Commenting on her experiences with tml Partners;

There are many ‘marketing headhunters’ in the UK, but I can honestly say that tml Partners actually are specialists who know what’s happening in the marketplace and proactively talk to businesses to introduce them to the right candidates, and visa-versa. Charlie gave me the best briefings and feedback throughout the interview process and ultimately negotiated a super contract which everyone was happy with. Charlie cares about his candidates and wants to make sure the process is as smooth as possible for all parties. He is a joy to work with.
