A team with 2 years in, from a direct/social background, enjoy working on those sorts of briefs and trying to win awards within that world rather than TV etc... They need to be energetic and not afraid to have an opinion. No freelancers (only permanent) and try and avoid candidates from agencies like Iris and Dare.
Budget is £35-40k.

James Stedman and Rachael Burkinshaw.
A wonderful team with a really versatile portfolio. Most of their time was spent together at The Marketing Store (3 years), both have lots of social and some direct experience. They have been at freelancing at OgilvyOne, Edelman, Ocatgon, Initials and just finished 7 months at RAPP.
James is a writer (writing a novel on the side, a dark dystopian story, but with a sense of humour running through), he's also the brain behind the 18+ cake shop. A dungeon in Shoreditch filled with spooky sponge cakes and lastly cup cakes (warning they are pretty graphic). Rachel is a singer on the side and plays at gigs and writes music.
Maria Kanstad & Elise Jansen
We helped them move over from Oslo to TBWA earlier this year and I know they would love to meeting you. They left their perm job for a 6-month placement at TBWA with Andy Jex and I know they are keen to stay in London. They come with a good deal of experience, and as a Nordic team, they are very switched on when it comes to media and ideas, especially in the social space. They graduated in 2016 and spent over a year at Futatsu before then moving over to London.
Georgia Stephenson & Dan Stubbs
Only a few years in - they were hired at Isobel from placement but they are confident and I think have done really well and made some really well executed work with what they have had - small budgets and not particularly big brands! I love the Tech will Save us work they did of their own back…writing, art directing, producing it too. And they have lots of interesting things going on outside the day day stuff too which I always think makes teams like this really interesting to meet. They have lots of social experience and would love to take you through that in person.
Rosie Gills and Sean Curran
They did placements at a few places together: Isobel, WCRS, Saatchi & Saatchi, Mcgarrybowen London, RKCR before taking a job with Kastners & Partners being promised lots of autonomy on the Red Bull account. Sadly this didn't happen and as their CD's left they feel its time to look elsewhere. They left Kastners after 2 years to go freelance. They want to be challenged and want to get back into an agency that produces more work across more brands. They are proactive and have a great attitude to briefs, never saying no to anything and always looking to make the best out of them.
