Orchard recruit for a wide range of vacancies, ranging from artworkers, flash developers and copywriters to account managers, media planners and sales directors. We've been known to turnaround an enquiry to a placement in under an hour!
So why go through an arduous and time consuming recruitment process that might not even be able to provide you with the candidate you're looking for? Let us take the strain.
How are we able to do this? Well, it might be something to do with the fact that we feel that we understand the nature of the business better than many other recruitment agencies. We've been supplying top flight candidates to businesses across the North since 1992-from the largest and most prestigious agencies to the smallest and most creative, and understand that each agency is different in its own unique way.
With Orchard, you'll only ever receive a viable selection of candidates-and if you're not satisfied then we won't charge you a penny. We undertake all of the advertising, shortlisting and testing of candidates and then will only present you with the portfolios of those that we feel meet your specific requirements. So you can be sure that when you interview you'll be able to find the right person for your business.
We pride ourselves in our reputation for excellence. We support regional media organisations and events, including the Big Chip awards, Roses advertising and design, Manchester Social Media Cafe, Fresh, Northern Digital and Manchester Digital. We have national and regional advertising, and a website which is updated daily with new opportunities.
In addition to this, Orchard has a no headhunting policy, unlike many of our competitors. This means that we do not solicit any direct contact with any of your staff and will only respond to applications to ourselves.
With vast industry knowledge in both the advertising and design sectors, we have recruited for some of the largest and most prestigious agencies in the North, including cutting edge digital and creative agencies as well as Blue Chip corporates.
We understand that agencies vary in size, specialisms and structure as well as the fact that understanding an agency is the key to finding the right employee. When time permits, we will always aim to visit an agency to ensure that we have a "first hand" understanding of their culture and requirements.
We recruit from executive to director level, ranging across account management, business development, project management, production, PR and media planning, buying and sales.
