We understand advertising agencies because we have worked in them and have even been responsible for setting them up. Our co-founder Colin Telford has worked in global advertising agency MediaVest and has experience setting up an advertising agency in Manchester called R.O.EYE from scratch where he grew this to over 30 people strong. When The Candidate was created, its purpose was to solely supply advertising agencies in Manchester with a skilled workforce in a digital marketing boom. Therefore, our business was built on recruiting the right people for these agencies. This is why we have trusted relationships and exclusive agreements with global agencies like Wavemaker, Havas and McCann to name a few, as well as independent and mid-sized agencies that all make up the fabric of Manchester.
