We are delighted to have advised Marlin Green Limited on their sale to K2 Partnering Solutions.

Marlin Green is an award-winning international recruitment agency, with offices in London and Düsseldorf, that provides specialist pan-European contract IT recruitment solutions across SAP, Business Intelligence, and Big Data. 

Recognising our extensive experience across the recruitment sector, the shareholders of Marlin Green appointed us to manage a sale of the business and find the right strategic partner to support the management team’s ambitious international growth plans. 

Our team worked closely with the shareholders through a detailed preparatory phase to ensure the business was expertly positioned and prepared for a sales process. 

We supported the team through Covid, acting as a sounding board, providing up to date sector feedback and advising on right time to go to market. 

Having undertaken vendor commercial and financial diligence we were able to drive certainty in offers during a changing market landscape. 

The sale to K2 Partnering Solutions seamlessly brings the two teams together and delivers a value enhancing transaction which achieves key objectives for both parties and provides a platform for continued international growth. 


Keely Woodley and her highly energised team have that magic combination of the ‘people skills’ along with the ‘serious commercial grit’ needed in these times. They helped us cut the ‘right deal’ and I genuinely enjoyed the ride! I would certainly use them again.

Toby Dixon Founder and CEO, Marlin Green Limited
