Our team has vast experience in the recruitment industry and in particular, the accountancy and finance, executive appointments and office support sectors. The team cover the Suffolk, Essex and Kent areas.

Geoff Collings

Geoff is the co-founder and Director of Mackenzie King, having started the company in 2011 with the aim of bringing a more personal approach to professional recruitment.

Gaining 14 years’ worth of recruitment experience at the largest specialist recruiter in the UK, he quickly rose through the ranks to become a Director for the Accountancy & Finance arm. During his career he has enjoyed particular success in the Kent and London markets, looking after teams of 60 people. Geoff has recruited at all levels from Accounts Clerks through to Board Level Finance Directors.

Away from work Geoff is a huge fan of most sports, with rugby being his particular passion, and he can often be found at Twickenham Stadium. His main hobby is learning as much as he can about Fine Wines, including the obligatory sampling of “several” vintages. As you can see from his picture Geoff has a lifelong passion for hair care products!
