Success Stories: Marlowe X Secure & Recruit

Nov 14, 2023

Marlowe Fire & Security Group is the fire life safety and security specialist division of Marlowe plc.  They are the UK’s fastest growing consortium of fire life safety and security service providers. Operating 24/7, across the whole of the UK, they work with clients of all sizes to provide end-to-end fire and security solutions across all sectors to ensure safety, security and compliance.


Secure & Recruit started working with Marlowe Fire & Security in November 2018, a mere 1 month after we founded the business. Marlowe were Secure & Recruit’s first national client, and we’ve worked with them ever since. We were quickly able to demonstrate our expertise and market reach within the fire and security sector. On our first recruitment assignment with Marlowe, they had 20 positions to recruit for and multiple recruitment agencies had been briefed on the roles. Secure & Recruit successfully filled 16 of the 20 positions available, and 2 were filled internally.


Secure & Recruit’s ability to deliver quality candidates has been proven time and time again. For one particular round of hiring, Marlowe put an exclusive agreement in place with another agency; however, they received minimal CVs from that particular firm. They then approached Secure & Recruit to help; we successfully filled 20 vacancies for them in the space of just three weeks. In total, we’ve now placed over 100 fire and security professionals with Marlowe since 2018. A number of those engineers have since been promoted multiple times to become regional service managers.


Secure & Recruit has maintained strong working relationships with the team at Marlowe, in particular with the regional managers. We understand the company, what it’s trying to achieve and have insight into their culture. This means we can thoroughly vet any candidates for the right fit before shortlisting them for interview. It’s a relationship that has gone from strength to strength, with Secure & Recruit one of Marlowe’s trusted go-to recruitment providers for fire and security professionals.

Both Danielle and Sophie are friendly recruiters who listen to what the business needs are, and understand what skill sets the company is looking for. They speak to candidates to ensure our requirements are matched before the candidates are sent across for us to review. They always send out a detailed summary of each candidate and are not afraid to pick up the phone to speak to us. Marlowe Fire & Security looks forward to continuing our working relationship for many years to come.
