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.


I just started a new job as Head of Logistics Development at Morrison’s.

In the search I spoke to many headhunters and finding a good one was like hitting a gold mine. Many did not respond at all, some just wanted a face to face and I never heard back from them.... Then I met David Pike the owner and it all changed.

Let me give a big shout out to David's senior headhunter Clinton Hasenberg and his executive search team at Jefferson Maguire: they have been very responsive and proactive with approaching companies on my behalf and kept me in the loop every step of the way.

Without them, I would not have made the connection to Morrison’s.

Should you need reliable headhunters I suggest you make contact with Jefferson Maguire right away.

“Following our recent recruitment campaigns to select and appoint a number of General Store Managers and Cluster Coaches, I would like to thank Jefferson Maguire very much for the excellent help they gave me in these matters.

When dealing with recruitment consultants, one often feels a sense of concern – will they understand your industry, will they understand your firm and its culture, will they provide reasonable candidates, and most of all will the charges be too high?

I can honestly say that they took considerable pains to make sure that the first three of these were not an issue. They spent a great deal of time trying to find out more about Asda and precisely what we were looking for and, demonstrably provided us with a range of candidates. As to the charges, their charging structure based on success fee only is far more reasonable than most head hunters”.
