We have 35 years of experience matching our clients with the right talent for their needs. But that’s not all we do. We’re proud to be so much more than your average recruiter.
Recruitment with a difference.
Finding top candidate matches is only a small part of what has made us the largest global digital, creative and marketing recruitment agency. Our staff, technology and commitment to a unique service, based on our belief in people, make us a trusted resource for digital creatives.
The Best Quality, Fully Vetted Candidates.
All the talent we choose to represent must first pass a thorough vetting process including assessment of practical and interpersonal skills, remote working experience, and background checks. This way we can ensure that when hiring from our talent pool you’ll only ever receive the highest quality candidates - individuals that we are proud to support and enable to grow through in-depth training.
Exceptional Service & Industry Knowledge.
Our teams are filled with people who understand your business requirements and the expectations of your required roles. Each and every client has a dedicated account manager to ensure consistently excellent communication and service. Your account manager - assigned to your account due to their specific industry expertise - will deliver the ideal solution for you by identifying the talent best suited to your needs.
Quick Turnaround with a Streamlined Process.
Whether we’re headhunting candidates or talent are reaching out to be represented by Aquent, we’ve spent the last 35 years streamlining our hiring process. Today we have a vast and ever-growing global database of ready-to-work talent so that when you get in touch we can ensure we have ideal candidates ready for referral.
Technology & Data to make Hiring Easier.
We’ve developed and refined our own proprietary talent management system, MyAquent, to modernise how we handle the full talent cycle - including planning, hiring freelancers, overseeing timecards, budgeting and cost management. With this data to hand we can continually learn and improve across all areas to make the recruitment process even easier.
Having won Best of Staffing Client Award 6 years in a row, the Gold Supplier Award with ProUnlimited, and Staffing Industry Analyst Best Staffing Firm to Work for, we’re proud to be considered among the top tier of marketing and creative recruitment specialists for the UK. Our client satisfaction scores are over 50% higher than the industry average and we frequently get top-ratings in employment agency reviews. Making clients happy makes us happy!
Our work is bigger than us.
Where the art, craft, and theater of Starbucks coffee meet, so do we.
Aquent Studios works with the coffee giant’s marketing team and handles in-store creative, merchandising, local ads, event design apps, and even out-of-home. We are also the Starbucks Reserve brand’s go-to for creative execution.
When Disney launched its streaming service, we helped make the magic happen.
The Disney+ streaming service had great entertainment content to be successful, but they looked to our talent (designers, video editors etc.) to create marketing that attracted 30 million happy subscribers in just three months.
Levi’s and the best talent never go out of style.
Ten years ago we helped place a recent college graduate at Levi’s. He’s now Director of UX and works exclusively with us to hire new contractors. When global ecommerce built their mobile app, our talent filled production/creative and 50% of UX roles.
Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what our clients think.
“I use Aquent because they have excellent candidates. They take the time to understand and listen to my requirements, and provide a personal service.” Russell Wilis, Trendstream
“Aquent are good at communicating and are always quick to come back to me. They have a different set-up to most recruiters with an Account Manager and Agent specialist working together. It makes for a nicer and more streamlined approach.” Courtney Bell, Hogarth
“Aquent are very patient and understanding of our business and internal limitations. They are more than a supplier, they are a true recruitment partner.” Emma Gilbert, Alexander Mann
