Getting to know us recruit

What we’re all about

More walk, less talk

We’ve been recruiting within the digital, marketing, PR and creative sectors for agency-side and in-house clients since 1988.

  • Agencies: We work with all types of agencies, ranging from brand and design agencies, to full-service digital outfits plus, everything in between.
  • In-house: We recruit for the widest mix of in-house roles, which includes national retailers and manufacturers, premier league football clubs, universities, charities, professional services and innovative tech firms, to name but a few.

And we help companies recruit at all levels, whether that’s a small independent digital agency taking on its first hire or a multi-national property PLC looking for a Head of Digital.

Over the last decade, the agency and in-house scene has changed beyond recognition, and will no doubt continue to evolve. At the time of writing this, October 2018, demand is still outstripping supply in the agency and in-house marketing sectors, but our history of attracting and sourcing candidates means that we will always find that little golden nugget for you. It just may take a little more time than normal but hiring someone special is not meant to be rushed.

Our mission is to help you fill your role(s) quickly and efficiently by understanding what you’re looking for in terms of expertise, character and fit. We also work closely with you to find the most credible candidates.

Without question, our USP is knowledge, which we have plenty of!

Our core team of recruiters, Simon, Debra, and Emma, are business owners, which means they fully understand the importance of placing candidates, who add value to your business. What’s more, they’ve dedicated most of their lives to the sector and knowing what works and doesn’t work is second nature to them.

We’ve been doing what we do for 30+ years now. Unlike, other recruitment specialists, we don’t have a high staff turnover, which means if you only recruit once or twice a year, chances are you’ll deal with the same person again.

You may also be pleased to hear that we never blag because we don’t see any point in it

That’s right. We’re straight-talking and hardworking and dedicated to providing you with a detailed insight into candidates’ skill sets and experience. We also appreciate that your time’s precious, so we don’t beat around the bush, we’ll tell you right away if we think somebody isn’t right for your business.

We appreciate that the cost of replacing employees can be expensive, which is why we aim to help you recruit employees, who respect your business and are committed to working for your company. The more information you share with us about your vacancy and organisation, the better we’ll be at understanding your requirements and ticking your boxes.

A lot of our current clients actually used to be our candidates – there really is no better testament to our service and ethics than this

Talk to us and you’ll soon discover that we’re also big believers in the age-old saying, ‘what goes around comes around.’ This means we advise both parties on what we think will work for them based on our experience.

Hiring can be an incredibly emotional process, it can even be irrational at times. But all in all, we’re always mindful of the fact that we’re dealing with people’s businesses and lives – and it’s something we’re most certainly never complacent about.
