MM Search shortlisted in The Global Recruiter Awards

Posted: 11th August 2021

Scotland’s fastest-growing executive search firm, MM Search, has been shortlisted in the Best Newcomer category of The Global Recruiter UK Awards 2021.

The Global Recruiter UK Awards are highly regarded and serve as a celebration of the recruitment industry, rewarding companies that have proved outstanding within the sector.

The Best Newcomer category recognises internationally-focused recruitment businesses that have an in-depth understanding of the industries they serve. MM Search pride themselves on their unrivalled knowledge of their clients’ needs, the sectors they work in, and their operations’ international reach.

Now operating in over 30 countries, MM Search develops close relationships with every client to build trust and authentic industry insight with a collaborative approach to executive candidate placement.

The judges will also review the steps taken by the nominees to adapt and evolve to continue to support their clients’ needs during challenging circumstances, an area in which MM search have excelled over the past 18 months. The team didn’t hesitate to harness the latest conferencing software and technologies to create a digital space where they could continue to offer their consultative approach without losing the human touch present in every client relationship. MM Search went one step further, launching the “Rules of Leadership” podcast during lockdown to help inspire and engage business leaders in the face of adversity.

MM Search’s Founding Managing Partner, Ken Morrice, says: “We’re absolutely over the moon to have reached the shortlist for this prestigious award. The past 18 months have, of course, thrown us all many challenges. Still, it has also been a very exciting period for MM Search as we continued to grow and develop our team and find new, agile ways of working with our clients both in the UK and internationally.”

Derek MacFeate, Founding Managing Partner, added: “It feels amazing to achieve this kind of recognition for our hard work and our internal talent. I’m so proud of the company and our incredible team and look forward to attending the awards in October and meeting other industry-leading recruiters.”
