Who is Marshall McAdam?

We like to imagine him as a spirited Scotsman striding determinedly through the Scottish Highlands. To us, Marshall McAdam is a representation of the bold spirit of our founders and their goal to prove that there is a better way to run a recruitment firm.

In truth, Marshall McAdam is an amalgamation of two names from the family of one of our founders, Hamish Sinclair. Hamish was the driving force behind Marshall McAdam and he encouraged Ben Cass to join him on the journey to create the business in 2009.

The fact that our name doesn’t refer to our founders is representative of their intent to found a company based on talented, like-minded recruiters. Since the early days, they have been succeeding in their goal to create a recruitment company that was personal and focused on reputation rather than transactional and based on sales.

Our History

    Marshall McAdam and Vicki have been fantastic in placing me in my current role. This is the second time that Marshall McAdam have placed me in a role and on both occasions they have been able to be tenacious and join the dots and present me in a role that has meant thinking outside the square. This has meant understanding the real client needs and how I could meet those needs.

    Working with Vicki at Marshall McAdam was a good experience. She was always on top of any queries or issues I had. I would work with her again without hesitation.

    Richard Green showed me the professional consideration that you hope to get but often don't as a contractor in the IT industry. He took time to meet me, understand my background and what I had to offer. When it came to matching me with a job there was a great fit instead of the hit-and-miss you usually get from recruiters who haven't even bothered to meet you. I'm looking forward to an ongoing relationship with Richard and Marshall McAdam. I highly recommend them for their personal and considered approach.

    I'm on my second assignment with Marshall McAdam dealing with Richard Green. I have been really impressed by his level of knowledge of the Business Analyst role and his ability to match my skills to role opportunities. The admin for both on-boarding and the regular time-sheets and pay is simple and effective and very reliable. Overall, I am really impressed with the organisation and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs an agency who do there job well. Thank you!

    The PEAK event by Marshall McAdam ran very professionally. Attendees were engaged by the organisers and the agenda was followed. There also was catering in house which was a nice compliment to the event. I enjoyed the open discussions and sharing amongst the peers in the industry. I look forward attending similar events in future learning and sharing together.
