What our clients say

“Digital People filled a niche for us that we weren’t finding elsewhere”

A fourth-generation family-owned business, Arco is the UK’s market-leading supplier of health and safety equipment, offering over 22,000 highly specialist products through its network of over 40 retail branches covering the UK & Ireland.

Arco recently entered a hugely exciting period of change that has seen it completely transform the way it takes its product to market. Digital People were engaged to assess requirements & to help build an entirely new digital team from scratch.

How we helped Arco on their digital transformation journey

Featured Opportunities

Proud winner of the coveted Best Newcomer award at the Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards 2016 Digital People were commended for “displaying sound evidence of an agency entirely in touch with its market”. The judges highlighted our philosophy based around “a strong candidate experience”.

What We Do

Embedded Expertise

For agencies with large-scale ongoing recruitment needs we offer a hugely economical alternative to the traditional percentage-based recruitment model.

Based on-site in your office, as an extension of your in-house team, we can handle all your digital recruitment for you, regardless of the number or seniority of hires, for an all inclusive monthly fee.

Executive Search

For hard-to-fill senior hires, our bespoke Executive Search service provides a strategic combination of advertising and subtle, proactive head-hunting.

No matter how challenging or difficult the brief, we work around the clock to find the most exceptional candidates anywhere in the world to tight deadlines, with recent successful searches in the UK, Europe, the US, Russia & Asia.

Having Digital People come into our business and spend time with both the management team, and the workforce, was a real game changer in the hiring process and gave us great confidence that they understood not just the experience required to do the job, but also the personal attributes and styles that would really fit with our company ethos and values. 

They went to great lengths to seek feedback on how they could find our ideal hire, which led us to finding a Digital Director who we are extremely excited about bringing into our business. It’s been a great experience, and I highly recommend them.”
