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.

“BP Retail embarked on a major resturcturing in 2003 involving a significant recruitment drive. Jefferson Maguire managed and co-ordinated the search campaign. We are very satisfied with their professionalism as well as their level of customer care. In particular, they impressed us with their attention to detail and her quick grasp of our specific requirements. Throughout the campaign we were impressed with the quality of the candidates they put forward; the speed with which they presented the candidates; their organisation and co-ordination of interviews and their outstanding follow-up and administration surrounding the actual joining of the successful candidate.”

“Jefferson Maguire have recently helped to fill a key position within The Virgin Cosmetics Company in the form of a Brand Communications Director. They have provided an excellent service, delivering potential candidates within agreed and timely deadlines, offering a high degree of confidentiality and have met the specification of our briefs exactly.

They provided a high calibre of candidates to select from who had varied positions, salaries and backgrounds, enabling us to benchmark candidates effectively.

Most importantly they really got behind the company ethos and personalities to provide us with a candidate who would not only be able to do the job but would also be able to fit in and add to the culture of the company”.
