Properly considered recruitment.
Director and Founder
Mark founded the MWek Company after an earlier career in the Probation Service spent rehabilitating the most dangerous offenders in the UK (a natural segue into recruitment). He is building the MWek Company based on the principles of being kind to everyone whom we work with and by being experts in our market, able to find talent others simply can’t. MWek are aiming to be the go-to business globally for FinTech and Technology firms and we are enjoying the ride. Probably the quietest personality in the team.

I spent a decade working for a leading global IT recruitment firm specialising in temporary recruitment. Initially focussed on Financial Services but more recently on the eCommerce, Online & Retail space. For me It’s about working with a client as a strategic partner. Throughout my career the top pain I’ve heard from customers was staffing firms didn’t understand their business and so they would struggle to attract and retain top talent. I want to work with a customer to understand their business so I can partner with them taking a consultative approach in order to provide proactive workforce planning and delivery. Roles I cover - Data - Big Data, Date Science, Database Engineers etc.. Cloud & DevOps - AWS, Azure, GCP etc... Core Infrastructure - Servers, Virtualisation, Storage, Backup etc... Network & Cyber Security
Prior to recruitment Iman was a music artist, writing, recording and touring her own material. She has also written songs that have entered the charts and recorded with International pop stars. However, she soon decided all of that simply wasn’t cool enough and recruitment came knocking. Since joining recruitment Iman has built a credible network within the SaaS Financial Services and Public sector space and really enjoys the human element that considered recruiting entails. It’s all about the longer term approach for her, every placement she has made has been an incredibly rewarding experience and staying in close touch with her candidates and developing relationships is something she prides herself on
