TESTIMONIALS

Joanna Pullen

Joanna Pullen

Manager of Customer Strategy & Analytics

Jen is one of that rare breed of recruiter who listens to you, adds value to the process for the candidate and communicates openly and frequently. She connected me to a role that I would not have found myself that is a great fit and exactly what I was looking for!

Jennifer Elworthy

Jennifer Elworthy

Director of Marketing & Communications

Jen has been a great help in finding the right person for a couple of roles. She quickly got to grips with quite complex requirements, including cultural fit, and presented a series of strong candidates. She was also a good sounding board throughout the process, offering insights and advice.

Claire Cronin

Claire Cronin

Chief Marketing Officer

Jen listens carefully to your requirements and is great at understanding both the technical skills for the role but also the broader cultural context the successful candidate will need to operate within. She found "dormant" candidates, not actively looking for another role and placed a great senior leader with us who thrived from Day One.

Nick Ashley

Nick Ashley

Head of Media and Planning

As the recruitment consultant who I worked with to secure a move client-side as Head of Media at Tesco, Jen was attentive, professional and diligent. She was a great listener throughout the process, was always available to talk and give her opinion, and has continued to be available for consultation and discussion after my appointment. I had not come across Carter Murray previously, but would highly recommend them as a result of Jen's positive attitude throughout.

Arnd Pickhardt

Arnd Pickhardt

Advertising & Marketing Director

Jen has helped me to find two new senior members for my team. She found exactly the right candidates for each of the positions, with the process being highly professional throughout. I would personally recommend Jen to anyone who is looking for top quality candidates for senior roles within the marketing and advertising sector.

Tanya Handkammer Gilber

Tanya Handkammer Gilber

Membership Marketing Manager

Jen identified me as a suitable candidate for a really great position and I credit part of my success in getting that role to Jen's commitment and professionalism. At every stage of the recruitment process, Jen thoroughly explained what was required, answered any questions I had and provided much-needed support and reassurance. She is extremely personable, reliable and organised within a very busy environment and demonstrates invaluable marketing industry insight. I have since worked with Jen client-side to recruit into my own team and she took time to fully understand the brief and recommend suitable candidates. She is always a pleasure to work with!

Tom Ottey

Senior Content Marketing Manager

Jen was fantastic in my search for a new role. I can't recommend her professionalism enough.

Nicola Pope

Nicola Pope

HR Advisor

Jen recently helped us to recruit into a very important and niche position at a time of year which is notoriously hard to recruit during. I was grateful to Jen for her persistence in finding us the right candidate in experience, competence and culture fit, which was not easy due to the very particular role requirements. Jen kept me up to date throughout the process and I appreciated her honest viewpoint and professionalism throughout the process. Highly recommended.

Richard Bailey

Richard Bailey

Head of Group Marketing

Jen recently found us a superb Social Media & Content Controller as part of a newly created social media team within the business. Jen invested the time and effort to understand what we were looking for in terms of experience, skill set and company culture and managed a very smooth recruitment process from end to end. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jen to any consumer brand who is looking to hire top senior marketing talent into their team.
