At Marcus Webb we believe it’s important to listen and really understand what our clients and candidates need and want. Furthermore, having a good understanding and genuine interest in technology means we have a good grasp of what they actually do!
The company was founded by Marcus O’Donnell in December 2015, an engineering graduate and technology recruiter since 1998 –
“Being successful in recruitment is about gathering useful information and knowing what to do with it. Hence knowledge is the key to success and if we understand then we can help and that ultimately benefits the professionals we work with and the companies who hire them!”
Marcus is a very methodical and diligent professional. He is fully able to give support during all the recruiting phase, with a keen eye to professional details appreciated in niche market industries. His accuracy and commitment with the clients leads the engineer to the desired career development.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Marcus. I would definitely recommend him as a recruiter from both sides, for the business and for people side. He stands out amongst the others because of the dedication/passion in what he does as well as for looking/listening beyond and between the lines.
I had the pleasure working with Marcus and I would recommend him without any hesitation as an excellent recruiter, both on professional level and personal level. What makes Marcus standing out of the crowd is his dedication to his job, his passion and friendliness in every discussion we had. He will look beyond what a CV shows, actually listening to your experience, needs and expectations, and matching those with the ones of the potential employer. It is one of the rare recruiters which actually looks about the development potential you can bring on board and your personality, not only the past experience which could be more or less relevant for the job. Moreover, he will help you with preparation for each stage during recruitment process, always keen to collect feedback about how interviews went, if expectations were met or not and what is next to come. Needless to say, I got my last career change with Marcus's help and if in need again, he will be the first one to approach again.
Great communication, visionary, organised, easy going, good listener, helpful ... and the list can go on and on of how I can describe Marcus. I was working in France for 3 years and decided to move to the UK, Marcus helped me find an excellent opportunity that meets my expectations and corresponds to my engineering profile. He organised all the interviews and provided all the needed input to prepare them, kept contact after every phase even the contract negotiation phase. Marcus didn't stop there, he was also very helpful in the Work permit visa process, moving, looking for rent, .... he was there every step of the way until I got to the UK and started work. I had very pleasant conversations with Marcus, I learned a lot for him and got to where I am thanks to him.
Marcus Webb Associates are one of our selected PSL Recruitment Partners, I have been working with Marcus since joining my company in January 2017 and I immediately found him to be friendly and approachable and very much about recruitment with a personal touch. Marcus will always find out as much as he can about the roles he is recruiting for in order that he can only put forward the best and most suitable candidates – he’s also prepared to throw in the odd wild card too if he comes across a candidate that he feels would be a good match for our business, someone with the right attitude or background. Because Marcus has taken the time to understand our business I know I can trust the candidates he offers. He takes great care in giving detailed background information on all of his candidates (so many other recruitment agents shortcut this part of the process) which gives you the confidence that both clients and candidates alike are provided with that same personal touch.
Marcus helped to successfully recruit a software engineer for me. He spent the time to understand what I needed for the position and the type of personality I required. He was not the usual pushy recruiter nor did he bombard me with CV's that were barely relevant, just well-chosen candidates without all the normal fuss. All in all Marcus helped make a time consuming and difficult process easier. I will certainly be using him and his company again.
Marcus is the best recruiter I have dealt with so far. He perfectly balances being professional and friendly. Personally, this is important because recruitment process becomes discomforting at some stages and you need the recruiter to make you comfortable. Marcus was excellent through the whole process. He was accurate and efficient in communication. Provided good tips for interviews and settlement in the UK. Most importantly, he negotiated fairly in my opinion. I will highly recommend him to anyone with recruitment needs. Good luck Marcus!
Marcus was a great help in my job search, that ended successfully. He is really proactive, easy to talk to and provided great advice, not only about the interviews and recruitment process, but also about other key issues you face when moving to the UK such as accommodation or paperwork. Thanks to him, all the process was perfectly organized and the negotiation was smooth and very positive. A job seeker like me really appreciate his work.
