Digital Recruitment – Market Update

2014 has been a strong year for digital recruitment. Early on some major accounts were won which meant our agency clients needed to scale up first to meet the needs of their new clients. Most of this was done across, tech, digital production, design and UX.

Another trend we noticed was the shift from hiring Technical Directors to Creative Technologists. This year we have placed more Creative Techs than ever.

In the last quarter the Senior end of the market has picked up, where I have personally filled multiple Senior roles across Strategy and Senior Management.

Coming into Christmas is traditionally a time when our clients look to freelance, so this side of the market should pick up dramatically. If you’re a freelancer – contact Matilda or Josh in our freelance team on +61 2 9114 8160. Or give me a call any time to discuss your digital needs, either for your team or yourself.
