Meet the Team: Ewen Macphie

August 2022

Business Delivery Executive, Ewen Macphie is one of our newest recruits and his drive, ambition and caring nature mean that he is already an important member of the MM Search family.

I decided I wanted to work in recruitment when…
I spoke to Ken and Derek. My background was in HR but after a couple of chats with Ken and Derek, I was really sold on their plans for MM Search.

I joined the MM Search team…
At the beginning of March 2022.

The first thing I do when I get to the office is…
Head straight for the fancy coffee machine! I’m quite a structured person and I like to start the day by writing a checklist. I’ll pour my brain out onto a page and work out what the priorities are for the day and then go from there.

My working day involves…
Lots of different tasks and responsibilities. In a typical day I will work on resourcing candidates for our most important roles, chat with new prospective candidates and clients and put together shortlist information for our clients. I will also help to schedule interviews and manage candidate offers – and there are always plenty of emails to stay on top of too!

My greatest professional strength is…
My drive and ambition. I have some pretty big goals and I believe I have the drive to achieve them.

The highlight of my career so far was when…
I placed someone in a role within a month of joining the MM Search team. That was a brilliant experience and gave me a real insight into the motivation behind executive search.

The thing I love most about working with the MM Search team is…
It’s like being with family or friends! I love the way everyone interacts and hearing about what everyone has going on in their lives. For example, Euan has just gone through the house buying process and it’s been great hearing about that journey.

When I’m not at work, you’ll usually find me…
Right next to my partner of five years, Britney! We’re pretty much inseparable and we love to find new restaurants and try new things like hillwalking and kayaking.

My motto is…
Make your bed in the morning – it’s important to start the day off right.

My goals for the rest of 2022 are to…
Move up in the company – and do it faster than other people have done it!

My secret skill/party piece is…
I’m a big gamer and I played in a few tournaments when I was younger – I was very good at FIFA once upon a time!

What was the last gift you gave someone?
I got my dad tickets for The Stand Comedy Club in Glasgow for Father’s Day so I’m looking forward to an evening out with him and my family.

If you were an animal, what would you be?
A wolf, they are very family-oriented animals and they stick together and look after each other. I always think that if I’m performing well, the people around you do well too and vice versa.

How would your best friend describe you in 3 words?
Intelligent, ambitious, and caring.

How would your colleagues describe you in three words?
Ambitious, honest, and determined.
