Digital veterans turned recruiters, we specialise in marketing, technology & digital transformation roles. In almost 20 years we’ve worked in many roles we now recruit for, which gives us a unique perspective when it comes to finding amazing digital people. We believe recruitment is more than a transaction, and that great recruitment shouldn’t cost the earth.

That’s why we’ve introduced a zero-commission structure for roles up to £50k, with a flat fee of £2,495 + VAT – representing an equivalent percentage based fee of less than 5%.

What We Do

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, as well as Russia & Asia.

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, drastically reducing your recruitment costs.

Flat-Fee Recruitment

With typical fees in the region of 20%, it’s understandable that recruitment can feel expensive, especially for SME’s. So, it’s no surprise when hiring companies turn to several ‘contingency’ agencies at the same time, in the hope of cutting costs.

But the moment you pitch multiple agencies against each other for the same fee, your search becomes little more than a race to reach talent first. The opportunity to assess business requirements, to fully explore a candidate’s motivations, and more importantly, to ensure a great cultural fit – is lost.

So why risk your recruitment process?

At Digital People we believe recruitment should be better. That quality should never be the victim of quantity. And that great recruitment should not cost the earth.

That’s why we’ve introduced a zero-commission service for roles with salaries up to £50,000, with a flat fee of £2,495 + VAT.

You get all the benefits of our award-winning expertise, and the same high level of care and attention to detail that you would expect from our retained service, but more importantly, * with our fee equivalent to a rate of less than 5% (on a salary of £50k), we could save you thousands of pounds on recruitment fees.

Get in touch for details!

* equivalent rates will vary depending on salary level.

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 also highlighted the fact that we had “created a philosophy based around the candidate experience”.
