Aleem Javaid, Group Consolidation and Audit Manager – Learnlight UK Ltd
"I first came across Mallory Partners six or seven years ago, when I met with Jeremy to talk about a couple of contract roles. They stayed in touch throughout the intervening years and, when the time was right for me to move on, I contacted Jeremy to tell him I was on the market, but that I had a pretty specific set of requirements. His colleague Ed reached out to me soon afterwards and said they had something – it was a role that ticked all of my boxes and, having talked it through with them, the cultural fit was right too. After I was offered the role, they stayed in touch regularly through the whole onboarding process. Indeed, I’ve only been in the role for two weeks and they've already checked in to see how I am settling in.
Jeremy is one of only a handful of people I would proactively reach out to. He knows me, my experience, and my skills - and I have the confidence that he has my best interests at heart and won't put me forward for something that isn't right for me. That is very unusual in a recruiter. As both a candidate and a client, I feel like I've got a personal relationship with Mallory Partners - much more than the transactional one that you would normally have with an executive search firm. When I am recruiting, I will always reach out to them, even if it's for a role that's not directly in their area of specialism, because I know they'll tell me straight if it's not something they can handle. And I always refer them to other people; my experience has been so incredibly positive every time, even when it’s been for a role where I have not been successful."
