“Mary is an absolute delight to deal with, and has been responsible for recruiting dozens of the merchandisers for the business over the years. Whether it’s a Senior or Assistant Merchandiser, a retained executive search for a Head of Merchandising or a fresh graduate looking to become an Allocator – who she knows instinctively will suit the brand perfectly – she always gets it spot on. She has a genuine passion for M&Co and works with a positivity and integrity that makes her a shining star of the recruitment world.”

“Mary is always my first phone call when it comes to recruiting for my team, and she has found me some fantastic people over the years. Her knowledge of the world of Buying and Merchandising makes her a true expert and the recruitment process smooth and efficient. Her understanding of Fred Perry as a business – its culture and challenges – coupled with her professional, personable service makes her my partner of choice and I would highly recommend her.”

“I have always found the level of service from Mary to be of an extremely high standard. She immediately understands the brief, requirements, fit for the business and the speed in which we needed to appoint the right person. She acts quickly, only sends us candidates who she knows will fit the bill and has a knack of distilling a lot of information into exactly the right candidate, which is a fine skill. Her depth of understanding of the retail market, integrity, honesty and passion makes her a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”

“Expansion at the Jacques Vert Group created the need for a bigger, stronger merchandising team. There is always plenty of choice in the recruitment world, but I chose Mary to manage the project. Within little more than a month I had appointed an entire team from Allocators all the way up to a Head Of, including the more challenging channel, branch and internet merchandising roles. The process was smooth and the exclusivity arrangement meant that I had their undivided attention. I found her a real pleasure to work with – and she even took the whole team out to celebrate!”
