We Are Stopgap

Based in Richmond, we are Stopgap. We are the UK's leading independent marketing recruitment agency. We have always been a trailblazer in the marketing recruitment space since 1993 which has helped make us one of the longest surviving recruitment businesses of our type, but, more importantly one that has an unrivalled reputation for being an agency people enjoy working in and with. We often say, it is not what we do but how we do it that makes the difference and this stems from our firm belief everyone in our organisation is valued, through a supportive and collaborative work culture to be the best they can be.

At Stopgap, we do things differently, our mission is for our people to thrive and flourish. We are not commission based, instead we offer a competitive salary and generous bonus’, work colleagues who care and we have an engaging and fun work culture.

Run by passionate recruiters and expert ex-marketers, we work hard to challenge the recruitment industry's reputation for bad practice and poor service. Our teams focus on B2C, B2B, Agency & Creative, Digital Tech, Market Research and Executive level.
