Declan Green ,
Account Manager

“..I was regularly updated and kept in the loop, rather than me chasing which I personally find rare within the recruitment sector. There are a lot of recruiters out there, but few provide the continuous support and personal approach that Creative Resource do. If I found myself seeking new employment in the future they would be the first people I'd approach and always one I'd recommend. ”

Jackie Williams

“Phil is a one-of-a-kind recruiter, that's for sure. He gets 'people'. Something that (sadly) is a rare trait in many recruiters in the creative sector. Importantly, he truly believes in the sector he services - and the people who work in it. The North West creative scene wouldn't be the same without him.”

David Campbell ,
Executive Creative Director

“Creative Resource has been really helpful and supportive throughout the process of finding me a new role, they did a great job of understanding who I am and what I was looking for. They were always there to speak to for feedback and reassurance which made me feel confident in my interview and during my trial.”
