Daniel Marks has bolstered its London team with the appointment of experienced consultant David Finlay.

Daniel Marks' new hires are helping to globalise the agency.

By introducing a talent partner in-house, employed by Daniel Marks, clients will be making a significant cost saving whilst having a full or part time dedicated recruiter on-site. They will not only be well versed in the employer brand but will have direct access to:

  • 25 consultants in London
  • 60 consultants globally
  • Our head of diversity & inclusion - Gaby Dutton-Williams
  • A database of 15,000 candidates developed over 14 years

David says “The benefits of using Alias are a significant cost saving over typical recruitment spend, by having a committed talent acquisition partner on-site we are offering transparency on the hiring process, so our clients have visibility on where their spend goes.

“Working onsite allow us to plug into client’s organisation, understand how they operate, their culture and effectively manage their employer brand which in turn will lead to a leaner hiring process effecting time to hire and ultimately cost per hire. We can flex the frequency of the need for the talent partner to be onsite based on demand, however full support will be available at all times”.
