What our clients say

“Creative Niche was successful in finding us a highly qualified candidate for our team, for a role which had proven very challenging to fill using traditional recruitment methods.

Director, Marketing and Communications

“In my role as a creative services manager, I use freelancers to support and complement my in-house staff for both long- and short-term placements. My relationship with Creative Niche, as both talent and client, has evolved over many years; they are a valued partner. I appreciate the effort Creative Niche has made in understanding the intangibles (e.g., personality, flexibility) I consider important for success on my teams. That effort means the team knows exactly what I am looking for, and they deliver. Thank you, Creative Niche!”
