Regular networking – both locally and nationally – gives us an in-depth market knowledge, meaning we always know the best people to speak to about joining your organisation, rather than just relying on those actively applying.

And understand your pain points...
Working in partnership with you, we take advantage of our extensive networks, market knowledge and candidate database to ensure that we are being proactive in approaching talented individuals with the required skill set.
Without help, you can easily become overwhelmed in dealing with too many applications from many who are underqualified or otherwise unsuitable. That’s where we come in. We can save you time and money with our service, to help you find the right marketing and creative professionals.
Our commitment to you is to fully understand your mission, values, culture, strategy, and to represent your brand with the sole purpose of elevating you in the market and providing people looking to work for you with a first-class experience.
We have access to 200,000 PR, marketing & creative candidates – more than any other recruitment service. So, we can find you the best person for the job quickly and efficiently.
We will investigate the history of each marketing and creative candidate thoroughly, including to learn how successful they have been in the past. For example, if you are hiring a social media manager, we can uncover and assess their past campaigns.
Through competency-based interviewing techniques, our experts will establish each individual’s marketing knowledge, skills and expertise, how and when they have used these and what campaign performance and ROI was achieved.
Our specialist PR, marketing and creative consultants interview professionals to ascertain their suitability for your role.
We make every effort to fully understand your needs and that of our candidates to ensure a perfect match. Whether that be finding someone local to your offices or a marketing and creative professional with a unique skill set – we strive to make the recruitment process seamless.
During our thorough screening process, one of the first questions we ask is about their salary expectations. We use our counteroffer training to manage overly high expectations and anticipate when a professional is likely to receive a counteroffer from their current employer.
