit was great with my experience and Gradwell sounded exactly what I was looking for in a next move. Looking back,..."
Mallory Partners is the most proactive and engaged recruitment agency I’ve worked with. I responded to an advert they’d posted on LinkedIn and, within a week, Martin had followed up with me and arranged an initial interview. He gave me really useful feedback about how I positioned myself, not just in the context of this particular opportunity, but more generally too – which I found valuable. It continued to be..."
The first five to ten seconds of any initial call are so important. I don’t know what it was that caught my interest about the call from Martin. It was probably the personal touch – which was really good. He knew quite a bit about me, which was a surprise. They’d obviously done their homework and made me feel like I was the only candidate, which felt good. I didn’t..."
“Having had an extremely positive previous experience with Mallory Partners as a candidate, they were my first choice when I need to recruit two senior directors for Bureau Veritas. As a candidate I found them to be responsive, professional and genuinely interested in me as a candidate – they kept me informed throughout and I never once had to chase them, which was a real differentiator to other executive search..."
“When we needed to recruit a Chief Technology Officer, we were recommended to Mallory Partners by someone else in private equity who’d used them previously. What immediately struck me was the level of dialogue and responsiveness. They made themselves available whenever we needed them and, no matter how tricky we could be as a client at times, they got straight on with things and kept us informed. I also liked..."
“Crossword Cybersecurity have been growing rapidly and in February 2018 we took the decision to increase our Sales team by four. We set ourselves the challenge of having all four start on the same day in early April. Finding four great Business Development Managers with the right experience, in such a short period of time meant that we needed to turn to specialist recruiters and our first call was to..."
“Chris Jennings, Head of the IT & Technology practice at Mallory Partners placed me into my new role as Sales & Marketing Director at The Bunker, part of Cyberfort Group, and has subsequently assisted me in restructuring my team. Having decided to take a step out of permanent roles early last year, I’d just started my second interim contract when Chris approached me about a possible full time role. I..."
“Having worked in private equity for a number of years, at board level, I found myself in the common position, post-acquisition by a larger corporate, where I no longer had the level of authority and decision-making capability that I was used to. Open discussions were had about the fact that I wanted to move on and, around this time, Chris made contact with me in respect of a couple of..."
“I’d used a number of agencies prior to Mallory Partners. They reached out to me on a couple of occasions, including for the interim role I am now in. It was a typically quick process, as interim recruitment tends to be. Organisations who need an interim need the right person in fast, so the interview process is truncated and is more about you as an individual – the agency checks..."
“I was urged to call Mallory Partners by a trusted former colleague when the University decided to look for an Innovation Director. At the time we had already gone to market for a Commercial Director too. At the first meeting I was struck by how intently Martin and Jeremy listened and the perceptive nature of their questions. By this point, we’d had some initial interviews for the Commercial Director role..."
“Both Martin and Jeremy are hugely personable and easy to work with. They worked in a collegiate and supportive way to understand us as an organisation and how to articulate what we were looking for – honing the brief for both roles to ensure we attracted the right candidates. They proposed a process to us and were flexible in adapting to the way we worked and meeting our timeframes. I..."
“I’ve known Martin and Jeremy for many years. They have contacted me before but I’ve never been available. However they approached me about an interim CFO role in a private equity-backed business and the timing was absolutely right. It was the first of three placements I’ve accepted through Mallory Partners, in succession. “For the first role, I had a good brief from Martin and met the client initially on a..."
“I saw the role on GAAPweb and contacted Mallory Partners directly although, in the end, after talking through my skillset and experience with them it was actually another role that turned out to be the best fit for me. Although there was subsequently a change of staff during the process, which led to a bit of a delay, they were good to work with and Martin was both honest and..."
As a candidate: “I was contacted Mallory Partners directly from a recommendation. I found them to be open, honest and straightforward to work with. They took a genuine interest in me as a candidate, more so than other agencies, and the nature of the role was made very clear. The interview process went very smoothly and they were always accessible, preparing me for the interviews in detail and maintaining contact..."
Mallory Partners were engaged by the university to manage their search process. I found them to be professional, committed and genuinely knowledgeable about both the organisation and the role. They were clear about the needs of the university and how my experience and aspirations matched the needs of their client. However, what really stood out for me was their honesty and their excellent communication skillsThey managed my expectations extremely well;..."
When Chris first contacted me about the role of European Sales Lead for HyperGrid, I was careful to not get excited too soon. HyperGrid is a start-up based in San Jose, California, providing a cloud management platform. While start-ups are exciting, they naturally come with greater risk – so I did extensive due diligence on them, both on the phone and in person. Throughout this time I appreciated Chris’s constant..."
On my first meeting with Mallory they took time to understand what I was looking for as well as interviewing me and afterwards gave me useful feedback. Sometime later a suitable role came up and they had understood my experience, strengths and desires well to match me with the opportunity (which I have not found common). After I started they kept in touch with me and the employer giving me..."
Martin was instrumental in securing an interim role for me; what immediately struck me about Martin was his professional, down-to-earth manner. Martin actively listens, provides intelligent feedback and is not afraid to challenge. In addition, Martin is very diligent in keeping in touch. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin to businesses and candidate alike...."
Martin was the headhunter working on the role I fulfilled on an Interim basis at Tarmac. He is a true professional, working very hard to ensure that a balance is maintained between the needs and expectations of his client and those of the candidate (me). He took a great deal of care in making sure that he understood the person behind the CV and that I was able to present..."
Martin placed me into the interim Group FC role at Triumph Motorcycles. I was impressed with Martin’s knowledge of the client and the market place, and his pro-active approach to ensuring the role got off to a good start. Throughout the assignment Martin was the consummate professional, whilst being very personable too. Highly recommended...."
I have worked with a number of recruitment firms over the years, both as a candidate and a recruiter, but my experience with Mallory Partners was the most focused, responsive and professional yet. If you are looking for a well managed placement from start to finish, look no further...."
I worked with Martin in 2013 and was very impressed with his professional approach to recruitment. I felt that the interview technique and questioning was extremely comprehensive and resulted in providing exceptional quality of candidates. He followed the process very carefully and gave some excellent advice throughout. I would highly recommend Martin as a recruitment partner for your organisation, especially for senior roles...."
