Creative, Digital and Media Recruitment

The creative industry is split across agencies and in-house teams. It will be freelance or permanent positions that you will be recruiting into. The client base includes agencies, consultancies, studios, digital, branding, retail, interiors, publishing, broadcasting, and telecoms. The Creative, Digital and Media recruitment sector is huge and spans across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Specialisms span a whole range and often include business to business, business to customer, new business, direct marketing, branding, sales promotion, corporate identity and literature, interactive, exhibitions, point of sale and experiential.

As a Creative Recruitment Consultant the positions you will recruit for are, Art Director, Art Worker, Brand Consultant, Brand Strategist, Client Services Director, Copywriter, Creative Editor, and all roles around these. The Creative sector is a professional sales environment. Most of the candidates and clients you will be working with are ‘uber cool’ and ‘on trend’. This means your office will be this way as well. The majority of recruitment offices in this sector have music playing; they dress down and have a consultative approach rather than the focused sales approach of other sectors. GSR2R works with all the top market-leading Creative and Digital agencies and has done for many years.

Media is split into agencies, media owners and advertisers across the whole spectrum – from sales to planning and buying, and from traditional channels to digital. 

These disciplines cover:

  • Media sales – from advertising and sales to video and everything in-between
  • Media planning and buying – this includes buying adverts

In a similar situation to the Digital arena, there are a multitude of roles that you will recruit into. These can span from junior logistical roles to experienced Campaign Managers. The Media sector is a professional sales environment with an edge. You will deal with corporate candidates working within the big FTSE business to very trendy media types who are always networking and schmoozing. At GSR2R we know this market well! And we mean, really well. Remember Rec 2 Rec is our world. We are specialists in our field. Our consultants know everyone and have years of experience. As a result we are incredibly well connected in this arena, where we definitely have our finger on the pulse.
