Having experienced recruitment from all angles – as a senior suit in an advertising agency, as an internal Head of Talent and now as a marketing specialist recruiter at iknowho, I know as well as anyone how a busy week can get in the way of things, and often providing candidate feedback on an interview whether it be positive, negative or somewhere in between, can fall to the bottom of the pile.  But consider it from the candidates’ point of view, your feedback might well relate to the job of their dreams, so for them, it’s equivalent to a four-year-old waiting for Christmas morning to a ..read more

While everyone else was panic buying toilet paper, flour and hand sanitiser back in April, I decided to buy myself a ‘pandemic puppy’. Stevie is a black Cockalier (Cocker Spaniel cross Cavalier), and it was love at first sight when we met him. Our team are all a little bit dog crazy, we often have a cameo on our team calls from one of our pets and used to love when we had an office dog for the day. I’d always wanted my own dog, but with work commitments and some long days in the office, I knew it just wasn’t fair, dogs needed more time and attention than my life before COVID allowed.

Why you should be hiring for culture add, not a culture fit As we move into a rapidly evolving time within the creative agency space, we’re seeing more mergers of independents in an effort to future proofing and acquisitions of agencies, meaning they are now a part of a network.
