Liz and Becs worked together for 20 years before launching Moxie and Mettle in June 2017.

(Previously Clifton Parke, Goddard Gadd, Xchangeteam, and Pure Marketing Recruitment).

As Co-Founders, and long-term friends and business partners, we share the same values entirely and absolutely love our jobs, a great combination of course. Please see the team page for more information about the rest of our lovely gang!

We are a friendly, professional, experienced bunch and absolutely committed to finding you great new talent or a brilliant new job. We all enjoy what we do and have great fun doing it!

The words “moxie” and “mettle” mean strength, determination, bravery, boldness, energy, courage and we chose the name because all of us in the team have those characteristics and we enjoy working with like minded people!

As remote and hybrid working patterns continue to become relevant to more and more companies and candidates, we recruit all over the UK and have a huge database of qualified and experienced candidates and opportunities in all locations. 

 Job and career choice is so very important, as is choosing the right candidates and we are truly committed to helping people and businesses find the right match.

Between everyone in the team, we’ve got over 100+ years of experience in recruitment and HR (honestly, we have!) and we place permanent, freelance, contract and temporary candidates and work with clients in Marketing, PR, Digital, Communications, Creative , Social Media and Office roles.

We’ve developed a range of brilliant services for clients where you can benefit from all our expertise, contacts, network and candidate database, all very cost effectively!”

"Moxie and mettle are awesome. The most contact I had was with Sophie who is so friendly and helpful. It was incredible to see how genuinely pleased she was when telling me about my job offer. It was a great experience from start to finish and I’m so pleased that with the help of the Moxie and Mettle team, I have found a job I love."


"I’m extremely happy that I found this role through Moxie and Mettle! The service I’ve received with Moxie & Mettle has been second to none, I’m confident that if my freelance role comes to an end or, I need another role - then I know I’m in safe hands with the Moxie & Mettle team!"


"Moxie & Mettle were simply wonderful during my job search. The representatives at Moxie & Mettle were particularly adept at matching specific opportunities to my skill set. I immediately felt confident that they were not simply trying to offer me every vacancy under their management, but had instead taken a lot of time to understand my requirements and indeed, my background. Moxie & Mettle were also extremely personable. It was an absolute pleasure to speak with them when they called. I wish all of the team there the very best."
