We want a consultant, with experience in the creative or digital industry, who can help us further establish and grow our business in the North. In return, we offer a relaxed, progressive and ambitious working environment, alongside people who are passionate about what they do.
You might come with an established network you can harness, or you might be relocating to the North after a stint working in London for a similar recruitment agency. 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 businesses build talented teams, 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 recruitment business. We launched our own beer, brewed in collaboration with local beer heroes Northern Monk and worked with North Star Roasters on a celebratory coffee to send to clients at Christmas.
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 and digital agency market.
We need someone in this role who can talk recruitment matters with everyone from managing directors to junior designers. Who can come in and hit the ground running, drive business across both permanent and/or freelance markets, and help us establish new relationships in the region.
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 cares about what you do.
You enjoy building genuine and lasting relationships, and you waste no time seizing opportunities.
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 on 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 and digital recruiter across the north of England.
