The Unicorn team are experienced recruiters with specialist knowledge of PR, Corporate Communications and Investor Relations. Unicorn consultants work closely together on all assignments, so that employers have access to each team member’s network, and candidates will be made aware of all the roles that are relevant to their skills and experience.
The Unicorn team also work closely with their colleagues at Taylor Bennett, meaning that as candidates reach a more senior point in their careers, they can be introduced to researchers and consultants elsewhere in the Taylor Bennett Group, putting them on the radar for senior FTSE 100 and international in-house positions.
Unicorn Jobs was founded in 2007 by Heather McGregor as a sister company to Taylor Bennett, the executive search business she joined in 2000, and of which she is now principal shareholder. Unicorn complements Taylor Bennett by filling mid level roles. Heather continues to be involved in the development of the company in addition to her work as a director of Taylor Bennett. She is also an experienced journalist and broadcaster, and regularly contributes to national newspapers, magazines, radio and television programmes, including the Mrs Moneypenny column in the Financial Times and ‘SuperScrimpers’ for Channel 4.
