We employ the right people…

Our talented, intelligent consultants have pretty much all worked in marketing in a previous life. You can meet them here.

Having first hand experience of the roles we recruit for gives us invaluable insight and means we ‘get it right’ more often. And since we’re not commissioned, we’re driven only by our passion to put the right people in the right jobs. 

Each of our consultants has their own specialist sectors and will work with you to fill both your permanent and freelance vacancies. We understand the nuances of your particular industry and talent needs. You can check out our areas of expertise here.


…to find the right people…

                         250 New Marketing Candidates Every Month

We make it our business to get to know candidates before you do, so we can be sure of the culture fit as well as the ‘on paper’ fit and you don’t get inundated with CVs that are ‘not quite right’.

We’re true advocates of candidate care, ensuring that we get back to every single applicant whether they’re successful or not, and offering career advice and coaching. You can read what our candidates think of us here.

It’s important to us that we understand, champion and protect your brand as an employer, so we always represent you with the integrity you deserve.

We share candidates across teams (no commission means increased collaboration) so you benefit from the transferable skills that we’re hot at spotting.

We advertise on third party sites as well as on our own website, and we don’t charge extra for this. We can ‘word search’ all 37,000 CVs we hold on file as well as using LinkedIn and other social channels to connect with marketers.

…The Stopgap Way

Our 21 year heritage means we have a unique and long-standing relationship with a network of marketers who have grown up with us. Our service-led approach, low staff turnover and rich engagement programme have all helped us guide thousands of marketing professionals through their careers – from first job to ‘top dog’. This means we have access to an unparalleled pool of marketing talent that refreshes itself through referral and recommendation. You can see what other clients say about us here.

By daring to be different, we challenge the recruitment industry’s reputation for bad practice and poor service.
