How we work with our clients

We’ve worked in and with the communications agency industry at senior level for many years. We understand and have a view on the industry and the job market past, present and future and we’re interested in why it is changing and what it needs to grow in the future.

We take time to understand the specific type of talent you want to grow your agency from personality to channel experience. Like all good agency people we sometimes question the brief and take a more lateral approach, gently encouraging you to meet people you may not have considered.

The quality of our client list, depth and longevity of our client relationships is proof of the success of our approach. We get to know our candidates properly, the majority are recommended or have worked with us in the past.

OUR PROMISE TO CLIENTS

  • We visit all agencies to familiarise ourselves with your agency's environment and personality.

  • We interview our candidates face to face for at least an hour and give you a summary that reflects this.

  • Each candidate will have been briefed fully on your requirements.

  • You'll have dedicated Partner Consultants working for you

  • We will only make recommendations we think are right for you in the long term.
