Creative Recruitment Websites

Hi Everyone,

I'm currently looking for a new job in a creative agency (graphic / web designer). Does anyone have any recommendations of recruitment websites for the creative industry?

I've come across a couple, but they either have lots of jobs in London (a bit far for me) or they have hardly any jobs at all.

These are a couple of what I've found so far:

Advertising, creative, design, digital, media, new media and web jobs.
Jobs
Design Jobs | Graphic Design, Web Design & Interior Design Jobs | Design Week Jobs

Any help welcomed! Of course if you own an agency and would like to offer me a job then that's even better as it would save me trawling t'internet everyday as I have been!

Thanks,

Tony

Hi Tony

Consider tailoring your methods according to the type of agency you want to work for. Larger agencies may use local regional creative recruitment agencies, they also probably a receive a load speculative of CVs and portfolios. Google creative recruitment agencies and you'll find a ton.

Smaller companies like mine I doubt would use recruitment agencies often because of their fees. A direct approach might be useful, checking forums like this one, maybe even get yourself along to local networking sessions/evening meetings for creative businesses - you'll find yourself rubbing shoulders with some business owners.

Best of luck

Hi mpjd,

Thanks for your advice. I've already started emailing agencies directly, as well as scouring relevant job sites and contacting creative recruitment agencies, so hopefully I'll find the perfect job soon!

Cheers

Creative recruitment agencies are a massive waste of time, go direct to the horses mouth.

I once got a reply from one recruitment agency in comic sans... say no more.

PS nice portfolio :)

Make sure you follow up on those emails... Directors are generally busy, don't expect a response straight away or at all from an email. Just to clarify - Ring them!!

Chances are your email will just go to the receptionist who will just file it in the bin because she's on minimum wage and can't be arsed.
