What our clients say ...

First class. Astonishing detail. A genuine partner.


I would be happy to recommend Hutton House Recruitment. Search reports clearly displayed Mary's desire to ensure she identified candidates that could truly add value to the business, deliver extra skills and fit the business culture. Mary gave candid guidance and advice to us to ensure this recruitment was a success on what was a very specific recruitment search. Prior to engaging with Mary we had found this a difficult search, but Mary was able to present three final stage candidates to the business which were all hireable, with the potential to fit elsewhere into the business if the opportunity were available. Mary Stretch is very committed and managed the entire process very effectively. She is flexible to the client's needs and gave us the confidence that once you have given her the search, she will make sure that she closes it to your satisfaction.

Mary was a genuine partner for me and my colleagues during our time at Disney. Mary is an insightful recruiter, a clear communicator and was a great advocate for the business and our vision. She has an outstanding eye (and ear) for marketing and sales talent. If you have recruitment needs, I strongly recommend that you talk to her.

Hutton House represents a truly different and truly effective approach to recruiting top talent. L'Oréal has worked with many of the UK's leading large scale marketing recruitment agencies. The small scale and personal approach of Hutton House allows Mary to be much more effective in identifying and engaging with hard to reach and talented individuals.

Mary's network and selective approach allows her to be credible with very demanding, high potential individuals. The significant time she invests in getting to know and understand clients makes her influential and effective in challenging perceptions of employer brands and convincing top calibre people to consider the opportunities she is representing.

The agency has excellent integrity and Mary does not hesitate to give incisive advice safeguarding the interests of both client and candidate through the recruitment process. Hutton House has delivered on the promise many agencies make to be a true recruitment partner and proved that the most important factor in recruitment is quality not quantity.

I was looking for a specialist recruiter to assist me with a senior digital role for Warner Music International. Mary was successful in finding us the perfect candidate for this role who has already proven himself to be a key contributor to the success of Warner Music's digital transformation going forward.
