Ruby Magpie is here to save you time and frustration during the recruiting process and to find you the outstanding individual you want.

We don’t employ recruitment consultants to work for us. We are made up of industry experts who have worked in senior managerial positions within marketing, digital, sales and fashion.  We are continuing to grow our industry disciplines.

The agency was set up by Suzanne Cook, ex senior manager from the marketing world.  Frustrated with the lack of high quality, bespoke recruitment services available she moved to create her own and Ruby Magpie was born. Since then, Ruby Magpie has teamed up with ex Sales Director Kate Sheridan to launch a sales division and former fashion Commercial Director Shelly Harris to service end to end recruitment needs for international fashion brands.




Suze Cook


I started my career in Advertising and then much later with Digital Agencies.  I moved to consult for a number of start-ups and e-commerce companies before moving to take on Windows Live Marketing for Microsoft, where I spent 5 years running some of their biggest and most successful product launches for the UK Market.    Following Head of Marketing positions at 118 118 and UKTV, I set up Ruby Magpie. I wanted to create an ethically strong brand where we put people and their careers at the centre of our conversations. I like to form open, ethical and honest relationships with my clients and the talented individuals who we work with - I couldn't be any other way. I care about people and I am passionate about business. I am constantly excited about brands, the marketing world, and ever-evolving marketing mediums. Ruby Magpie’s promise is to deliver the very best talent that UK industry has to offer, to the most forward thinking and high flying corporate clients. 



I have over 19 years’ experience in technical sales and in my more recent positions in Sales Director roles recruiting and training up sales teams within my fields of expertise. Following my Masters in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Leeds University I started my career in sales within the high power capital equipment arena selling Uninterrupted Power Supplies. From there I moved into data centres and IT sales working for  one of the largest supplier of data centres and IT services in Europe. Following a career break to start my family I set up Ruby Magpie with my co-founder Suzanne Cook. We felt there was a need for a change and a move away from bad recruitment consultants and their associated reputation. At Ruby Magpie we want to become an extension of you during your recruitment process, to take the pressure off and let us do the hard work for you..
