Kelly McGrath

What are your specialist areas?

I specialise in roles in Strategy, Content, Social Media, Ecommerce, and Client Services – both contract & perm. I cover roles at all levels but am highly experience in mid and senior-level appointments.

Why should you be my Guru?

I am an experienced Senior Talent & Recruitment Leader with 8+ years recruitment experience, working both internal and agency side, coupled with 4 years prior experience in broadcasting and social media marketing. Having worked as a Producer and Social Media Manager, I can spend hours talking about the industry and I love learning about new trends and campaigns.

I’m always fascinated by communications, innovation and human behaviour. I moved into Digital Talent & Recruitment to combine my love of technology by enabling people to reach their full potential and work with employers to develop strategic recruitment plans and build successful teams. I am passionate about inclusion, belonging and diversity in the recruitment and candidate experience life-cycle.

What’s your background?

Previously in-house as Head of Talent & Inclusion at matchesfashion.com and Group Talent Partner at WPP AUNZ (AKQA and Ogilvy), I am now a Senior Lead Recruitment Consultant at Digital Gurus, London where I worked for 5 years before moving to Australia in 2017. Before I worked in Talent & Recruitment, I was a Radio Producer in Ireland and then Social Media Manager at Things Unlimited in London. I am also a qualified yoga teacher and when not in the office you can find me teaching across studios in London!

Why did you join Digital Gurus?

I originally joined Digital Gurus in 2013 and left after 5 years to move to Sydney for a year (I still miss the coffee there!). I then moved back to London to head up an internal talent team at an ecommerce company. After 2 years away from DG, I realised how much I missed the company – it was always my favourite company that I worked for. I love the people and culture of the company.


Yoga, coffee (in my KeepCup!), sustainability, dinosaur facts, vegan food, and all animals!


Coriander!!! When I wear flip-flops and it rains.
