The task of attracting the best Creative talent can seem like an impossible challenge. Where do you start? What does a good designer look like on paper? But fear not, we specialise in recruitment in the Creative sector and can share insight on how to attract, recruit and retain the best talent to your team.
The difficulty in recruiting great Creative talent lies in the fact that it isn’t simply a skill matching exercise. Since design is so subjective and each agency fosters its own creative culture, finding the right talent is less about ability and experience and more about attitude and creative thinking. First, we must question what makes a good designer. In my experience, it’s an innate curiosity, a constant drive to learn, a passion for problem-solving, patience and clear communication. These skills might not be obvious on a CV and that’s why the interview process is so crucial in enabling us to read between the lines.
