I have engaged the recruitment services of Mark Dakin for approximately 15 years, the last 13 years when running his own recruitment company MDA Technical Appointments. We have gone through continued growth over this period as an organisation and required ongoing support in the recruitment process to satisfy our need for Contract staff for ongoing Programmes and Permanent staff for our long term growth.
Mark has become one of our main recruiters for general appointments and sole/exclusive recruiter for key senior appointments. He has visited the organisation on a number of occasions and met with most of our key decision makers (a high percentage of these people he has introduced) This has enabled him to understand the ever changing demands we are set through evolving Technology and the demands of the Global World for our product and services
Time is a valued commodity that I don’t have, so having the knowledge that when I have a requirement I can discuss it with Mark leave it with him and have full confidence that it will be dealt with to successful completion. It’s a partnership which we continue to develop and I look forward to continuing this in the years to comeMrs Lita Bird, HR Director. Smiths Detection (part of the Smiths Industries Group)
MDA were giving an appointment for a Senior Technical Project Manager and the experience we had with them was a very pleasurable one. Their knowledge of the media/advertising industry was second to none which meant that the quality of candidates received were of a very high standard. Personable and professional, I will be using MDA againRosie Hatton, Managing Director. Hatton Marketing
Will solved a major problem for us at DisplayLink by finding the best candidate for a mission critical role, within an hour. He succeeded in an hour where others had failed over a few days. How? By working to best practice, by listening, and by hard work. We will be asking Will to recruit for us again, however will be asking him first next time!Lewis Turner, Technical Recruitment Manager.

MDA are passionate about people and always look to help you find the right person to fit into the team. One of the most fun companies to work with that I knowRaf Ali, Chief Technical Officer. Msolidair
Will adds a personal touch to each of his communications, which makes you feel you're dealing with a friend rather than a 'get as many contracts as you can' recruitment consultant. His interest for ensuring quality placements shows through in his work and always has time available to deal with any concerns you may have. An overall excellent consultantAdam Craven, Director.
