Meet the Team: Toni Hatton

April 2024

I decided I wanted to work in recruitment when…

I realised my strengths lie in building and maintaining connections. I’ve loved working in people focused roles since my first ever job as a Sales Assistant in the Co-op when I was 16. Since then, I’ve worked in various sales, marketing and events jobs which have revolved heavily around relationship building and networking. For me, a role in recruitment, especially with a specific focus on client engagement, was a natural next step in my career.

I joined the MM Search team…

Because of the USP of MM Search and how differently they do things compared to other agencies in the recruitment industry. It’s a really exciting and dynamic team to be part of which was evident from my very first interview.

The first thing I do when I get to the office is…

Coffee & catch up! I find the best way to start my day is to sit with a coffee and catch up with my colleagues, emails, and any prominent industry news. I can then make a clear plan for the day ahead.

My working day involves…

Connecting with existing and potential clients and building relationships.

My greatest professional strength is…

My ability to creative problem solve! I’m great at coming up with solutions to problems or thinking on the spot in the midst of a tricky situation.

The highlight of my career so far was when…

I’ve only been with the company for a couple of weeks’ but the highlight so far has been our quarterly event where I really got to know the team, discuss the future of MM Search and all of the exciting things which are in the pipeline.

The thing I love most about working with the MM Search team…

The energy and enthusiasm in the office! Derek and Ken have built a great team here at MM Search which was evident from my very first interview – everyone is so passionate about what they do.

When I’m not in work, you’ll usually find me…
Doing something arty like painting with my friends (usually with a prosecco in hand). Or going on long adventure walks in the highlands.

My motto is…
Stay positive and optimistic no matter what! The good days always outweigh the not so good. 

My goals for 2024…
Professionally: Continuously top my personal bests at work.

Personally: Buy my first home!

My secret skill/party piece is…
I’m amazing at planning and organising events – birthday parties, fashion shows, hen do’s, you name it!

What was the last gift you gave someone?
I gifted my twin sister a spa day for getting a promotion in her job.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

I would be a dolphin. I’ve always loved being in the water and I love the sea! Dolphins are known for their kind and cheeky nature which I feel reflects my personality.

How would your best friend describe you in 3 words?

Adventurous, high-energy and kind.

How would your colleagues describe you in 3 words?
Hard-working, collaborative and positive.
