This is our story

About MLC.

We are changemakers

Picture the scene. It’s 2015. A young(ish) Pete Marshall, top of his recruitment game, a top performer. But something didn’t feel right, something had to change.

A move to another agency or a career change wasn’t going to cut it. Pete needed more. Having always wanted to run his own business, now was the time to launch a new consultancy – a consultancy that listened, that was honest, that delivered a contemporary approach to recruitment for today’s businesses, emerging talent and consultants. Not the same old, same old.

And so MLC was established to not only be a recruitment partner of choice but to change the face and reputation of the recruitment industry.

Now, almost 10 years on, MLC is an award-winning agency for the public and private sector, 20 people strong and growing. We may look different from the MLC of 2015, but our commitment to building a business around our people, driving change and exceeding expectations remains the same.

We live and breathe our values

Be bold

We’re changing the face of the recruitment industry. Driving change takes imaginative thinking, brave choices, hard truths, and we’re here for it. There is always a new way of doing things.

Be you

Nobody else. We champion originality. Your experiences – the frustrations, the revelations, the heart, the growth – make you, your ideas, your way of doing things unique and authentic.

Be one

We focus on the collective win, working shoulder-to-shoulder with our colleagues, clients, candidates. We are not simply filling jobs, we are building something together.

We are more than recruiters

We are colleagues, collaborators, changemakers.

We build long-term relationships to nurture future talent and strengthen organisations. This means taking the time to understand what clients want from their people and what candidates want from their employer.

As a result, we choose lasting connections over short-term wins, every time. We don’t just offer a quick fix, we don’t fixate on the now. We find fresh talent with impact for clients and present unexpected opportunities with longevity for candidates.
