As one of Woodrow Mercer's senior statesmen, Matt has been working exclusively within Testing recruitment since 2006. Outside of work you will most likely find Matt on the badminton court swatting away a shuttle or two, or following the trials and tribulations of his beloved Aston Villa. He is an eternal optimist!​


Dai Garrett

Associate Director

Dai joined the London office in September 2018 to set up a new Technology function: DevOps and Cloud.

Candidate Testimonials

In my opinion, Woodrow Mercer is the only adequate recruitment agency dealing with Sitecore currently on the market, with agents who do understand what both clients and candidates are actually looking for.  I have recently come across numerous zombie-agencies either working too inertly and passively or they were simply a useless bunch of CV-harvesters and time-wasters.  Asking a Sitecore expert whether he or she knows C# or can create pages with ASP.NET tells me that these people are miles away from understanding the platform and their internals - that should go without saying.

Unlikely, Damien from WM is drilled in Sitecore, constantly organising and sponsoring user groups, know plenty of useful hints and insights about the Sitecore scene.  So, I'd better keep working wit him!

Martin Miles

Sitecore MVP

As a contractor, I've had my fair share of terrible experiences with recruitment agents.  Pestering me constantly, fishing for leads, sending me totally inappropriate opportunities and just generally wasting my time.  Alex does none of these things.  She is utterly professional, courteous and does her job incredibly well and I have no intention in highly recommending Alex to anyone looking for a great recruiter.

Jason Georgiades

Sitecore Consultant

I felt that Damien listened to what I wanted and was a good go between employer and employee to help both parties get what they want.  I would work with him again.

Phil Gainely

Sitecore Architect

Few recruiters take the time to understand their clients, potential clients, the technologies that they cover and the detailed nature of the roles that they recruit for.  Alex understands her CMS and Sitecore niche extremely well and often attends related technical and marketing user groups.  She has a good feel for the level of the ability of potential candidates and as such can make sure that only suitable candidates are put forward for available roles.  She has built a good rapport with both clients and candidates and is well respected in the industry within which she operates.  I would definitely recommend Alex to any organisation seeking to fill a role or to any potential candidates.

Mobeen Anwar

Sitecore Consultant

When searching for a role, Damien helped me to secure a perfect match, by taking the time to understand what I was looking for and conversely what the client needed.  Damien took the time to understand what I was looking for and conversely what the client needed.  Damien took the time to understand the process and guide through it.  I would certainly recommend Damien to anyone looking for a new role, or looking to fill one.
