Marcus Davies Bateman

Managing Director

I have 16 years in recruitment and am currently Managing Director for Cobalt where I oversee a team of 50 recruiters who specialise in real estate, construction and financial services.

I started my career with Cobalt as a Junior Consultant working on a Temp desk in London, before relocating to Singapore to set-up our Asia business which I ran for 9 years.

In 2020 I returned to London as UK Managing Director.

Before my career in recruitment, I spent 3 years as a Police Officer in Dorset, professionally trained in police interview techniques - quite different from candidate interviews!

Passionate about recruitment, rugby and golf.
