Hello! We're a Global Executive Search firm, aka a unique 'Word of Mouth' talent agency for elite creative, ad, digital, sports & tech talent. We partner with advertising agencies, global dev houses, start -ups, sports agencies and large corporates across the globe, introducing them (possibly you!) to top notch talent. In a nutshell, we head hunt and represent game changing talent and breathe new life into the international advertising recruitment scene. 

All About Us

With our recruitment passion, global networking, hot hunting skills and a new coffee machine, we're all set to find your next creative talent or techie guru. In a nutshell, we think we're a pretty cool company that really gets creatives and we'd love to share our network of talent with you. We operate as a global recruitment business and partner with most of our clients as a virtual recruitment neighbour, finding local or international talent to help grow and develop your business locally or relocating. We are specifically catered to match top level Executive Creative, Digital & Advertising talent but still have the expertise and resources to recruit Mid to Senior level for our clients.

Social Media// Recruiting:

We fully embrace social media to find top talent. After all, this is where successful creatives are and we want to reach out to them before any one else does. Other recruitment agencies may continue on with the old method of using job boards, but we are aware that very few of the 'in demand' talent would spend time putting their CV/portfolio onto a job board. In fact, most of our successful talent are sourced from passive recruiting - finding candidates that are not specifically in the job market, but waiting for someone to approach them face to face/ Skype to Skype to discuss an awesome new opportunity.

Networking// Fresh Talent First Hand
We love to collaborate with the advertising industry. We'd be a pretty old fashioned recruitment agency if we sat in the background and a stranger to the creative world. The best way to learn the new trends in the market and to speak with top talent before any one else, is to attend networking conferences, events and also host our own events to connect creativity. So, this is exactly what we do! We pride ourselves on seeing fresh talent, directly, and make it our priority to introduce companies to them as quickly as possible. We like to get to know our talents background and skills as well as what they like to do on the weekend, so we know exactly what type of environment and team they would thrive in.

It's not all about recruiting and placing after all, it's about finding the perfect match. Not just where a portfolio is concerned, but the right personality and team fit too.

Our Global Connections


We are totally global and we recruit at our finest when we work in this diverse, exciting market. We thrive on different cultures, countries, challenges and talent.

Whether you are around the corner from us or across the miles in Asia, we will partner with you as your virtual recruitment neighbour to help you find your next superstar talent. We're passionate about global recruitment and have the best tools and talent to find the perfect fit. It's just what we love to do and we're good at it too!

Our talent matching has taken us around the globe so far, either whilst living there or placing talent virtually. From making matches and recruiting from the creative, marketing and finance field across the whole of the UK, to finding creatives and IT techies for companies and agencies across Amsterdam and Germany, to placing candidates in Switzerland as well as heavily placing creatives, design, interactive and marketing talent across Singapore, Middle East and China, you get the drill!

We have expertise in a variety of sectors, cultures and countries, so we created The Talent Boom to focus on the international creative recruitment market and serve companies that are serious about finding high-end talent.
