I’m not a fan of using recruitment agencies at all. My experience in the past has been poor, feeling like you are just one in a queue of many. With no apparent expertise, they often send candidates that are not qualified. With Concept, the communication was good, I’m a big fan of using all types of channels and I’ve had text messages, WhatsApp, email and telephone calls. Some might think that’s over communicating but I absolutely don’t. Particularly if you are in a hurry like I was to find the right person. Concept found 6/7 candidates quickly and that was invaluable to us. They did a great job.
We’re the leading creative and digital recruitment agency in Newcastle and the wider North East region and we also have offices in Edinburgh and Milton Keynes.
Finding the best staff is a challenge; that’s no secret. It’s not just about the candidate’s skill set, their experience or their portfolio – it’s about understanding the pressures of the industry and finding the right culture fit for each team.
Concept was launched in 2002 as an answer to the need for knowledgeable, specialised recruitment within the industry we love. The team, entirely made up of former creative and digital industry professionals, have since filled hundreds of design, communication, marketing, digital and technical roles.
Concept is now the leading creative, marketing and digital recruitment agency in Newcastle and the wider North East region. We also have an office in Edinburgh covering roles in Scotland and an office in Milton Keynes covering the South of the UK. Our clients are agencies and in-house teams within large corporate organisations and the public sector, from start-ups to established businesses.
