Mark is unlike any other recruiter I’ve met or worked with before because he really took the time to get to know me. He is an active listener and a sincerely kind and empathetic person. He always puts his candidates’ interests ahead of his own to ensure the placement and fit of the role extends beyond the work description and onto the cultural and personal fit as well. The roles Mark discussed with me were only ones that were relevant and he never pushed anything that didn’t fit my criteria. Mark is knowledgeable about the companies he recruits for – he knows how their businesses work, he knows the roles, the people, the culture and he can therefore provide sound advice and answer candidate questions with confidence. He is quick to follow up, easily reachable and his communication is steady without feeling overbearing, like I’ve felt with other recruiters. Before my interviews Mark would always send me a ‘good luck’ email and then call to chat about them after – always positive, always reassuring and not willing to give up until his candidates are happy. I have recommended Mark to many of my friends, and will continue to do so, because with Mark there is no hidden agenda, and he genuinely helped me find a role that is a fantastic fit. Thank you Mark!

Nick and Charlie were wonderful to deal with - very responsive, friendly, helpful and fast-moving!
Candidate - Senior Copywriter
I owe a lot to Nick and Charlie for my career development. By trusting them to make sound judgment on agencies that would be a best fit for my experience, it ended up with a job offer from a fantastic London agency!
Both "fought my corner" in submitting my CV to agencies they believed to be a good fit for my experience following in-depth conversations. They communicated updates on my application efficiently and clearly. Forever grateful for their support in where I've ended up in 2023!
Candidate - Account Manager
Mark Darlington has been an impeccable recruiter from start to finish. I have approached a lot of recruiters in the past few months who have given me roles I am unsuited for (despite initial calls about my experience/needs) and/or who have been unwilling to engage in helping me. But none have had the care and attention Mark had in sending me roles and helping me through the recruitment process. If the other employees at Stonor behave/perform like Mark then I wholly recommend this company.
