About Us

What could be more satisfying and worthwhile than helping people to find the best way forward in their professional careers? A successful career enables people to achieve their ambitions and find happiness for themselves and their families.

Morgan McKinley is a professional recruitment and talent management company operating in the United Kingdom, Ireland, EMEA and Asia Pacific. 

However, that is only a very rough outline of our business. Our background story paints a much richer picture, and the true value of what we do lies in the detail.

The background story

We won’t trouble you with the dry facts and figures or a timeline. What really matters in the Morgan McKinley story is the incredibly important discovery we made on our journey.

There are three groups in the recruitment business: the hiring organisation, the candidate, and the agency that brings the two together.

Traditionally, the hiring organisation would tell the agency when it has a vacancy to fill and the agency would then scour the market to find the right candidate.

We saw that this approach was designed for short-term fixes. As the best talent is increasingly scarce, it meant that clients missed out on the best candidates.

So we decided to think long term and develop relationships with top talent. As a result, when a client comes to us looking for a professional to fill a particular role, we already know the best candidates. And, most important of all, those candidates trust us to do what is best for them.

The detail

Simple ideas are usually very tough to implement, and this is what makes life at Morgan McKinley both challenging and rewarding.

As a Morgan McKinley recruitment consultant, your job is to build those all-important relationships with talented professionals.

In practice, this means going beyond what anyone else is going to do for them. For example, you will know their professional disciplines and their industries better than the competition. You will explore their best next step forward but also their long term goals and the opportunities that will help them to achieve those goals. And crucially, you will invest time and effort building their confidence and preparing them for interviews as opportunities arise.

As recruitment specialists, we will look for people who share our values and we provide a framework of support and guidance that will enable you to succeed. Our approach is summarised in our vision:

People empowered to serve, to specialise, to lead.

  • Empowered: we give you the responsibility, support and incentives necessary to succeed.
  • To serve: helping our candidates and clients better than anyone else.
  • To specialise: being totally focused on the disciplines and industries we serve.
  • To lead: being the “must call” agency in every discipline in every market.
