    Their US-based leadership team was eager to get full visibility on Brightroll’s actual and perceived position in-market in the UK. To this end, round8’s search was nonlinear.

    We mapped the UK media market at Media Director, Digital Director, Country Director and MD-level.

    “round8 was everything we were looking for in an executive partner – genuine collaboration, a tuned ear to our needs and the marketplace, a deep network of contacts and a process that was fluid and flexible enough to accommodate changes that inevitably arise. We benefited enormously from their energy and expertise.”

    I have known Jim since he set up round8 back in 2000 and have been both placed by him as well as using him to recruit into my various teams. Jim is incredibly intuitive. He has placed me in my last two roles both of which he knew and understood very clearly what I wanted in a position and understanding exactly the culture and ‘fit’ I was looking for. And just as importantly, what I wasn’t looking for. He is incredibly knowledgeable, an expert at what he does and as such has a fantastic network of clients and candidates. He’s also just a lovely person to work with.

    Exceptionally dedicated is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Alex. I have had the pleasure of working with Alex for three years whilst at Amobee, collaborating on several large recruitment projects. I was particularly impressed by her deep understanding of us as a client, and her ability to then interpret briefs and match these to ideal candidate talent – a skill that comes naturally to her. Alex is extremely professional and radiates positivity, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. As a HR professional to lead a project, or as an employee, Alex earns my highest recommendation.
