Digitalent is a small independent digital recruitment agency with a truly global reach. We recruit for our wonderful clients of all shapes and sizes across both the UK and Australian markets in three main verticals; Technology, Creative and Marketing.
We just started off on our third year in business (our birthday was on October 25th)!
Whilst we may be small in terms of numbers (3 full time employees as well as a number of freelancers currently in the business), we still pack a hefty punch. We now boast an impressive portfolio of clients ranging from Digital Agencies to Software Houses, Banks , Insurance companies, Airlines, Supermarkets, Car Retailers, E-Commerce companies with new clients being added on a weekly basis.
We are passionate about growing a Digital Recruitment Agency built for 2019. Our company is underpinned by some very innovative technology which allows us to interview our candidates on video and meet our clients online wherever possible. This means that we can work from anywhere at any time with no need to endure the daily commute to your typical recruitment agency office. We know how frustrating the commute can become, especially if you have worked in recruitment for a number of years!
