More Reasons to Go North!

Here at The Candidate we love the North West! Last year, with the help of Twitter, we asked you why you LOVE living & working in the region and then complied the Top 100 reasons! This year we sponsored SAScon, the North West's leading Digital conference and we thought it was the perfect opportunity to find out from the digital marketing community the reasons why they love the North! 

In our latest report we found The North West has never been more attractive to digital talent with over 54% saying they would be willing to relocate to a northern city. It has never been a more exciting live and work in the North West, see why people love calling it their home....

Digital Marketing Recruitment Guide Digital Agency Showcase


It didn’t take long to build rapport with Laura, as her excellent communication skills shone through from the start. She placed me in my most recent position and was very thorough in liaising between myself and my prospective employer at the time - an often understated skill. Moving to a new city for the position at short notice was not going to be easy, but Laura made sure I was as informed and prepped as possible when going through the interview stages and seemed to always have my best interests at heart. One of the most personable recruiters I have worked with, and I will certainly be calling her first when I am considering changing position again!
