We are recruiting for our Creative Perm desk where we currently have 60 open vacancies and one person managing them- hence we need another person! The key area of demand on this desk is Creative Directors, Design Directors, Packaging Designers, and Designers. This role will suit an experienced recruiter (6 months + would be fine) who loves recruitment but now fancies a more creative sector. You will be a natural recruiter who can easily build rapport with candidates and clients alike and can talk passionately about this ever changing and exciting sector.
A strong desire to work in both recruitment and the design sector
The natural ability to multi task and to enjoy both account management and the hunt for new business
A strong work ethic who enjoys working under pressure
The desire to go above and beyond candidates' and clients' expectations
A professional approach and a confident phone manner but not corporate
The desire to make money but not at any cost
