We are SESAME. We’re an unusual kind of head-hunting consultancy that likes to work, as we put it, in HD+. In other words, we build brighter, sharper, more focused careers and cultures.

On top of that, we search lateral, finding people who can take on non-linear and diverse roles that will begin to change the way businesses do PR and Marketing Communications – and help them prosper at the same time.

What gives us an extra edge? Every one of us in the SESAME team has worked in PR and we still consult for a handful of clients. And by knowing the industry moment to moment from the inside out, we are – and will remain – completely connected.  

For all these reasons, we believe we are unique in what we do and how we do it, but it’s not what we think that matters.  Let’s hear it from the people that do:

Our purpose is to enrich company culture by democratising it and opening up lateral and diverse opportunities in marketing communications for all types of talent. And by doing so, we give those that deserve it a chance to stand out by capitalising on our connections.

To do this, we actively look for talent that fits with our guiding principles – we’re a bit like a member’s club that way. And like a club, we have active criteria we follow:

  • Embrace all kinds of difference

  • Togetherness & honesty always work better

  • Kindness & manners cost nothing

  • Break the rules for better

  • Fun catches on

We specialise in permanent and long-term fixed contracts across Brand, Corporate, Technology and Healthcare, as well as content, planning and creative roles in the UK, EMEA and North America. 


Emily founded SESAME after 18 years at the business end of agency life, most recently as Head of Brand at Porter Novelli. This new venture means that she can use her PR network in a different way, marrying up brilliant, non-traditional people with equally brilliant companies, in addition to consulting on culture where she’s needed. 

Marigold, Partner, specialises in brand marketing, having held senior roles at Freuds and Golin. She is a passionate advocate of flexible working and, as a mum, enjoys helping parents find roles that allow them to balance a rewarding career and home life within our progressive client base.

Liz, Partner, comes from a consumer and healthcare PR background. She most recently worked at Porter Novelli, via Weber Shandwick, Ogilvy and Ketchum. Liz’s passion for people means she has an unerring eye for emerging talent and understands the importance of a rich workforce made up of people with diverse backgrounds and mindsets.

Rosie, Head of Communications, not only helps keep the SESAME show on the road, but oversees marketing.  She also loves putting to good use her six years’ experience leading teams at agencies such as Ketchum, Kindred and Porter Novelli by supporting our mid-level talent with confidence coaching and interview prep.
