It was truly refreshing to work with Marshall Douglas Search- the consultants I dealt with were genuine, informative and helpful; working to coach and assist me throughout the entire interview process, rather than pushing me into jobs I was uninterested in. Not once did they act in the “salesy” and aggressive manner to which I have sadly become accustomed with more generalist recruitment consultants. They identified the specific type of job I was looking for and then worked overtime to help me secure the role. I strongly recommend the service.Strategic Development Manager
I was really struggling to find senior level change management jobs after being made redundant last year and feel very glad that I made contact with Marshall Douglas. I had become increasingly concerned that economic turbulence, combined with a high abundance of job-seekers, was rendering my search almost impossible. The consultants at Marshall Douglas were highly sympathetic and used an evidently wide network of contacts to find me three potential positions. It was great to have choice for the first time in a long time and I will not hesitate to recommend them to friends and associates going forward.BusinessTransformation Director
Marshall Douglas was the first search firm I have dealt with during my search which worked proactively to market my details to a wide audience. They tailor-made my search according to my specifications, calling me on a weekly basis to update me on their progress, and provided me with a wider scope of companies to look at as a result. I will definitely use them again in future as a candidate and as a recruiting manager.Operational Strategy Manager, FTSE 100 Retail Company
In truth, I wasn’t actively looking when I was headhunted for a specific market opportunity by Marshall Douglas Search. I was however, initially interested in the informative details provided and the consultative, transparent approach which piqued my interest further. Having met the client on three occasions whilst being coached by the team at Marshall Douglas along the way, I was made a compelling offer. Looking back now six months on, it was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made. Based on the service I received I plan to use Marshall Douglas Search for my own hiring needs in the near future.Corporate Communications Director

We had been working with our usual suppliers to fill a very specialist role in our corporate development function and had become increasingly concerned about the calibre of the candidates we were meeting. We therefore opted to embark on a retained search model and used Marshall Douglas to fill the role, following a recommendation. The consultants at Marshall Douglas conducted a detailed market mapping and search exercise which allowed us to identify the best candidates in the marketplace, conducted rigorous interviews on our behalf and then shortlisted the best five candidates to put in front of the line manager. We were delighted with the outcome and will use Marshall Douglas for senior level search in the future.HR Director, Mobile Telecommunications Company
Marshall Douglas worked closely with the Supply Chain Strategy Director and I during a recent search for analysts in our Supply Chain Strategy team. We really needed candidates with sector experience to keep up with our team and they needed to be comfortable working in a pretty high-octane environment. The consultants at Marshall Douglas took a detailed brief and acted virtually as an extension of our company when looking for the successful applicants. We were really impressed with the people they came up with- the perfect cultural fit!Supply Chain Strategy Manager
We are in the process of building a new Strategy and Business Development team and have used Marshall Douglas to help us recruit externally.
