Looking for a job within an advertising agency? You have arrived at the right place! Our senior management team has invaluable experience of both working in and setting up advertising agencies across the region.  This has enabled us to fully understand your requirements and key motivations when making your next career move and allows us to speak knowledgably to potential employers about your requests and desires.

At The Candidate, we have built upon excellent relationships with the leading advertising, marketing and creative agencies across the region, thus allowing us to successfully provide them with their recruitment needs across a variety of roles and positions.  Ranging from experienced marketers, account managers, SEO executives and media buyers, our regular contact with agencies (your next employer) helps us ensure that you get the best opportunities and are placed in the most suitable opening.

Advertising agency's method of recruiting has changed.  Due to the continued success of agencies in the area including new business wins and demands for new product offerings, the need for skilled and experienced people like you has increased.  In the past agencies preferred option would have been  to employ entry level candidates that they are able to train up, however a skills shortage and a demand for people with your skills has resulted in a change.  Agencies now call upon specialist recruitment agencies such as The Candidate to help identify the specialist skills and experience that candidates like you possess.

Advertising agencies are typically classified by the service they offer to clients. We primarily deal with the following types of agency:

  • Digital marketing advertising agency
  • Integrated communications agency
  • Full service digital agency
  • Digital creative agency

These range from independently owned advertising agencies through to regional offices of global advertising agency brands like Group M and Aegis.

Advertising agencies offer a variety of opportunities to candidates. Certain candidates prefer different styles of agency in terms of their approach and service levels. For example some agencies prefer to have a work hard play hard attitude, with long days and a healthy active social scene. Others can be based further afield and tend to have a more scheduled day for their teams.

To secure your chance to work for some of the best advertising agencies in the UK, submit your details here today. We will profile you during our initial meeting and reliably inform our agency clients of you skills, objectives and personality. From that, hopefully we'll be in a strong position to secure an interview so you can personally present yourself to the agencies themselves.

The Candidate offers a unique full service to candidates, which means we will be there to support you through every stage of the interview process and always on hand with help and advice to help secure your next move.

Digital Marketing Recruitment Guide Digital Agency Showcase

TESTIMONIALS

Simon was amazing at helping me secure a role in Manchester when I was still living in Australia! Simon was really positive and upbeat about the opportunities and put a range of roles to me that were all fantastic. Most importantly, Simon checked in with me regularly as I went through the interview process, helped work around the time differences and technology issues with interviewing from overseas. I never had to worry about where the process was at, he was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I couldn't have asked for a better recruitment process. I am really excited to be starting my new role, and when the time comes that I need new candidates in my team, I will certainly be asking for Simon's help.
