The company will continue to empower its most important asset – its people – by giving them a stake in its future. Our journey began 14 years ago. It is far from finished. If you believe you have the ambition, drive and commitment to success that we are looking for, we want to hear from you.

Amanda Simpson

Senior Consultant at MRA Search, London

I joined MRA after meeting Warren and Paul. I was immediately impressed by their vision for the company, their work ethic and how humble they both were. They had clear goals for the company and for me as an individual. After 11 years at MRA, I am glad to say these goals have been reached and surpassed.

Kate Spillane

Senior Consultant at MRA Search, London

I joined MRA as a graduate in August 2021. Having recently been promoted to consultant, it has been a fantastic year working in a supportive, collaborative environment. Working with highly talented individuals and with MRA’s hard-working values, MRA has given me the platform to be a successful recruiter. It’s a great culture where hard-working individuals are truly rewarded. There is also an excellent social side to MRA. Every Friday after work we have drinks in the office which is a great way to spend time with colleagues you don’t often see.
