The way we work

There are many reasons why you might want to work with a recruitment company: You might need us to find you a star; you might want some benchmarking information; you might want to forge a long-standing relationship to build a team. Whatever your reason, we will always offer honest and impartial advice. Sometimes we can help and sometimes we can’t but we see our job to try everything we can to get your organisation to where it needs to be.

List of Services

At hatch, the list is vast and growing, as is our knowledge and experience in the market. We can tackle any requirement you might have whether it’s a Marketing Manager, Head of Communications, Product Management, Category Management, Business Development or any one of a number of titles that are marketing or business generation focused. We work with digital and traditional marketers , CRM and analytical experts. We have a network that spans from Director to Executive level and all in between.

At hatch, we approach every assignment with fresh eyes and will always be honest as to what level of service we think you might need.


Here we are truly able to partner with your business.

The reasons our clients use us on a retained basis are so they can take the time to get into the detail that will ultimately help us provide the most suitable candidates. This is often the most valuable part of the process as it means we have searched the market in detail and provided the very best people rather than representing the candidates we know now. We also handle feedback and ensure a positive experience for all candidates.


Sometimes you just need to see options.

We can still add significant value to the recruitment process by presenting you with candidates who will have been met and interviewed by our team. All candidates are fully briefed on the opportunity and we always seek permission to represent them. We will act swiftly and professionally to provide you with a viable shortlist in the timeframes you need.


We can help with short or long term projects; cover maternity, illness, secondments; or just help get you through a busy period.

There are occasions when you will need to find someone capable of coming into the organisation on short notice to cover maternity or illness, to work on a project, or to be a change agent. We have a network of experienced Interim managers with specialist skillsets who can add value from the outset.

Gergely Major - Business Development Manager at Crowe Clark Whitehill LLP
We used Patrick McLean from Hatch when we recruited our Business Development manager. Patrick was a pleasure to work with and a true professional. The candidates for our business development role were all pre-vetted by him and as a result only those who could actually fulfil the role were passed through to us to interview, making it a very smooth process.
