Marcus's Vacancies

An Interview With Marcus

We took the opportunity to sit down with Marcus, and chat about all things Vertex and beyond, here's what he had to say.

VR: So how long have you been working at Vertex?

MT: Seems like yesterday…

VR: What’s your area of expertise, (within Vertex)?

MT: The stuff I love - Mid management to board level recruitment projects across the FMCG sales and marketing space. Team structures / remuneration and market analysis / appraisals. Oh yes and the whole internal leadership / flag flying / management bit!

VR: What can you offer a client or candidate, that nobody else can?

MT: Guaranteed reservations and the best tables... seriously though, an unbiased holistic view of the industry (from company culture through to salary / structural benchmarking), tips for success and examples of failure (and how to avoid it..)

VR: That’s enough boring stuff, let’s get personal….
Describe yourself in 3 words?

MT:) Me, Me , Me… (laughs…)

VR: Who is your celebrity idol, living or dead and why?

MT: Peter Stringfellow... because of what you’re thinking right now… go figure!

VR: If you won a £1million tomorrow, what would you do?

MT: Try to pay off some of the mortgage… come on £1million….? What is this, the 70’s?!!

VR: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?

MT: Katie Price! (laughs..)

VR: You’re doing a pub quiz, what’s your best subject?

MT: Me (as above…. ) are we done now!?..

So there you have it, if you want to chat more with Marcus then get in contact today.
