I recommend them highly to anyone looking to make a move within or into the industries they handle, anyone who just wants to weigh their options, or any employer in the digital space looking to make the right hire the first time.”

Digital People helped us fill the role quickly and efficiently. They were highly effective at matching candidate to role and company culture and took the time to follow up once the candidate had started, to check that the role was working out as expected for both parties. I would definitely use them again for future recruiting requirements

I have no hesitation in recommending Ed. With a background in digital, he fully understands this area of the market. He expertly represented the Tots brand during our discussions, demonstrating a willingness to properly research the role and the company and target accordingly to suit both client and candidate. Ed's combination of industry knowledge, approach and effort makes him an excellent recruitment consultant.
