Our Story


iknowho was established in 2008 by experienced marketing recruiter Dene Gambotto

Over 10 years on we not only have a renowned reputation for the talent we place but we also offer knowledge, guidance and insight into the marketing industry. Our relationships with our candidates and clients give us insight into what’s really going on behind the scenes in agencies and marketing departments.

We aim to create career relationships with our candidates and clients – we are proud that the first candidate we placed in 2008 is a client today. We invest in our community via knowledge events such as our Speaker SeriesInterview Training and our Award Sponsorships. Our community is strong and the first to hear about new opportunities -  of the marketers we placed in 2018, 88% were sourced through our network rather than job boards – so we know it pays to be “in the know”.

We care about our industry and are passionate about doing our bit to improve diversity of all kinds. We’re proud to say that last year we placed marketers from 13 nationalities and of the senior marketing appointments more than 50% were female (78% actually). We also work closely with agencies and corporates who are focused on providing opportunities for mums returning to work. We like statistics and keep an eye on these to keep us on course!

We’re proud to be an RCSA Member and to have been named Finalists in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for our Candidate Care.  We have also been finalists at the SEEK Annual Recruitment Awards (SARA) for Excellence in Candidate Care and Small Recruitment Agency of the Year, and have been accredited by Recruiter Insider as Candidate Experience Experts in 2020.

As an experienced team of marketing recruiters, we have both the “know who” and “know how” to successfully recruit the best marketing talent in Sydney. We are specialist marketing recruiters, not generalists, who cover both agency and in-house marketing roles. 

Let’s get to know each other
