About Us

At Macildowie we have built our reputation as one of the UK's leading independent recruitment businesses.  We built our reputation as the go-to recruitment brand in the East Midlands, expanding into Milton Keynes and the Home Counties in 2015 then London in 2021.

We pride ourselves on the quality of the service that we offer to our customers, developing strong, ongoing relationships with our clients and candidates ensuring they trust us to meet their needs. 

Having built an unrivalled Customer Value Proposition for our candidates and clients we believe that we're different to other recruitment businesses, many of our customers would also agree.  In particular, we recently won an award in recognition of the added value consultancy workshops we have been running since 2008 and have also been shortlisted for the Recruiter Awards 2016 for ongoing excellence regarding "Client Service".

We add value to our customers in many ways but it is our Linkedin workshops and use of Mindmill Psychometrics that really differentiate us:

  • Our candidate workshop is called - How to improve your Personal Brand and network using Linkedin.
  • Our client workshop is called - How to use Linkedin to Recruit for Free.
  • Mindmill allows us to open up new talent pools of candidates,  for our clients, based upon their behavioural match to the culture of the recruiting company.  To read more about Mindmill - click here.

Our Linkedin workshops have been referred to as "counter-intuitive", but we believe it is proof that we do work differently in order to build long term, sustainable recruitment relationships built on trust.

Our customer first approach recently led to our win at The National Online Recruitment Awards - we came first in the 'Best Large Recruitment Agency' category.
