Senior Creative Recruiter

The position

We want a consultant, with plenty of experience in the creative industry, who can help us further establish and grow our business in the North West. Someone who can talk consultancy matters with both creative directors and junior designers. Who can come in and hit the ground running, drive business across both freelance and permanent markets, and help us establish new relationships in the region.

In this particular role, you'll specialise in recruiting for the creative market, working with talented brand designers, digital creatives, strategists, art directors, UX consultants, artworkers, motion designers and the like. 

You'll more than likely come with an established network you can harness, and will work closely with the MD to grow our Manchester operation. You'll have a sixth sense for a good opportunity and be a dab hand at converting enquiries.

Who do we work with?

Creative agencies and consultancies that specialise in brand, design and digital. We carefully and craftily match them up with talented people. We cover tech, digital marketing and client services needs too. If you're genuinely passionate about helping people build fulfilling careers, you'll fit right in at Craft. 

Positive and forward-thinking attitudes are infectious, inspiring and all-round good for business. As well as the day-to-day stuff, we attend and contribute to industry events, and we love a creative collaboration or two, too. 

We tend to do things a little differently to your average creative recruitment business. We recently launched our own beer, brewed in collaboration with local beer heroes Northern Monk. And we run a regular event where we bring together leading creative directors and budding designers in need of a helping hand - called Portfolio Lab.

What we want from you

You're driven, friendly and self-motivated with a commercial mindset and a strong track record in recruitment, specifically within the creative agency market. You enjoy building genuine and lasting relationships, and you waste no time seizing opportunities.

Strong negotiation and communication skills go without saying. You're happy to manage your own time and workload. In short, you're an all-round good egg who's ambitious, works hard and doesn't need their hand holding. 

You’ll love working here

We would say that, wouldn't we. But if you’re like us and in this game for the sheer joy of helping people build satisfying careers – while being generously rewarded along the way (our commision structure is VERY generous) – then we’re the employer for you. 

Flexible working and time off

We believe that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (or Jill a dull girl). So we champion a good work-life balance here at Craft. We reward results rather than hours worked, which means you're free to manage your workload and your hours in ways that suit us all.

We also finish early most Fridays, and offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) as standard. Plus one extra year of holiday for every year's service, up to 30 days.

Help us grow

Now's a good time to join us. Craft is getting bigger, always getting better, and looking for a likeminded ambitious type to help grow our brilliant client base and reputation. Your ideas and opinions count too. So you'll have a say in business decisions that help us become the go-to creative recruiter across the north of England.
