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!”

“I found the fixed fee service to be the best value and an excellent option for my needs. Liz and her team were very efficient and professional and came up trumps with a great short list of potential applicants. We have since taken on a fantastic freelancer who has turned out to be exactly what I was looking for, and I would certainly use Liz again and recommend to anyone.”
