I have never had such a good and constructive conversation with a recruitment agency before. Monne went into such depth about my skills & experience, and to get a feel for the personality fit with their client; not to mention taking time to give me advice. I learned quite a bit in our communications so far and am grateful for it.

“Recruiters often get a bad rep for a variety of reasons. MAD Staff goes against that in every single way. You will struggle to find harder working, more dedicated recruiters who know the industry, clients and roles inside out…”

Head of Business Development
James worked hard to find me a new role. He went above and beyond the call of duty on more than one occasion, when I needed advice, reassuring me, and smoothing a potentially bumpy transition. I cannot recommend James highly enough, nothing I asked of him was ever too much. Thank you
Alistair Galloway
Account Manager
James was extremely proactive in helping me to find a new role. He kept me in the loop regularly; I didn't have to keep on chasing him – which was a refreshing change! He was even happy to talk at weekends, which I found very helpful, as most recruiters aren't available weekends. Thank you James for all your help and your flexibility - much appreciated! I am very happy in my new role :)

I have worked with James over the past few years, he and his company have supplied superb senior account management team members to Avvio. He knows my company, he understands our ethics and needs and saves huge amounts of our time by only putting forwards great candidates.

I can’t thank James enough. It was my first career move, which made changing jobs seem very daunting. However, he helped and supported me through the whole process - from preparing me for my interview, to helping me writing my letter of resignation. He really went the extra mile and gave me confidence throughout the whole process.

James is by far the most attentive, flexible and supportive recruiter I've come across. He understood what I was looking for almost immediately and took the time to thoughtfully answer any questions I was holding. James is a genuinely nice guy who is easy to talk to and brimming with words of wisdom. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for their next move in the Marketing / Comms / Creative space.

Monne is a skilled recruiter with a brilliant eye for matching people to businesses. She was able to identify exactly what I was looking for, and at a time when it wasn't all that clear to me! Monne fully understood my requirements and guided me through the interview process with an expert hand. And to top it all off she's a really lovely person! Are you a Designer, Account Handler or Project Manager in the marketing and design industry? Give Monne a call!

James listened to my career ambitions and took time to understand my skills before helping me to develop an effective CV clearly communicating my strengths to a number of creative organisations. He was able to quickly arrange meetings with key decision makers and was on hand to offer professional advice and guidance throughout the recruitment process, resulting in a fantastic career placement.

Senior Account Manager
After working with Monne, I can easily say that she is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. She was swift and efficient, at the same time attentive to anything I needed and keeping me totally in the loop with what was happening the other end. She kept me calm and prepared me for interviews which made everything work smoothly! I am extremely grateful to have been able to work with her and thanks to her I landed the job!
Kim Pengilly
Account Executive
My experience of working with James has been exceptional; from the initial contact and throughout the whole recruitment process James consistently supported me. He was always available for phone calls, both in and out of working hours, even weekends. And his excellent advice and support when I needed to prepare for interviews was extremely helpful.
Abs Patel
Account Executive
When I first approached James he took time to understand my skills & experience and what I wanted to do. He came up with jobs to match, helped tune my CV, briefed me thoroughly prior to interview and marshalled job offers openly and effectively. Consequently he’s placed me in my last two jobs. James is direct, if you’re not right for a job he’ll tell you why, but he’s friendly with it. And, whether you want it or not, he’ll offer any advice that he believes will improve your chances.

Senior Account Manager
Monne is by far the best recruiter I've ever had contact me. Attentive from the word go, she had taken time prior to our first chat to understand my CV, my skill set and the call was to determine what I'm looking for moving forward. With this, Monne discussed a job description she thought I would fit and a role I would enjoy. Available via text, call and e-mail, Monne made sure I was kept in the loop during the entire process from start to finish. Thanks to Monne I'm now working at the company she had sent me to an interview for. Needless to say, other recruiters must step up their game, Monne's in town!
Zanab Zakaria
Account Manager
James is probably the best recruiter I've come across in my professional life. He really understood my skills, experience and personality and was therefore able to place me in the perfect position and company. Superb integrity, always available to take phone calls and give advice, extremely honest and great at prepping for interviews.
Emma Molyneaux
Account Director
I've known James for many years. He has always kept me in the loop with new opportunities that might serve the development of my career. He recently brought me an overseas opportunity in a large international agency. James helped me through the whole process including the move overseas. He is always at the end of the phone day and night to help with those little questions that play on your mind. I would not only recommend him as a recruiter for the individual but hope to use him in the future in my new role to expand my team.
