Need a specialist recruiter?

DIY recruitment is a pain in the portfolio. Why drop your fee-earning work to spend time and effort fruitlessly searching for and interviewing people who are not right for your business?

Without sounding too pleased with ourselves, we’ve spent over ten years studying the digital and creative industry, so we are quietly confident that we know our industry and its people pretty much inside out.

Our database holds details of thousands of talented people in the digital, design, marketing and communications industries. From recent graduates keen to climb the career ladder to creatives with years of experience and a need for a new challenge, we know where the stars are.

Employer testimonials

“The calibre of our team is what keeps us at the top of our game working with global brands, and Concept is now part of our recruitment strategy.

We only look to employ the very best creatives so we don’t expect to pick them up easily. Recruiting for us is difficult because our standards are so high and we are careful about who we take on, but Jo and the team are relentless in their efforts on our behalf, scouring further and further afield to find us exactly the right people. And they’re always great to meet socially too, and genuinely interested in what’s going on in our business.”

Matt Chapman

Creative Director, Contagious

Working with Concept when recruiting for my team has been an absolute dream. Being totally honest, I was not excited about the prospect of recruiting again as I’ve used other agencies in the past who have struggled to fill the role, making the process seem really drawn out, time-consuming, and kind of deflating. Concept totally changed this and made recruiting enjoyable again! I really felt as though Jo understood exactly what kind of person we were looking for from the outset and we were provided with an excellent pool of candidates. We wanted to fill the role relatively quickly and it only took a couple of weeks from providing a brief to Jo, to having a candidate accept our offer. We actually ended up with a really strong shortlist which was a great position to be in. The whole thing has felt effortless for me, too, and Jo and the team are all so lovely to work with – I genuinely felt like Jo was truly invested in finding Communicator a candidate who had to be 100% the right fit, so thanks again for all of your hard work! I’ll definitely use Concept when recruiting again in future.

Candidate testimonials

“Over the last few years Jo has found me numerous freelance gigs as a front end web designer, before helping me land the permanent job I’m in now. I’ve been registered with other agencies but they were not nearly as helpful or switched on about what’s happening in the region and the industry.

Jo knows what she’s doing, and bent over backwards to help me find an organisation where my skills and personality would fit in well. I’ve been here for a year now and I’m very happy – life is good.”

Ian Sidaway

Digital Design Director

Having only graduated last summer, and working in a digital marketing agency for the past year, I'm relatively new to the industry. I got in touch with Concept Personnel after having no luck sourcing a relevant PR focused job and was put in contact with Erin. From our initial phone call, to numerous emails back and forth about potential opportunities, Erin has gone above and beyond to make me feel confident and at ease. She sourced the perfect job for me, liaised with me on information I needed for both of my interviews and advised me on anything I was unsure of. Good news is... I got the job! I honestly wouldn't be in the position I am, without Erin's help and encouragement. She was professional and friendly and her knowledge, experience and excellent customer service skills were evident. I can't recommend Erin, and Concept Personnel enough!Thank you again for all your help :)
