Employer registration service

We like to get to know you long before you need a hand with your recruitment. Understanding your creative approach, style and client base helps us to identify people who will slot right in.

And when you have a vacancy, Concept Personnel doesn’t play the numbers game so we won’t throw a big list of candidates at you in the hope that one of them sticks.

We’ve built our reputation on studying a brief, analysing our database and suggesting a handful of people who are a good fit. Our faith in the quality of people we put forward comes from taking the time to assess candidates properly. As well as evaluating their skills and experience we like to look them in the eye and get a feel for their attitude and personality too.

As well as permanent jobs, we handle freelance and temporary contracts for agencies and in-house departments who want a wide breadth of skills, but not a huge workforce. Our clients buy in niche, up to date skills when they need them through our pool of carefully selected freelancers.

When you urgently need extra help you’ll be pleased to know we act fast. We often take the brief, set up interviews and have the successful candidate in place the same day.

Anyway that’s enough about us, what about you? If you’d like to work with an honest, genuinely specialist recruitment agency for the creative and digital sector, give us a call.

Employer testimonials

I was extremely impressed with Jo and her team, in fact I had a better service from Concept than I’ve ever had from any other Northern or Southern-based recruiter.

They are fast and efficient communicators, provided us with very useful and detailed information on candidates and did the initial assessments and first interviews, so we were able to come up from Southampton to meet the final handful face to face.

Although initially we gave Concept the brief for one role, the calibre of candidate was too good to pass up on and we made two appointments instead of one.  It was a fantastic opportunity to add to our team, and great timing.

The Concept team are both thorough and extremely professional in their approach. The whole process, from start to finish, was brilliant.

IT Service Desk Manager, Amicus ITS

We were blown away by Concept’s approach to removing a recruitment problem that we had been grappling with for months. 
 
Seeking a Project Manager, we had put the word around our network, used social channels, word of mouth and carried out interview after interview. We got a reasonable response but struggled with the calibre of applicant and eventually exhausted our options. It was time consuming and we began to think we were asking too much, and that the person we had in mind didn’t exist. 
 
A client of ours suggested we spoke with Concept Personnel. Simon quickly convinced us we were in the right hands. Project Management for a creative agency is a different animal compared to the project management in IT, telecoms, construction, etc. so we were relieved to find a recruiter who really did have expertise and experience in our field.
 
We were very specific with our requirements and Jo promised to only put people forward she believed to be a good fit. She did exactly that and we were relieved to see that there was lots of competition for the role.
 
We are genuinely impressed, the Concept team have been a huge help, contributing ideas and advice, and responding to us out of hours when needed.  
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Concept team, and will definitely be using their services in the future. (See full testimonial on our blog.)
