What our clients say

Spotlight presented us with some really good Marketers and we spoke to a number of qualified and experienced applicants. We found the perfect match a few weeks later. Would definitely recommend Spotlight Recruitment if you want to move your business forward and get the right people on board.


We used Spotlight alongside another marketing recruitment company to hire a new marketing manager. The person we hired was presented by Spotlight. The difference between Spotlight and the other recruiter was the level of service and how well Spotlight understood our business, culture, personalities and what we were looking for. The candidates presented by spotlight were all exactly what we briefed them for. I could not be happier with the service from Spotlight.
