Talk to the specialists in digital and creative recruitment

Ever briefed a recruitment company to find you a talented copywriter but ended up interviewing a graduate designer? Or asked for a web developer but got sent people who didn’t know their front end from their back end?  Okay, maybe we're exaggerating a little, but you get the idea. And you’ve probably been there.

At The Book, we know the creative and digital industry inside out because, well, that's what we recruit for - and we have done since 2004. Whether you want to recruit someone with creative or technical skills (or a bit of both), senior or junior, freelance or permanent, agency or client side, at The Book we only recruit candidates that are at the top of their game. It’s what keeps our clients coming back to us time and time again.

We love to work with businesses from all sectors and of all sizes, from global brands to innovative start-ups and creative agencies, we’ll find the right person to fit into any team.

We invest heavily in our people development and technology, to make sure we find the very best talent. This is why we’re part of the LinkedIn Global Partner Program; one of a very small number of recruitment businesses in the UK.

Brief us

Looking to recruit?

We know the creative and technical industry inside out. We are dedicated to finding our clients the perfect candidate, so if the candidates don't match your requirements, we simply would not put them forward. So, if you’re looking for someone to join your team, we’d be delighted to talk it through.

What our clients say


We obviously think we're great, but don't just take our word for it, here's what some of our clients had to say about us here at The Book!

"Having been both a hirer and a prospective candidate and contractor myself, I have extensive exposure and experience in dealing with recruitment consultants. Many technical recruitment consultants lack the fundamental technical knowledge required to make them truly useful in hiring technical staff...Safe to say The Book gets it and provided me with 2 candidates within hours of our initial phone call. Of those 2 candidates, one looked like a good match and within a week of contracting with The Book we had a job offer accepted...I'm really happy."

-Lead Developer, Leeds

“The Book consistently answers briefs accurately and provide a creative recruitment service based on quality not quantity, and a friendly, reliable service that takes the pain out of the recruitment process. I thoroughly recommend.”

-Creative Director, Leeds

“Emma is a brilliant communicator and very pro-active, constantly keeping me up-to-date and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. She got great results and I’d recommend her to anyone!”
