Mark Shortall Managing Director
I've specialised in recruiting recruiters and HR talent for high-growth tech companies since starting my career in 2007.
In 2014, I joined Facebook as their first R4R & HR Recruiter in Europe, helping them scale their EMEA People team from 30 to 200+ in 3 years.
I left to launch Rework in 2017 and I've been incredibly lucky to partner with some of the most high profile tech start-ups and scale-ups in Europe.
Melissa Bachman Director, Leadership Search
I’ve spent the bulk of my career scaling high-growth companies. It’s been a wild ride and tremendously rewarding. I helped e-commerce trendsetter Gilt Groupe grow from 100 to 800+ in 2 years. In 2011 I joined Amazon in New York City — in those early days, we sat at rented folding tables overlooking MOMA’s backlot in midtown. I led the fashion recruiting team through lots of change and big launches, later becoming a first-time expat in Luxembourg. Amazon EU showed me next-level scale in recruiting ops, supporting 5000+ hires annually. More recently, I led Miro’s non-tech team in Amsterdam, launching new hubs and scaling the team to deliver 3x growth.
Today I head the search practice for Rework, building leadership teams for tech scale-ups. It’s an exciting time for EU tech, and I’m here for all of it. Reach out if you’d like to connect and talk shop.

Coming from a technical background, I’ve merged my knowledge and recruitment experience, which allowed me to leverage my passion for building and nurturing relationships while remaining challenged to find that perfect candidate in today's competitive market.

George Lees Talent Partner, Checkout.com
I’ve been in recruitment for almost ten years, and I’ve just returned home from Japan after three years. I specialised in recruiting bi-lingual HR talent, and the Japanese market is very unique! I’ll have to make sure I adjust quickly and don’t offend anyone in Europe :)
Outside of work, I’m a cycling obsessive and like to race long-distance events. I’ve just moved to the peak district, and I plan to make the most of the beautiful countryside and remote life. So if you want to connect to talk bikes, katsu, or even recruiting, hit me up!
Reach out and we'd love to take you through our plans.
