Ajay Teli, Chief Communications & Marketing Officer – University of Warwick
"When Mallory Partners approached me, it was a bit of a bolt from the blue. I was looking, but not intensively and, while I would normally have been drawn more towards corporate opportunities, having had an initial conversation with John I was really attracted by the variety of this role and could see there were synergies. He sold it extremely well. My second meeting was more in-depth; looking at the role, my experience and what value I could add, in more detail. At each stage, John gave as much information as I could possibly have wanted. He briefed me ahead of the interviews on the expectations of the panel and what they were looking for. Unlike other firms I have dealt with, the whole process was effortless. John was also very accessible; we communicated a lot by WhatsApp which was really useful and convenient. The Mallory Partners team never came across as pushy head-hunters; they came across as grown-up professionals, investing an awful lot of time in understanding my needs and whether this role would be a good fit for me, a bit like matchmakers but for jobs."
