"I've dealt with agencies throughout my career, matching me with jobs here and there and the experience can be well, quite stressful - often the agent doesn't know the spec well, or doesn't know the industry well, and that can be frustrating.
Amanda and Fiona recently called me about an opportunity, and I've never had such a positive experience with an agency as I did with Denholm. Both ladies knew their stuff, were attentive and personable and made me feel, well, like a person - ha!
It's tough out there, so knowing there's an agency doing it right, is pretty encouraging!"
"Denholm Associates are the only Recruiters 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! I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again and would fully recommend them, and have done to other people."
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.
"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!"
"From the first meeting I had with Steph and Douglas 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. An opportunity came up quite quickly and I got the impression that the closing date had passed but the team managed to get me an initial interview which I was delighted with and extremely grateful for. Not only that but Steph went well above and beyond to both prep me for the interview and also fill me with confidence, both went a very long way to ensure the first interview was a success. Although I'm sure Steph is dealing with a number of roles and supporting a number of candidates I was made to feel like I was her number one priority throughout the process which is a huge credit to her. She even made time for me on the phone late one evening when she was at home and also had a sick child to deal with at the same time. 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."
"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."
Business Director Marketing Services
"I found Paul to be highly professional, knowledgeable about the industry, and extremely supportive during my interview process with Innis and Gunn. I would highly recommend Paul to other professionals looking to make their next move."
"Jackie was a complete breath of fresh air during my job hunt. Her friendly nature makes her extremely approachable which always put me at ease. She was a great help ensuring my cv properly conveyed my experience and I never felt like I couldn't ask any questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jackie to any friends looking to make a career move."
"In all my dealings with Denholm I found them extremely professional and very thorough throughout. They conducted the process of my recruitment with both support and appropriate challenge ensuring that they had found the right 'round peg' for the right 'round hole.' I gained a full understanding of both the role and company I was joining and felt that I had been provided with all the relevant facts I needed to make the right decision. I have no hesitation in recommending Denholm and look forward to working with them on future projects in my new role."
"Fiona helped place me in a new role as Head of Digital with Mary's Meals at the end of last year and I just wanted to sing her praises a bit, as she was absolutely brilliant throughout what ended up being a slightly more convoluted process than I think she, I or anyone expected. She was really friendly, supportive and couldn't have been more accessible and helpful throughout. I've spent most of my career agency side and wanted a move client side and a change of scene in a role like this with a charity or similar, so I'm really grateful to her and to Denholm for helping me with what is basically the perfect role for where I am just now."
"I don't think I've ever come across a recruitment professional (or any professional for that matter!) with such a genuine investment in the success of her clients. From the get go Jackie worked incredibly hard to understand my needs and skill set, and was in constant contact with me throughout the recruitment process. Her feedback was helpful and detailed and she has incredible professional insight into the digital marketing and agency space. After being referred to Jackie from another happy (and employed!) camper, I can't recommend her highly enough."
Head of Digital Marketing
"What can I say, Douglas was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout my transition from P&G to Edrington. From our initial discussion through to following up post the beginning of my new role to check how things were going, Douglas's attention to detail has been first class. He's highly responsive & I genuinely felt like he had my best interests in mind. Put simply, if you need a recruitment consultant - don't consider anyone else!"
Global Marketing Manager - Cutty Sark
"Looking for a new job can be stressful, but Jackie makes the entire process a bit less nerve-wracking. Throughout the process, she was there to support me and help me prepare for interviews. She even continued to check in when she was off with bronchitis, and had her colleague check in on me, too. Once I received the job offer, she didn't just disappear like some recruiters do--instead, she reached out at regular intervals to ensure I was doing well and was comfortable in my new position. Jackie has a true investment in the people she is recruiting, which truly makes it wonderful to work with her."
"I worked with Jonathan in my search for a new position in Edinburgh. Jonathan was extremely, helpful, responsive, efficient and professional. He made the whole search on moving from Galway, Ireland to Edinburgh and the entire interview process so much easier. Jonathan went the extra mile and was there when needed and provided updates even when he was out of the office. I am now starting in a role in Edinburgh in the next couple of weeks! I would highly recommend Jonathan. He was a pleasure to work with."
Business Development Representative
"Paul, secured me a role with a Top Tier UK spirits business. Paul's professionalism and integrity are his true qualities along with his personal coaching of me through an Industry and Company I had no experience of was invaluable. In short the best recruiter I have worked with in FMCG in 20 years."
