Who Are clockworkTalent?
If you have got this far, perhaps you would like to know a little more about who we are and where we have come from.
As employers in digital marketing, we were being consistently frustrated by the lack of depth and understanding shown by generalist recruiters in our industry. They would regularly demonstrate an inability to accurately shortlist candidates, wasting both our time and that of the job seekers. So we decided to set up clockworkTalent; a recruitment agency which offers a professional recruitment service and truly understands the digital landscape; ensuring no other employers had to endure our frustration.
Small but mighty, our team of specialist recruiters are fully dedicated to serving the Digital Marketing industry. Each day we live and breathe Digital – with a matching level passion for people as for all digital jobs – SEO, PPC, Social Media, Content Marketing, Online PR, Analytics, Web Design, Sales, Development and more. We hire every role of all seniority, but only in the online industry!
What we do is match a job to a candidate, and a candidate to a job. We specialise in headhunting and selecting. We don’t send ten candidates to one brief, we make sure the ones we do send are appropriate and fit the bill.
Candidates like us because we talk their language and understand their needs. Employers like us because we don’t waste their time and we help them to get where they want quicker. We often spend over an hour on the phone to employers and job seekers just to know them that little bit better.
We are so confident in our ability that we offer guarantees which are unmatched in the industry.
Meet The Team.
Natasha Woodford, Managing Director
With an exemplary nearly 20-year track record of recruitment and building long lasting relationships with both employers and job seekers, Natasha has previously been an Executive Search Consultant (Headhunter) for 16 years.

Natasha’s natural passion works well in providing a service which is ultimately right for her clients; it enhances her candidate management and enables the success of her delivery. With siblings in leadership positions of Digital and Search Marketing businesses (Jason Woodford, CEO of SiteVisibility, and Alex Woodford, Client Partner at Essence); bringing Natasha’s recruitment service specialism to the Digital arena was inevitable.
