Recruiting the best marketing leaders since 2002

Contact Our Experts

The world of sales and marketing has evolved. Marketing experts are fundamental to drive business growth and to stand out from the crowd, but it a competitive market and therefore brings many recruitment challenges. Marketing experts come from different backgrounds, have varied industry knowledge and experiences at different stages of a companies life cycle, which can make recruitment difficult and time-consuming, which is where working with a specialist marketing executive search consultancy like Hanson Search comes in.

As experts in marketing executive search and recruitment for agencies and in-house teams, we recruit the best marketing talent from the CMO to building out an integrated marketing function from digital marketing – SEO, PPC, product and brand marketing and more traditional forms of marketing.

We run executive searches and recruit for a range of brands and businesses globally, from start-ups, scale-ups, and SMEs right up to big international companies specialising in ecommerce, retail, tech, financial and more across both B2B and B2C, including a number of SaaS businesses. We also headhunt for investors looking to build marketing teams from scratch, from Digital Marketing Managers, Product Marketing Manager, Head of Communications to Chief Marketing Officers.

Since launching Hanson Search in 2002, our specialist marketing recruitment and executive search practice has built a global network of talented professionals, and these are nurtured through regularly attending industry events such as Cannes Lions or running our own event's calendar. We are known for our network, assessing and recruiting high calibre marketing talent and our advice on the marketing landscape.

Over the years our expertise as a proficient marketing headhunter and executive search agency has been recognised by the industry. We've been honoured to be named by the Marketing and Digital Recruitment Awards as:
