We originally started as a recruitment agency in 2013 providing UHNW families with a bespoke recruitment service, sourcing candidates internationally and providing a service targeted at the most prestigious properties around the world.
Our team are innovators and through our years as an agency we constantly developed internal systems to streamline our processes in order to provide our clients and candidates with a better service.
At the beginning of 2018 we began developing an app-platform to further improve the on-boarding of candidates and allow instant communication with them to discuss opportunities we had. This worked so well that we felt the employers would benefit from accessing such a platform, and so the Marlin App was born. It really was a ‘eureka moment’!
We’ve been able to constantly develop the app using the feedback from all our users. Job seekers, who are delighted with the opportunity to now engage directly with hiring employers, love the ease of registering particularly in a time-sensitive hospitality market. And employers are now able to arrange interviews within hours not days, reaching out to available hospitality candidates easily and quickly.
The overwhelming interest and support we’ve had just proves there’s a need to change recruitment and embrace the advances in technology – but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve! If you are technologically-minded or have experience providing excellent customer service, we’d love to hear from you.
Our mission is to sign up more hospitality job seekers to the app globally, so that more hotel and restaurant employers can enjoy easy recruitment with the Marlin App.
A born entrepreneur with a thirst for innovation, Demos has merged his IT skills with his experience in luxury hospitality and recruitment to develop the ultimate disruptor to the industry.
He’s an upbeat and enthusiastic leader and when he’s not busy coding, web designing or blogging, be sure that he’s planning the next great thing.
Once a social media novice, Nargis now speaks in hashtags, creating new ways to build and promote the Marlin brand and utilising her expertise in sales, business development and customer relations to her advantage.
She’s a busy mum, a Great British Bake-Off contender and a “glass-half-full” kind of girl.
By day she heads up Operations, and with her strong background in recruitment and security, she’s the first point-of-call for our candidates.
Out of the office, Steph’s normally venturing the wilderness, scaling mountains or exploring the outrageous, and she’s on a mission to get everyone to give blood and recycle.
Simon is passionate about seeking out innovative startups and helping them grow, and carries a wealth of experience. We’re proud to have him on our team, and welcome his energy and motivation.
She’s a seasoned Chief Marketing Officer, experienced in helping early stage tech companies launch and grow. Amber may be our newest recruit, but her enthusiasm and energy is infectious.
Bring transparent is at the heart of what we do. It's applied to everything. It's a refreshing way to run a startup and I recommend all businesses to adopt the same strategy.
Do you know where your product or service is positioned? I didn't realise just how important positioning is until I read a great book about it and implemented the advice. We looked at everything and made a few changes too.
