The Jefferson Maguire Story

Jefferson Maguire Executive Search was founded in 1998 to offer our clients an exceptional service when looking to recruit the finest candidates in their niche.

Our founder and Managing Director David Pike has had over 30 years in the Recruitment Industry starting by owning and growing a very successful High Street agency which he subsequently sold to start Jefferson Maguire.

All our Executive Recruiters/Headhunters are trained to a very high standard in the art of executive recruiting and headhunting.

Our refreshingly different approach, not only finds the TOP QUALITY CANDIDATES – the winners and achievers, but takes away the risk and expense usually incurred by using our competitors.

Although there are many specialist niche markets within our organisation – the methods used by our Executive Recruiters are exactly the same – so we can honestly say that we are expert recruiters over a wide spectrum of disciplines. We can find your company the real winners the ones that you would love to have on board, and we do not bombard you with CVs, just a simple shortlist in as little as 21 working days.

“I would like to thank Jefferson Maguire personally for the effort they made to really understand the different skill sets required for each of the positions. Followed by the well focused search which led to a good group of candidates being put forward, all of which had strong credentials for the job.

I was especially pleased with the way Jefferson Maguire communicated to me the profile of each candidate and then quickly followed up to establish my views. This was helpful and definitely speeded up the selection process.”

“Following our recent recruitment campaigns to select and appoint a number of General Store Managers and Cluster Coaches, I would like to thank Jefferson Maguire very much for the excellent help they gave me in these matters.

When dealing with recruitment consultants, one often feels a sense of concern – will they understand your industry, will they understand your firm and its culture, will they provide reasonable candidates, and most of all will the charges be too high?

I can honestly say that they took considerable pains to make sure that the first three of these were not an issue. They spent a great deal of time trying to find out more about Asda and precisely what we were looking for and, demonstrably provided us with a range of candidates. As to the charges, their charging structure based on success fee only is far more reasonable than most head hunters”.
