Our story so far...

There’s more to becoming a premium recruitment agency than turning up to client meetings with muffins.

In the last twelve years, we’ve…

  • Launched as the sole ‘creative and digital only’ recruitment agency in Australasia and Asia.
  • Created a unique model for independent professional people that is results driven, creative at heart and big on service.
  • Marketed the business locally and internationally, in order to generate high volumes of work for members across regions.
  • Helped talent with career planning and advice, including creative (e.g. portfolio), financial (e.g. rates) and legal (e.g. setting up as a sole trader).
  • Sponsored key industry events such as the Axis Awards, Best Design Awards, Design Assembly and Semi-Permanent.
  • Inspired scores of professional people to branch out on their own thanks to our ‘Be Your Own Boss’ campaign.
  • Sent talent on assignments as far away as Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, Vietnam and Wellington!
  • Championed new freelance and contracting standards for the creative, digital and marketing industries.
  • Grown from two talent agents to eight in order to provide clients with the depth of service they need.
