We don’t play
the numbers game…

Our Consultants know that real success in marketing jobs resourcing is about building the right kind of relationships. Ones that are insightful, honest and co-dependent. It’s summed up by our approach, something we call the Real Network. It’s based on a desire to constantly build real-world, real-life relationships. Great placement isn’t about hurling masses of CV’s at clients, and understanding our candidates makes them much more than just a CV on a database. Crucially, we try to meet every candidate and client we feel we can help, whether its finding the next new member of your team or finding a candidate their new job in marketing. Why? You can never underestimate the importance of personality and cultural alignment. Of course, it’s difficult to get personality across on a website, however hard we may try… So let’s talk!

Nick Mortimer, Head of Marketing & eCommerce – YBS

Having worked in recruitment for a number of years I have worked with multiple recruitment firms, receiving mixed service.

Partnering with Better Placed is always a hugely positive experience from start to end. We made the strategic decision to involve their consultants in the early scoping phase of projects as we have found the market insight and consultative approach in which they bring gives us a competitive advantage in the building of profiles and teams. This has always given the consultants a real understanding of what we are looking to drive and a deep understanding of our needs which has paid dividends in the recruitment process.In any recruitment campaign delivery is key, with Better Placed my experience has been that this does not just mean speed but a combination of speed, consultative approach, timely project management and a high quality of the candidates presented.

We continue to partner time and time again with Better Placed because they truly understand our business needs, expectations and market in which we are operating; this has ensured they are truly successful in finding us the best candidates to drive our business forward.
