I am MacStaff founding consultant and Managing Director, Anthony McCormack. I have learned a lot through almost 20 years of experience in the recruitment industry. I have witnessed much industry change in this time and a variety of different styles and standards in my industry peer group. Some may say the good, the bad and the ugly! As a consultant, whilst I am proud of my tenure and track record, I am always striving to hone my own skills, and indeed character, to distinguish myself in a competitive market. As a Manager I am always seeking to identify and unlock the potential of my employees, ensure they thrive, and in turn help customers do the same.
I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 1996 and, in truth, ‘fell’ in to recruitment which has been my passion and profession ever since. I cut my teeth in driving and industrial recruitment with Securicor recruitment services now Randstad, where I learned to work hard, act quickly and give great customer service. I moved for career development in 1999 into specialist recruitment with Synergy, majoring in Facilities Management, where I developed skills in contingency permanent recruitment and executive search.
From 2002 – 2016 I worked with Hays PLC where I honed my leadership skills; fulfilling roles of Business Manager, Division Manager & Branch Manager, without ever leaving the ‘sharp-end’ as a recruitment consultant, successfully filling jobs and placing candidates which is in my mind the ‘magic’ in recruitment.
Founding MacStaff in 2016 is the fulfilment of a dream I have held over the years, and opens the next chapter of my career. As I continue my recruitment adventure, I am driven to make great things happen through provision of first class recruitment solutions and look forward to sharing the journey with professionals such as yourself going forward.
At MacStaff we are committed to our client and candidate partners and are proud to deliver first class recruitment services. We appreciate that this can only be consistently delivered by first class consultants with industry expertise who share our values and level of commitment. Therefore, as you may expect, we have a rigorous selection process, only engage experienced consultants and typically utilise consultants who we already know and trust.
We are able to back up our commitment to consistently great service, and more importantly great results, with excellent client and candidate testimonials. The culture of MacStaff, conceived and demonstrated daily by founder Anthony McCormack, is one of building long term partnerships based on earning loyalty and trust. We believe that there is no shortcut to such robust partnerships which are built, step-by-step, by working diligently, honestly and enthusiastically on each client and job individually.
I highly recommend Anthony if you are looking for a job in construction. I didn't have the chance to realise that I was looking for a job, since Anthony found me one immediately. The day after our first meeting he managed to get my first and last interview, as I got the job. The post matched perfectly with what I wanted.
