Major Players is the UK's number one creative, digital and tech recruitment agency. Over 20 years ago we started out with a belief - that a recruitment agency should do far more than simply find people jobs – and a commitment to working with integrity. Now almost 100 strong (and growing!), we are renowned in the industry for a creative, honest, and long-term approach to both clients and candidates. Our consultants work across the full spectrum of digital, creative and tech roles for an impressive range of brands and agencies. We don’t ‘fill jobs’, we build brands and champion the talent that makes them great. Be it for large, renowned agencies or smaller, trailblazing start-ups. We take pride in our long-standing client and candidate relationships and we are dedicated to accelerating the ambitions of talented individuals.

Earn your worth - Major Players are no longer asking for salaries in a bid to help close the gender pay gap We revealed an eye watering 23% pay gap in favour of men in our last salary survey. In a bid to help close the gender pay gap we are now no longer asking any of our candidates for current or previous salary information and refusing to divulge any of our candidates’ pay level when putting forward for jobs.

Freelancers make up 40% of the media workforce and in addition the UK’s creative industries grew by 8.9 per cent in 2016, nearly double that of the UK economy. There’s more demand for freelancers than ever before especially with the advent of the gig economy, but are freelancers treated as well as they could be? We feel that more could be done to improve the working life of a freelancer and we want to show how much we value ours. Major Players presents: The Major Collective What’s it all about? Work through Major Players for at least 3 bookings from registering and you will be automatically enrolled on the scheme.
The Majors was created, in conjunction with The Drum, to celebrate the individuals and teams who have spent the last twelve months at the top of their games. Unlike other industry awards, we also believe in merit without bias. Each category is completely free to enter and our prestigious panel conducts a rigorous judging process, valuing innovative and results-driven work above all else.
