We're an award winning recruitment agency like no other. Our business is built on a collaborative, supportive and socially conscious ethos that allows every person in our team to love what they do, feel supported and achieve more than they ever thought possible.We are a true partner for most of the UK's leading creative events and experiential agencies (think car launches, award shows, festival activations etc) connecting exceptional talent to great opportunities.No hard sales, no recruitment bull.. we just work hard, give exceptional service to our clients, use our industry knowledge and utilise the latest tech / resources to make sure we are the go to recruitment agency for the industry.Why join us?We think we offer something different, here's why.A great team: Everyone says it, but we truly do work as one team, everyone supporting each other and celebrating successes in an honest and genuine way. Everyone has a part to play in what we do and how we develop as a business, so open forums and idea sharing are integral to our success. We continuously run anonymous polls and regularly get 10/10 for personal happiness, support, training and ability to "make a difference".Advertising / reputation: We have built a great name in the industry which means that we're now the "go to" people for clients and candidates. New clients contact us all of the time and great candidates come to us for their next career move. On top of that we use latest recruitment tech and outperform all of our competitors in the sector with a very well resourced (and financed) marketing budget.Career opportunity: We trust and develop our team, that's why almost everyone in the business has been promoted at least once during their time with us.

Not bad we think..The environment: Yes there's music playing, fresh fruit, random tea flavours and all the other stuff you'll find in a cool modern office, but what really makes it special is the positive vibe and supportive / happy team.For the good: We want our team to make a difference both at work and in society. We offer 3 paid days per year to each person for charitable work, encourage charitable initiatives and we're committed to making a substantial annual donation to a charity chosen by the team.The roleWorking with the UK's leading events / experiential agencies and global brands you'll be the person that really understands the clients business and what they are looking for in a new recruit.

Candidates could come from either an events or recruitment background.From an events background candidates will need to have experience working within an events environment, managing the end to end delivery of events and managing client relationships.
