Martin has been pivotal in bringing in fantastic developers to our engineering team. Extremely focussed, hard working, intelligent and highly personable, I am proud to have had Martin as the first contact many would have with Synthace. He is a real pleasure to work with- a really genuine person and a consummate professional.

Thanks to his wealth of experience, Martin was able to transform our recruiting pipeline: job specs, headhunting, recruiter screening, candidate screening and designing and managing the interview process.On top of that he was really great to work with - hard-working, pleasant, professional and flexible. As a point of first contact with potential employees he was a huge asset and really helped us get some great people with his charm, intelligence and straightforward presentation. I thoroughly recommend Martin’s recruitment services, they don’t come any better.

Martin is one of the best recruiters I’ve ever worked with. He reached out to me and started a conversation about an interesting company in London. I get many emails but could tell Martin’s friendly communication style stood out. He explained the technology in a very clear way and gave a good overview of the teams at the company and their responsibilities. I had the feeling I was talking to someone involved in building the product. Throughout the interview process, Martin was very responsive and proactively kept me up to date on every step. I ended up joining the company. Martin took me out for dinner afterwards and we had a great chat. We’re still in contact. One of the best experiences with recruiters I’ve ever had.

When I began speaking to Martin it was clear that Martin was interested in understanding what was the right role for myself. During our first call together we spoke at length about my past experiences and what drives my decision making when it came to deciding on my future job. Martin used what he had learned from our calls together to help me find a company and position that suited me. As well as helping me find the right company Martin worked with me to ensure my application was perfect to ensure I had the best possible chance to be successful in the recruitment process.

I got my dream job within one week of contacting Martin Gallagher. He is professional, responsive, and above all, human. He calls you to keep you moving forward when life gets busy on your end. He understands what you’re really looking for in a job. He is a real person, and a real professional with a lot of real interesting people in his address book. Work with him - he’ll put you in touch with the people you want to meet...and then he’ll call you up and see how you’re doing. An HR class act.

Martin helped me build my team from scratch. We urgently needed a variety of skills from UI designer to mobile developers, as well as some functional programmers. Martin understood what I needed and started producing great candidates for me within a couple of days. I went on to hire 4 candidates over the next 4 weeks, and now have a top of the range team to accelerate my start-up. Martin did a great job for me. I will use him again and there is no doubt I would vouch for his services - definitely the best recruiter I have ever worked with!

Martin is one of those rare breeds you seldomly come across in recruitment. His honesty and integrity are unquestionable and his understanding of what we are looking for is unsurpassable. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
— CTO, Digital Agency, London
Martin is a very capable recruiter. I was contacted by him for a proposal that was not very appealing, I told him my preferences and he contacted me again at me at the right time with the right offer. The whole interview and hiring process was smooth and pleasant. He was always available for advice. He gave good hints for dealing with the interviews and getting the job.

Martin understood, after our first call, what kind of job position I was willing to find and just offered me a few positions, all of them matching my team culture, technology, working life and economical expectations. Because he understands the technical specifications of the companies and candidates, unlike many other recruiters, I found I didn’t have to explain to him the subtleties of which jobs would be right for me. He clearly understood this - which was refreshing!. Due to his specialization in Golang, he introduced me, only after two weeks, one of his clients, who was looking for Golang Software Engineers to work with a distributed team, hence we had a match straight away. I think that he’s a very good professional who understand both sides of the job market.

I have used Nuria’s services on a retained basis for a number of key assignments over the last 12 years. I have found her very easy to work with and she has always given me a great service and the confidence that she is going to deliver.
— Country Manager, Leading Pharma Company
Martin and Nuria are a great team. The skills I need in my team are very rare. Martin and Nuria understand what I need and have always produced great candidates for me. Also, I like how they work - extremely efficient, timely and courteous. No hounding or unnecessary pressure. They understand that sometimes ‘the day job’ can take over but at no time do I feel pressured by them. That’s why I return to them when I need to hire.
— Team Leader, Switzerland
Martin placed me in my current role. I was extremely happy with how we worked together. He was very informative, supportive and made sure I was well prepared at each part of the process.
