We've helped many wonderful companies and candidates over the years. Here's what our clients say about us:
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..."
Aleem Javaid, Group Consolidation and Audit Manager – Learnlight UK Ltd
I first spoke to Mallory Partners in June 2021. I had a very idiosyncratic set of requirements as I was looking for a Chief Financial Officer role, in a private equity-backed, medical/pharma ‘contract manufacturing’ space, and I spotted an opportunity on LinkedIn which captured everything I was seeking. I spoke with Martin and met with Ed before they introduced me to Chiltern Capital. The process was mostly virtual, as we..."
James Layland, Chief Financial Officer – Surepharm
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..."
Ajay Teli, Chief Communications & Marketing Officer – University of Warwick
My brother recommended Mallory Partners as he has used them for many years. They were completely honest, from the outset, that they had no prior experience in the architectural sector. However, they were extremely good at listening and working out how they could use their skills and network to help me find the right person. I wanted a particular kind of candidate, with a particular set of experiences – somebody..."
Michael Sparks, Owner & Founder – Michael Sparks Associates
I approached Mallory Partners via LinkedIn regarding the CITO role at Warwick University. “After a quick call to establish the basics, and email follow up, I had an initial meeting with John and Martin. They were professional, friendly, and open – and considering it was via Teams it felt very relaxed. However, what really struck me was the thoroughness of their questions. I found the meeting challenging and helpful in..."
Raja Javaid, CITO – University of Warwick
I was originally approached via LinkedIn for the Chief Operating Officer’s role. I spoke to both Martin and Ed and had a really good feeling from them straightaway; I always think you can tell a lot about a recruitment firm by the calibre of the questions they ask you, it’s a good indication of their effectiveness and their understanding of their clients. “What I also liked was that they were..."
Justin Gilbert, Managing Director – Dreamdoors UK
I contacted Mallory Partners via LinkedIn when I saw the role and had an initial call with John. He helped to contextualise the role for me and we explored what the University were looking for which, together with a very high-end brochure, was extremely helpful. I was in the US at the time and they were very flexible in making arrangements for the first interview, which was with both John..."
Chris Hunt, Commercial Director – University Of Warwick
Mallory Partners approached me on a recommendation from my previous CEO. Initially, I wasn’t sure if it would progress, as I did not have experience of leading a private equity transaction that the employer wanted – but Mallory Partners worked hard with them to explore what they were seeking to achieve, how my experience might prove valuable and kept the conversation going. Ultimately, It was a very straightforward process. I..."
Kelly Simkiss, CEO – Pixel Group
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..."
