Ad of the Week: Throwing It Back to the Pre-LinkedIn Days

image

SPAE8Recruitment agencies get a lot of bad rap. They’ve got a reputation of just flinging any and every C.V they can get their hands on in your direction, leaving you to sift through the gulf of average candidates wondering whether you should hire the guy who lists his interests as ‘socialising with his friends’ or the girl who used Comic Sans. The endless phone calls from sneakyrecruiters who manage to wriggle through your first line of defence (the intern who picks up the phone) is enough to make the most Zen worker contemplate chucking their landline out the window.

 

Unfortunately it’s usually just a small percentage who tarnish the name of being a recruiter; there are tons of professionals out there who are a pleasure to work with. One such company is Studio People - a recruitment company by creatives for creatives. Before LinkedIn was a thing, the agency released a campaign of adverts looking to help other businesses hire people from roles ranging from Client Services to Copywriters in a horror comic book style.

 

Brimming with sarcasm and quips like ‘The Creative Director is a two-headed Nightmare! Beware! This fickle freak flips fruitful into futile, converts creativity into codswallop and swaps sensational for “subtle”... Avoid every agency’s nightmare & find the right staff first time.’ It’s certainly a refreshing and funny take on recruitment.
