New Appointments Complete Macildowie’s Management Team


A number of new appointments at Midlands-based recruitment consultancy, Macildowie has capped the end of a strong quarter of growth.

Cassie Mallon has joined as a divisional manager to lead the HR recruitment team in Nottingham and Derby. With more than 11 years of experience in the recruitment sector, Cassie will form the final piece of the 14-strong management team.

The company also moved closer to its goal of a total of 100 employees by the end of 2019, recruiting a further 13 recruitment and trainee consultants. The company now employs 85 across its offices in Nottingham, Leicester, and Milton Keynes.

The recent arrivals at Macildowie’s new Nottingham headquarters are consultants Tia Billinger, Martyn Kingsbury, and Jeanette Spicer, trainee consultants Emily Bodden-Burton, Steve Haworth, Claire King, Amy Frost, and Holly Farmer, and business support administrator Steph Smith.

Joining the team at the company’s offices in Leicester and Milton Keynes, will be recruitment consultants Kate Oliver, Annabel Patel, and Lauren Smith, trainee consultants Ross Abrahams, George Neyland, and business support administrator Natalie Widdowson.

James Taylor, managing director of Macildowie, explained that the new arrivals will allow the company to continue to its growth. He said:

“We’re delighted to have our management team in place, it has been a big investment and gives us the platform to execute our strategic objectives and achieve our ambitious growth plans. Over the previous two years we have recruited a wealth of experience into the business. Now we have created such a strong platform and culture, we envisage that the majority of our recruitment will now be in graduates and trainee consultants.

“We have also recently held two graduate assessment days that have been incredibly successful and we have offered roles to six talented individuals. Five of them will join us in September in our first true ‘talent pool’ intake for a number of years. It will be the first time that our new training facilities will be properly utilised to train recruitment consultants from scratch.”

Since moving to its new headquarters, Macildowie has seen a threefold increase in the number of exclusive Macildowie One sessions, which enable clients to interview a selection of handpicked candidates in just one day.

As well as this, since January Macildowie has seen more customers placing vacancies with them and more candidates interviewing for roles than ever before. The move to a new headquarters has seen double digit growth on sales compared to last year and, in the previous two weeks, the company has booked in 67 customer meetings to discuss future, exclusive agreements.

As part of its commitment to the wellbeing of its employees, Macildowie also recently hosted a Mental Health & Wellbeing roundtable in collaboration with Westfield Health. The roundtable was the latest of the workshops hosted by the company, offering an insight into issues such as GDPR and how businesses can use LinkedIn to recruit for free.
