Lead Consultant

Martin Hartshorne


Martin has been with Certain Advantage since May 2011 and in recruitment since 2010. He started his career in IT recruitment, before realising he preferred the diversity of Professional Services. Over time he’s built up a huge number of candidate relations in Marketing and now specialised in roles around paid search, growth marketing, acquisition and PR and Comms.. 

His expertise allows him to provide really relevant recruitment information to his clients – from salary and market insights to competitor and geographical challenges. He knows the impact of finding the perfect fit for a team and is often a sounding board for many clients at the very starting point of hiring. 

Before falling into recruitment, Martin previously studied music and sound engineering, and is determined to write a best-selling song one day. He also went to circus school when he was younger, and can juggle various objects in different combinations, though unfortunately could never ride a unicycle.
