Customer Feedback is everything to us.

It really doesn’t matter what we say or how we say it, it’s our candidates and clients opinions that count. We believe that the positive testimonials we’ve received from customers show how effective our approach to FMCG recruitment is.

Below is a selection of feedback we’ve received which tells the story of what it’s like to work with us and our specialist consultants.

Paul Jones

Paul and the team at Mackenzie Jones have supported us on our recruitment needs for a number of years. They truly stand out from the crowd in recruitment by taking the time to fully understand our business strategy, requirements, culture and values that are important to us. This is reflected in how effectively they present our business to candidates. I’ve found them to be highly flexible when plans change, they operate with pace, honesty and frankness when needed. Without doubt, they have become a trusted and powerful partner for us.

Mackenzie Jones from day 1 has been extremely approachable and professional. All contacts we have dealt with go above and beyond when it comes to any random requests from me as well as the day to day recruitment that is carried out to such a high standard. Mackenzie Jones are a pleasure to work with.

Just wanted to send a massive thank you for all of the work on the European recruitment. It was great to work with you, your advice and support was brilliant. I am super excited about the 3 new starters joining in a few weeks time, as I think they’ll be real assets to the team and ABWF more generally.

I've worked with Billy for several years now, and with Mackenzie Jones for even longer. Billy really invests in his clients, taking the time to understand who they are and what their needs are. I know I can rely on Billy to seek out not only the strongest selection of candidates for the role but applicants that he knows will be a great fit for me, my team, and the business culture. I can't recommend Billy highly enough.

I cannot recommend Billy and Mackenzie Jones enough. His knowledge of the market and being the bridge between brands and finding talented, passionate individuals is second to none. We at The Juice Smith have also been incredibly impressed with the speed at which Billy operates on finding top candidates. We will continue to use Billy for numerous positions across the team as we grow. Thank you again Billy for your help!

MKJ have been great and provided us with some amazing candidates. The process has always been professional, and we work really well together!

Billy and the team at Mackenzie Jones are great at understanding what you are looking for in a candidate and they take the time to understand the culture and fit for the business first. We were sent lot's of quality candidates and Billy was great at keeping us informed throughout the process. We are so pleased to have found the perfect person with the help of Billy and Paul.

We successfully found our Growth Director for Ecomm with Billy Maddock. Billy was a smart and savvy operator from the off, he quickly understood when we wanted, challenged us appropriately on scope and then went to market with pace and enthusiasm. Billy’s communication was excellent throughout and I would recommend him to other fast paced, high growth businesses.

Mackenzie Jones have successfully supported Taylor and Francis on numerous recruitment campaigns. They distinguish themselves by having a thorough knowledge of our business, our needs and who we are looking for in terms of future employees. Their market knowledge and reputation from both a client and candidate perspective is not only impressive but also comforting to know that they will do their outmost to make the process as smooth and seamless as possible.

I have to say its so refreshing to work with an agency that: (1) understands the needs of a start-up, (2) really takes the time to listen to and grasp the brief – and (3) then follow up with quality candidates. Throughout the process the communication was brilliant and we secured a great candidate. We will definitely work with Mackenzie Jones again.

Following engagement with Mackenzie Jones we have found that they have become a true partner to our organisation and great ambassadors for our brand. Apart from the day to day recruitment side of our relationship, Mackenzie Jones assist us with further value added services such as Talent mapping for prospective roles, talent planning for immediate requirements, salary benchmarking and networking with other professionals and similar organisations. The team at Mackenzie Jones have built strong relationships with the internal Talent team as well as stakeholders to really understand the nuances of the role, the culture and have really helped us with integral hires. We have found that Mackenzie Jones have great insights, networks and knowledge of the FMCG Food and Drink arena which they call on to assist us with finding solutions to some of our Talent Acquisition needs. Due to their success within the UK operations, they are also supporting us with our operations beyond the UK

I really value the time you invest in getting to understand us as a Manufacturing unit and the type of behaviours and skill sets we are looking for. We have had some fantastic new starters join our Leadership and Extended Leadership Team that I believe have really raised the bar of performance. I feel very confident that you are able to source and secure leaders of the future for our business.

We have worked with Mackenzie Jones for over two years on multiple senior level roles. Each time Mackenzie Jones were successful in engaging and exploring the market place and secure top talent for Adelie Foods.  We are very happy and impressed with Mackenzie Jones and they are always our first port of call.

Mackenzie Jones possess a deep knowledge of the food sector and have a wide network of well qualified individuals across various job disciplines and levels.  Mackenzie Jones have impressively improved our time to hire on several roles. A pleasure to work with.

I really value the time Mackenzie Jones have invested in getting to understand us as a Manufacturing unit and the type of behaviours and skill sets we are looking for.

Maurice is a pleasure to work with and has worked very hard on our recruitment needs. He thoroughly pre-vets resources and provides a shortlist of quality candidates based on our requirements. Mackenzie Jones offer a unique personal service and I highly recommend them

Maurice and I have been working together for 6 months now. He is dedicated to finding the right key to fit the right keyhole going above and beyond my expectations. He cultivates a relationship that taps into the mind-set of the client so you know the people that are being put in front of you are of the highest standards which reduces the amount of time spent looking to find the right key.

Maurice is a one-of-a-kind recruiter. He lifted my spirits and boosted my confidence in a very quiet Covid-19 job searching period. I would directly credit him with giving me the self-belief to push forward and get not just one, but two job offers following my dealings with him. He is honest, thorough and hugely encouraging. He has left a lasting impression on me as someone that would go the extra mile, not just for his client but also for the candidates he puts forward for selection. I recommend him without reservation as the best recruiter I have ever dealt with and he will be the first person I contact if I’m ever back on the job market.

It is my pleasure to recommend Mubeen Shariff with whom I have been working for my next career move. The level of time devoted to myself as a client of his and prompt response throughout the process has been invaluable. I would therefore recommend Mubeen to any other working professionals requiring similar support on their next career endeavours.

I worked with Josh at Mackenzie Jones as a client where our company had a tricky recruitment requirement. Josh was always helpful and reachable, he totally understood our needs and worked tirelessly to fill our vacant roles. I would definitely work with Josh & Mackenzie Jones again!

Junead has recently supported me to recruit for an Operations Director and several Senior Manager roles. The entire process has been extremely professional and efficient, due to the fact that Junead has an in depth knowledge and vast experience of recruiting within the supply chain and logistics market. He was able to quickly understand and tune in to my exact candidate requirements and the whole process was efficient and transparent, thanks to his exceptional communication skills. I was impressed with the calibre of the candidates he sent for interview and very happy with the candidates we recruited. I can highly recommend Junead and Mackenzie Jones recruitment if you want a professional and efficient recruitment solution.
