Darius joined Macildowie in 2010. Having built an enviable reputation as an HR recruiter of choice across Northamptonshire, and leading our HR and Sales and Marketing Divisions, Darius was appointed as Regional Managing Director for the South Midlands, Home Counties and London. He also specialises in Senior Executive HR Recruitment across the East Midlands.
Darius has pioneered various networking and Thought Leadership events including Macildowie’s EVP workshops and believes that working in a true partnership based on transparency and trust is the key to a long term sustainable relationship.
"With a culture change programme implemented and a new head office move on the horizon, we wanted to ensure that Joules was appropriately positioned to attract and retain talent that is aligned with our businesses ethos.
Darius helped us do this by delivering a free 90 minute workshop that was focused on helping us to optimise our Employer Brand.
It helped us define our 'purpose,' and create more of an awareness as to why someone would want to work for our business. We were also given some great insight into how to enhance the interview experience and which levers to pull on LinkedIn to leverage the brand.
I'd recommend this session to any organisation who is wanting to attract or retain talent or reposition their employer brand."

“Darius was highly recommended to me by a colleague when I was seeking my first HR job post-graduation and I can absolutely see why. He took the time to genuinely understand my level of skill and experience and subsequently put me forward for several relevant roles with a range of well-known organisations. He has been friendly and professional throughout my job search. I particularly appreciated his efforts to ensure I was making the decisions that felt right for me in relation to potential roles. I would wholeheartedly recommend Darius to anyone looking for an HR role in the Milton Keynes/Northampton area.”

“I've worked with Darius on several HR requirements we've had as a business and would recommend him highly as a recruitment consultant. Darius has proved himself to be a true professional and sees the value in building up long term relationships with his clients in order that he is regarded as a partner to them. Darius has built his strong relationship up with the Norbert Dentressangle recruitment team through his demonstration of integrity and desire to understand our business, which in turn leads him to submitting only the most qualified candidates.”
