About us

We are The Marketing Recruitment Group.  We are focussed solely on marketing recruitment – it’s all we do and it’s who we are.

“We started the company with the sole intention of creating a simple and effective recruitment service that we would like to use ourselves; one that creates great futures for our candidates and the employers we work with.  But we wanted it to be values led, with personality and soul too.”

We have an unrivalled combination of experience and contact networks.  We also have access to the latest software and technology. However, relationship building is the true key to our success .  We benefit from the freedoms larger corporate recruiters don’t enjoy and as a result, deliver a service that is genuinely consultative, hassle-free and unbiased.  Above all it’s a service that people want to use.

We have a proven track record of success in marketing recruitment, we really do understand the needs of both candidates and clients in the Midlands and surrounding areas.  Recruiting is one of the most stressful and important parts of any business.  Through an approach that allows us to really get to know our clients and candidates properly, we introduce the right talent to the employer.  But we do it in a simple, effective and professional way.  After all recruitment doesn’t need bells and whistles, but it does need to be done properly.

Our Approach

We don’t claim to do anything different, we simply want to do it better.

“Whether you are a candidate looking to advance your career or a client seeking the best marketing talent around,  we’ll treat you in exactly the same way.”

Formality is not what we do but this doesn’t mean we are not totally professional; it simply means that when you meet with us we’d prefer do it in a relaxed and conversational way. As a candidate at your first meeting we’ll have an informal chat over a coffee, a mutual ‘getting to know you’ before concentrating on the serious business of finding you the next position.  As a client our aim is to understand your business as well as you, to ensure you recruit the right person.

You need confidence that we fully understand you, your aspirations, attitudes and concerns.  Only once we have all of this information to hand can we introduce talented marketing professionals into exciting opportunities with brilliant brands and employers.   We make no apologies for being thorough and taking our time to do a well-informed job.  It’s one of the reasons we have been so successful in our careers to date.

Above everything we are passionate about recruitment and marketing. Everyone who works for us must have had experience of either recruitment or marketing before they can join our team.  It means that you can trust us with you chosen career or business.

Words on a CV will only get you so far.  If you are looking for a thought provoking recruitment business specialising in marketing appointments, that dedicates the right amount of time towards each assignment and candidate, individualises each approach, then there really is only one choice.

Our Team

Jo Faria

I originally came from a background in professional services, specialising in HR, I joined the recruitment industry through some great people that I met and formed lasting relationships with. Originally working as a temps consultant, I eventually moved on to become a permanent consultant, manager and then regional manager.  I have been lucky to work with great people and teams which has in turn resulted in many awards regionally and nationally. I have recruited through just about every sector you can think of and many many types of skill sets too – this includes marketers and accountants.

I love marketing recruitment because: Marketing for me offers a chance to meet a huge diverse range of candidates and clients – with equally diverse skills sets and needs.

I have a creative background, which is how my career began. I soon found that I was enjoying the sales side of my role more and more. I knew that I wanted to marry the creative with the sales aspect and decided to go into marketing recruitment. Throughout the past 3 years I have dedicated my career to getting to know the ins and outs of marketing, digital and communications. During this period I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know marketers, understanding their strengths and placing them in roles that allow them to progress and achieve.

I love marketing recruitment because: Because I love hearing about creative, engaging marketing where marketers reach out to their audience in so many various platforms, I find it so exciting and it’s possibilities endless!
Guilty pleasure: Feeding people up oh and a tiny bit of reality TV
