At Digital People we specialise in mid-senior roles with a focus on marketing, technology and digital transformation. As 20 year industry veterans turned recruiters we have worked in most roles we now recruit for, which gives us a unique perspective of the industry.

We believe recruitment should be more than a transaction, and that the best experience is based on true expert knowledge coupled with a relentless focus on creating the ‘perfect match’ for all parties.

Whether you’re looking for a superstar, or you’re a rising star looking for the next move, call 0333 772 1563 to see how we can help.

What Our Clients Say About Working With Us

“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 and Ireland.

The business has recently entered a hugely exciting period of digital transformation that has seen it completely transform the way it takes it products and services to market. Digital People were engaged to assess requirements, and to help build an entirely new digital team from scratch.
