Our Story

Who We Are

iknowho is a specialist marketing recruitment agency, established by experienced marketing recruiter Dene Gambotto with the objective to deliver a more personal and pro-active approach to marketing recruitment.

At every touch point we aim to guide, advise and share knowledge. We have a dedicated team of experienced marketing recruiters, we are not an agency of generalists - We are marketing recruitment specialists. Being a specialist marketing recruitment agency, iknowho are able to ensure depth of knowledge and scope in candidate reach, within the marketing field.

We cover both client-side/corporate and agency roles, which puts us in a unique position to identify the ideal mix of skills from a broad spectrum of marketing candidates. We cover temporary, fixed term and permanent placements, and have both the “know who” and “know how” to successfully recruit the best marketing talent in Sydney. 

We think we do things the way they “should be done, how we would like them done if the shoe were on the other foot; it is this approach that ensures that we not only care for our existing candidates but we attract others, our high standards of care get talked about.

Jo is unwaveringly friendly, helpful and thorough. As a freelancer, Jo has continued to place me in great positions and been a constant source of support along the way. She knows the industry inside out - work with her, you'll love her.

Rebecca Bowman - Brand Manager

The talent that Jo brought to the table was second to none, it was clear that she had spent significant time during the search and selection process. The outcome of the retained search was us hiring a candidate who went beyond the brief. The process was stream lined and service second to none.

Meredith Cranmer - Experiential Marketing

Beth has been consistently dedicated to helping me with employment opportunities. She is an effective communicator and a great relationship builder. I totally recommend her for those professionals who are looking for a loyal, dedicated recruiter to help them find their dream job.

Monish - Digital Marketing Executive

Beth is an enthusiastic Talent Consultant. She was with me every step of the way and made sure I was prepared for interviews. Although accepting another role, Beth has continued to assist during the process of this role as well.

Jo's incredible connection skills were displayed when she was able to place me at WPP. Her approach is friendly, she's knowledgeable about the market and connected with contacts. I would highly recommend her as in my experience, she is able to unlock opportunities that are directly suited to you.

Matt Graham - Senior Account Director

Dene is a breath of fresh air. Her passion and style sets her worlds apart. She is honest and genuine about finding the perfect match between talent and potential employers. Dene is someone who I have the up-most trust and respect for and I can't recommend her or her team at iknowho more highly.

Candace Seymour, Senior Marketing Manager

When I first met Dene it felt like we'd been friends for years. She took the time to truly understand where I wanted to take my career and the type of organisation I wanted to join. I know she has my best interests at heart when new opportunities come knocking.

Nadine Cran - Brand Comms Specialist

Dene is without a doubt one of the best recruiters/directors in Sydney. She is a true consultant and advisor. Not only that but she genuinely cares about both her clients and candidates. Extremely rare to find in this industry and I can't recommend working with Dene enough.

Johnny Wood - Engagement & Recognition Specialis

Dene has always been a pleasure to work with. She is beyond trustworth, has a wealth of knowledge in the industry and always has your best interests at heart. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a recruitment consultant!

Rebecca - Marketing Specialist

It was such a pleasure working with Brianna to land an amazing role that I love. Brianna kept me updated at all points of progression, made sure I was well prepped for the interview, and helped things move at lightning speed. I couldn't have done it without her.

Ninna - Account Manager

Brianna was great and on hand to help every step of the way, she was reactive throughout the whole process and has touched base multiple times since being placed to check in with me in my new position.
