Margaret helped us to identify exceptional Search Marketing candidates, through an in-depth understanding of our requirements and a total commitment to helping us find the very best people. Great to work with!

Ed Schofield Head of Digital/Ecommerce, Expedia, 

Margaret has helped me fill four positions in the past six months serving as my recruiter in London. I don't exactly know how she did it, but she sourced and screened relevant candidates, kept the entire process tightly organized, was flexible when plans changed, kept up with me and reengaged in a timely manner when they changed back. Did I mention that she closed four for four. I couldn't be happier.

Joe Grabow Director, High Value Customer Programs, Expedia, LinkedIn profile

I strongly recommend Margaret. She has recruited many persons in my team in the past years, always meeting the defined objectives, and really taking care of the candidates.
