as Recruitment Consultant and is already helping The Candidate
bolster its presence further in Leeds and across Yorkshire. Read
about what she is doing with the team in that fantastic region and
how you can benefit as a Candidate or Client!
Cross, Agency Recruitment Consultant
I recently joined The Candidate from a digital and off line
sales background to further develop our presence in the amazing
Yorkshire marketing and media sectors. My knowledge of clients'
desires to run amazing marketing campaigns will help me place
experienced and talented people in a range of roles. Whether its
advertising agencies or client side, Yorkshire has it all and we
want to grow The Candidate's presence further by applying its
successful approach to recruitment there. Spearheaded by our Head
of Agency Recruitment Simon Clarke,
whose invaluable industry experience will play a vital role in our
team's success, we've already placed multiple candidates and expect
not only to take increased market share but help grow the digital
recruitment industry there. That will come from our knowledge and
experience to create opportunities as well as our unique attraction
methods for candidates that will bring new talent to the region and
help feed the skills shortage. Very similar to our Manchester and
North West success I believe!
Here at The Candidate we're not only
about putting your needs first but identifying the essential
cultural matches between different clients and candidates that has
been a key factor in our success as a company so far.
Having built strong
relationships with some of The Candidate's top clients in my
previous role, such as Carat,
MEC and Mediacom, I will
be able to utilise my inside industry knowledge to the benefit of
our candidates and make this work.
By being able to assist based on their
experience and future goals, I can help identify the best
opportunities to allow them to reach their full potential. We
are proud to be expanding our relationship with leading Global
Advertising Agency Carat in Leeds who, based
on the success of our work with the Manchester office, is looking
forward to utilising our growing presence in that region.
The Candidate have recently carried out some
research on relocation and looked at factors to consider when
attracting talent to the North. With London living costs
continuously increasing, Manchester and Leeds are rapidly becoming
the UK's hotspot for the creative industries and no wonder why!
With their buzzing music scenes, some of England's trendiest bars
and restaurants and the laidback friendly atmosphere that's so hard
to find in thriving city centres, it complements a thriving digital
scene. Then relax in Britain's most enviable and outstanding areas
of beauty with the Yorkshire Dales on your doorstep. Most recently
Leeds hosted festivals such as SlamDunk and Garden Party,
which are only a taster of the array of events that will be hitting
the City this summer.
We looking forward to seeing you
Managing Partner Brian Matthews commented:
'With many of our clients operating in different locations all
over the North West we have listened to their needs and
requirements and further expanded our services into Yorkshire. We
have seen a massive demand for talent there with the growth of the
digital marketing sector. We also found that we had a large and
growing talent pool and unless they were willing to travel to
Manchester we could do very little for them. We are very pleased to
now be placing the right candidates in the jobs they want in Leeds
and across the vast opportunity that is Yorkshire.'
Simon Clarke, Head of Agency Recruitment commented by
'Megan has a great attitude and enthusiasm for the North West.
She has already built strong links with key clients and has a real
eye for recognising talent and we are very excited that she is
leading this for us. We recognise that an established cultural
understanding of clients in that region will allow us to achieve
our ambitious objectives there.'
