Brand Digital and Creative is the Eastern regions only specialist digital and creative recruitment agency. A sister company to award-winning Brand Recruitment, the new enterprise is the product of Brands success and the evolution of the job market. Over the past four years at Brand we have worked on a variety of digital and creative roles. Many of our clients started to recruit increasingly within the online marketing, SEO and PPC sphere, and would also regularly ask us to source graphic designers for them, explains Louise Allwood, Managing Consultant of Brand Digital and Creative, These disciplines sat alongside our core focus of PR and Marketing, so working on these roles was a natural progression and one which complemented our existing offering. Over time, however, the need for a specialist focus on these specific sectors has become clear, both in terms of being able to offer clients a full and in-depth knowledge of the market, as well as being able to adapt to a slightly different culture with candidates. For example, there are more freelancers in the digital and creative world, so we feel it necessary to offer a service to suit their needs.
With seven years experience in recruitment and over two years as Brands most successful consultant, Louise has spent the past six months preparing for the transition from Brand to the new enterprise, and has been encouraged by the reception she has received from both candidates and clients alike. Both my existing clients and new businesses I have approached have been very receptive of the concept of a specialist digital and creative recruitment agency, and I have been surprised at the volume and quality of decent candidates who are living in the Eastern Region. Many of the candidates have been using agencies based in London, so have warmly welcomed the prospect of a specialist agency with local knowledge.
