Recent success

“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. They understood our unique needs and were able to present talent that not only had the necessary job skills but would also be the right fit.”

Director, Marketing and Communications
Non-For-Profit organization

“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!”

Manager, Creative Services

I had been trying to hire a Production Manager for three months with our internal team, and just wasn't getting the candidate I needed. It's a very unique role, so I approached Creative Niche because they understand the nuances within this role to go in the right places to find the ideal candidate. The team was always quick to respond, and within three weeks of our first conversation, I had hired a new Production Manager!”

Director, Production
Wealth and Asset Management

“We couldn't be happier with the exceptional talent Creative Niche delivered. They found us not one, but two incredible professionals - a Senior Marketing, Communications & Public Affairs Executive, and a Social Media Marketing Manager. Their approach, deep industry knowledge, and commitment to our needs were evident throughout the process. These hires have already made a significant impact on our team, and we're grateful for their expertise. I highly recommend their services.”

Chief Executive Officer

“The Creative Niche team have truly been a massive support for our business. They’ve helped us source several contractors – all of them had the skills to hit the ground running, but also were able to add incremental value and perspective from their own diverse experience. They’ve been such successful candidates that most of them have transitioned to join our team as full time employees, a true testament to the eye for talent and fit that the Creative Niche team has delivered with its recommendations.”

Director, Social Media
Financial Institution

“Creative Niche has been a tremendous support to us at Huge for years, having filled over 50 roles across digital, content, UX/UI, and project management. It can be challenging to find the right person, but the team takes the stress away and always finds us the perfect fit! From their communication to sourcing to processing, they are one of the best creative recruitment agencies and we look forward to continued success with them.”

Global Chief Client Partner

"A huge thank you to your efforts as it relates to the development of our team! You not only helped find so many of the amazingly talented people who now make up our ranks but more importantly, you helped us articulate our vision of the talent offering behind our agency brand. You were right there by our side every step of the way. Looking forward to this next chapter of our relationship!"

EVP & Managing Director

“I am so happy that I had your support in finding us a star candidate who is doing so well in her role! With seven months in, she's already contributed so much. As my first time working with a recruitment agency, I have been really impressed with the result and my experience has been nothing but positive. I loved my dedicated CN team’s open communication, shared feedback and suggestions, and the quality of talent presented!”
