Getting to know us recruit

What we’re all about

More walk, less talk.

We’ve been hiring partners & talent seekers within the digital, marketing, PR and creative sectors for agency-side and in-house clients since 1988.

We’re fiercely into doing the right thing & firmly believe that what goes around, comes around.  Be good is our mantra.

  • Agencies: We work with all types of agencies, ranging from brand and design to full-service digital outfits plus, everything in between.
  • In-house: We recruit for the widest mix of in-house roles, which includes e-commerce businesses, property developers,  retailers and fashion houses, 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 PLC looking to build a marketing & digtial team from the ground up.

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, July 2019, demand is significantly 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 take the pressure off & help you find people that are not easy to detect. We don’t rush it but, with the right tools, operate 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!

We don’t belive that knowledge is power but, it’s certainly taught us in spades, what works & what doesn’t. That is what saves you time & money.

Our core team of  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’re candid. 

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 role  and organisation, the better we’ll be at understanding your requirements and finding someone that significantly adds value.    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.
