...a boutique marketing recruitment specialist;

Here is a specialist boutique consultancy / agency with a successful track record for clients in consumer and industrial segments, especially Sydney.  It's owned and run by Philip Brown, marketer turned tenacious recruiter with an excellent placement record.  He's been specialising in recruiting marketers for 20 years with the advantage of a prior "real world" life as a marketer covering FMCG, tourism, QSR and advertising.  His focus is simple...giving clients what they want.


Points of difference;

Yes, there are plenty of recruiters saying they're specialists in marketing but most are agency "generalists" and don't have that disciplined experience as a marketer in their background. 


Few, if any, offer this compelling combination;

  1. "My main point of difference is the substantial 'real world' marketing experience working on successful brands before making the change to the recruitment industry years ago." This combination results in more accurate assessments of candidates' abilities as well as a greater understanding of clients' requirements.
  2. I operate as a "one man band" and operate with honesty, integrity and clear communication.
  3. I produce quality results...a strong track record of success based on being a specialist; a consultative attitude, long experience, tenacity, networks, flexibility, common sense and intelligence.


Market segments; 

Regular search and recruitment projects cover consumer (FMCG, durables, media, services, entertainment, telco and IT) as well as industrial and B2B sectors.  All projects include an emphasis on pure search and networking as opposed to just placing ads and hoping for the best.



...recruited for on a regular basis range from brand, product and category managers to marketing managers / directors as well as analysts, graphic designers, communications and PR execs for consumer and industrial markets.  Most have backgrounds in FMCG or durables.


Sales execs.

...roles include analysts, territory reps., account managers, state and national sales managers, category managers, trade marketers, BDM's, etc. in consumer or industrial segments; search and standard recruitment.



...value the advantage of partnering with a boutique agency – a consultant specialising in this field but with substantial "real world" marketing experience.  I operate with a consultative approach, strong candidate networks, efficiencies in search / recruitment methods as well as the all-important point of sourcing candidates who accurately fit clients’ briefs.  All processes are based on honesty, ethics, tenacity and regular communication. 



...value being treated with courtesy, respect, empathy and responsiveness through all processes. Most candidates have at least a few years' specialist marketing experience to at least brand or product management level.  It's significantly rewarding that many recruitment assignments come from clients who were once candidates!
