Enthusiastic Events Manager

"Gareth and I worked together when I was looking to transition into a more senior role in my field.
From the start, Gareth was extremely helpful and professional in the recruitment process, offering a personable and consistent service. He made sure to keep me informed at every step of the interview process, always offered advice before interviews and was quick to offer feedback from potential employers. From the off-set it was clear that Gareth would only present you with roles of genuine interest and potential, and this is the best experience I have had of using recruitment services to date. Can't recommend working with Gareth enough!"

Delighted Marketing Director

"Denholm Associates are the only headhunters I would go to for a job in Marketing. I’ve been with them my entire Marketing Career and have placed me in all my jobs.
They know exactly how to see beyond your skills, into softer skills, cultural fit, and really tease out what jobs would suit you.
I’ve always had an amazing service from them from placing me in manager positions, head of roles and my current Director position.
I also think the people at Denholm are truly fantastic, both on a personal level and professional!"

Happy Contractor

"Agata at Denholm helped me find the perfect role after I moved to the UK.
Even while I was still in my home country I always felt like she was working in the background to uncover opportunities and sell me in to prospective employers.
She worked to international hours to learn about what I was looking for in a role, and stay in touch with me and keep me informed throughout the process.
Agata was very friendly and approachable and her organisational skills helped me navigate interviews and phone calls when I was new to the country.
As an employee I would highly recommend Denholm and Agata and I have heard positive feedback from my employer as well. Thank you Agata!"

Appreciative Head of Marketing Strategy & Operations

"I have started a piece of work to recruit a new senior role within my team at Virgin Money and just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the approach that Jonathan has taken and the candidates he has found so far. 
The role in my team is a bit of a unique one and the changes currently taking place in the merging Virgin Money and Clydesdale Bank organisation make this assignment a tricky one to get right.  Jonathan spent a good amount of time understanding the business, my newly forming team and the role and delivered six high-quality candidates in a short space of time, which significantly exceeded my expectations. 
The candidates are the best match to a role that I have seen over the years of working with recruitment consultancies and Jonathan has left me no choice other than to spend a day in Glasgow drinking lots of cups of tea to get to know the six candidates informally as I can’t whittle them down based on their CVs!"

Ecstatic eCommerce Support Manager

Denholm has been professional, courteous, and a genuine joy to work with! A heartfelt thank you for helping me find my new role.
Denholm encouraged me to go for the position despite initially withdrawing my application during difficult personal circumstances.
Attentive, personable, and quick to respond throughout the recruitment process. I would happily recommend Denholm to any marketing professional.

Delighted Marketing Manager

"I had the pleasure of working with Denholm to identify the next move in my career.
Denholm closely matched my competencies to the requirements of their client. Throughout the recruitment and selection process, Denholm gave me excellent feedback at each stage and was always on hand to provide information and answer any questions I had.
 I will now look forward to the next step in my career!"

Over the moon Brand Manager

"From the first meeting I had with Denholm I felt that I was in extremely good hands. At the same time, I had met with another recruitment agency to help me with my search but very quickly realised that Denholm's level of professionalism, expertise and personal approach made me feel like I had come to the right place.
Most importantly I felt I could trust the team to do the best for me and go about the process in the right way, I have had the opposite experience with other recruitment agencies in the past!
The process started with a detailed conversation not just to help Steph and Douglas understand what I was looking for and my past experience but it was one that really helped me clarify what would be the best next step in my career.
I was massively impressed by the service I received from Denholm and I will certainly be recommending them to anyone looking to progress their marketing career in Scotland."

Relieved Director of Public Engagement

"I engaged with Denholm, having worked with them successfully in the past, to support the National Galleries of Scotland to recruit our Head of Marketing & Communications.
We had already tried to fill the role directly through an advertising campaign and this experience showed us that our brief required a very broad mix of skills across marketing and communications – from crisis comms to SEO and content marketing to CRM. We concluded this was rare and we needed a more targeted approach. In addition, we needed to find an individual who would embrace the opportunity to apply their experience from other sectors to the arts and have a real understanding for what we do as an organisation so a fit culturally as well.
Denholm undertook a proactive search process to identify a suitable shortlist, worked very tirelessly to ensure the top candidate stayed keen throughout the process and following that, we secured an excellent candidate for the role – who now, 6 months in, is settled in well and having a really positive impact."

Pleased as punch International Sales Manager

"Our company has a long-standing & excellent relationship with Paul & Denholm!
Paul operates with an open mind, always willing to challenge proposals & decisions in order to seek the best outcome for all.
With Paul’s assistance, recruitment is a stress free exercise providing us the opportunity to improve as an organisation via excellent Candidate Recommendation & Recruitment."

Delighted Commercial Analyst

"Denholm was fantastic from start to finish in helping me to get a new job.
Their communication, helpful tips, passion for what they do, flexibility, and relationship with my new employer were all key to ensuring I had the best help possible in getting through the interview stages.
Thank you, you were the best recruiters I have worked with!"

Elated Strategic Director

"I recently undertook a big career change, one that involved a move to an entirely new industry and a step outside my comfort zone.
Jackie's support, knowledge and genuine enthusiasm in me, my prospective employer and the marketing industry as a whole filled me with confidence. I'm positive that if we all had a Jackie in recruitment we would save a lot of time by applying for the right jobs and interviewing the right people the first time round!"

Thrilled Category Analyst

"I just wanted to thank Steph for helping me to get back into employment after living abroad.
She gave great advice and recommendations for updating my CV and took the time to get to know me and understand the kind of role I was looking for. Steph helped build my confidence and made the process straightforward and enjoyable!
I am very thankful for all her hard work in helping me secure my new role."

Appreciative Director

“We asked Denholm to help us find an Inside Sales person for our business; as well as a Global Marketing Manager. Fiona was keen, productive and easy to work with.
She took away all the effort and made employing our new person fun, and I think that went for the candidates too. If you don’t work with Denholm, you should. We could have hired all candidates from both shortlists. Highly recommended.”

Gratified Group Managing Partner​​​​​​​

“We use Denholm because many of their key people come from our sector, so they have an intuitive feel for the right candidate.
We know they won’t waste our time with people who aren’t a good fit for us, either technically or culturally."​​​​​​​

Charmed Marketing Communications Manager

"Amanda took time to really understand what it was I was looking for, and asked all the right questions. I felt she really nailed the brief I gave her, so much so that it made candidate selection difficult because they were all excellent – a nice problem to have when recruiting!"

Enchanted Business Director of Marketing Services

"In an Edinburgh marketplace where I was unfamiliar with the agency landscape, Jackie deftly guided me to the right people and places.
She found opportunities for me and I'm very happy with the results. She's knowledgeable, responsive, and also a nice person."

Chuffed European Marketing Director

"Denholm has successfully recruited 4 outstanding candidates for me since commencing my role as European Marketing Director for Baxters Food Group in January 2019.  Being new to the Scottish marketing industry I was reliant on them to help deliver a restructured marketing team and they made the process not only smooth but enjoyable.  They took time to really understand our business and my ambition for the function as well as the roles and types of people I was after and produced excellent short-lists at junior and senior level.
 At least one of the briefs they delivered was particularly specific and quirky and without their insight and encouragement, it's unlikely I'd have found an individual that perfectly fits this more creative role.  I won't hesitate in using them for future recruitment."
