There's a recruitment revolution happening - are you in?

In an industry often criticised for its impersonal approach and high-pressure tactics, Northern Talent stands to revolutionise the recruitment world. As the UK's first certified Kind© recruiter, we're on a mission to revolutionise the recruitment world, one placement at a time.

Our ethos is simple yet powerful: everything we do is with purpose, for people and the planet.


Goodbye to the Old Ways of Recruitment

Gone are the days of ridiculous fees, gazumping clients and candidates, black-hat tactics, and charging people for the pleasure of working with us. Our approach is different. We believe in transparency, fairness, and integrity. Our candidates choose to work with us because they share our values. Who, after all, wants to work in a toxic environment? Not us, cheers.


The North's Creative and Tech Talent

The North of England is a melting pot of creative and tech talent, with many agencies across the UK eager to tap into this resource. Yet, until now, this talent has often been undervalued, snapped up for less than the cost of an oat milk latte at Pret – well, almost! At Northern Talent, we recognise the true value of this talent and ensure they are rewarded fairly for their skills and creativity.


A Stringent Screening Process

We take pride in our stringent screening process, allowing us to sift through CVs so you don't have to. Our talent comes not just with the right skillset but also the perfect cultural fit, thanks to Northern Talent specialists who have been building and retaining high-performing talent for more than 20 years.

More Than Just Recruitment

At Northern Talent, we're more than just recruiters; we're super-friendly experts who are deeply invested in the success of both our clients and candidates. Unlike many specialist recruitment agencies backed by large digital firms, we ensure our talent pool remains exclusive to our clients. This means the CVs we send you haven't been circulated among multiple senior digital agency leaders. Our integrity and transparency set us apart, ensuring you receive the best possible talent without the usual industry pitfalls.


Our Commitment to Kindness

Our commitment extends beyond recruitment. We donate 10% of our profits to Shelter and the North East Terrier and Small Breed Rescue Centres, reflecting our dedication to making the UK a kinder, healthier place. This commitment to social responsibility is at the heart of everything we do.

The Northern Talent Confidentiality Agreement

We understand the importance of confidentiality in the recruitment process. All of our consultants are bound by the Northern Talent confidentiality agreement, ensuring client and candidate data is never disclosed to unauthorised parties. This commitment to privacy and discretion is fundamental to our approach.

The Digital Marketing and Tech Talent Pool

We have the digital marketing and tech talent pool sewn up, with many candidates working with us exclusively on their next position. This exclusivity ensures our clients have access to the top talent in the industry, ready to make a real impact in their new roles.

Additionally, we encourage readers to explore online data, videos, and thought pieces discussing the stress and anxiety many experience when searching for new roles, working with recruiters, and the challenges faced by hiring managers and department leads.
