About us

For over 30 years, Creative Resource has been at the forefront of recruiting for the creative and marketing sector in the North. We’ve worked with some of the most respected agencies, brands and organisations to help them find the best talent for their teams. We take the time to really understand what both clients and candidates are looking for so that everyone feels they’ve been listened to and their needs met. We’re in it for the long haul. We often find that many of our candidates go on to become our clients. Whether that be through promotion, or them setting up on their own. Our relationships last for decades.
