It’s all about people.

We’re Scoot Recruit.

We’re recruitment consultants specialising in freelance and permanent roles in the creative sector. Our twenty years of recruiting in London and the southeast means we know who gets jobs at design consultancies, advertising agencies and production houses: people. That’s what we’re about, finding good people for good jobs at good companies. Come and see for yourself!


Forget what you’ve been told. You’re not a CV!

In this low-involvement, on-screen, click-and-forget age managing the recruitment process
properly is more of a challenge than ever. CVs, PDF portfolios and personal websites are
important tools but what we think is the absolute key is getting people to talk to people.
Looking past the screen and at the people involved is what we love to do.

We want to get to know you as a person, find out what makes you tick as a professional
and understand what makes up the perfect destination for you. We’ll only tell clients
about you once you’ve been briefed on the job and given us the thumbs-up to go for it.
And we’ll give you as much assistance as you want at every step in the recruitment process.
From your professional presentation, to interview techniques, to weighing up offers –
we’ve got a wealth of experience to draw on to make you a job-getting superhero!

We can help all types of professionals in the creative sector, including (but not limited to):

  • Designers (offline, online and integrated)
  • Artworkers
  • Art directors and copywriters
  • Project, production and creative services people
  • Account execs, managers and directors
  • Support and administrators

And our clients?

We get a kick out of dealing with professional, creative and friendly companies.
Big ad agencies you’ve heard of, creative hotshops you haven’t and a whole host
of fun and funky companies in between.

Our candidates’ thoughts


Let’s be frank here. Recruitment is a challenge.

A challenge that can sometimes tip over into being a pain. We understand this. You want to get on with your real job while still making
sure you attract the best possible talent to your team. That’s where we come in. We’re here to provide a professional service – a way to
secure the best, most relevant and genuinely engaging people while still being able to carry out the role that’s written on your business card.

So we visit your company, breathe in the atmosphere and listen to what’s important to you in your recruitment plans. Then we source and
select the most relevant talent out there for you. Individuals we’ve interviewed, assessed and verified. People we genuinely like, respect
and trust. People that are briefed on your company and your vacancy and are excited to meet you.  We don’t ‘spray and pray’ with
candidates’ CVs, we don’t spam your inboxes, we don’t mail you surveys of dodgy figures that we know you haven’t the time to read.  
We find you great people.

We believe it’s all about people. We hope you agree.

Our clients’ thoughts


The team at Scoot have been happily finding people for creative places
and spaces since 1997 – back in the days of rolodex address books,
databases in filing cabinets and pager numbers on application forms.

Following a few post-graduate years in design studios and marketing departments Dan Marks (our founder) became a recruitment consultant
at the sadly-gone but fondly-remembered creative recruitment agency Management Personnel. He spent the noughties at Folio,
Greythorn and finally Aquent, before taking his experience of the industry to open the doors of Scoot Recruit in 2009.

Since then he and we have been helping talented professionals find the roles they deserve and, on the flip-side, have been helping our
great clients attract the people they need to flourish. We love what we do here and we think that makes us better at it.

Recruitment is an area that has embraced new form of communications to become wildly more efficient in the last twenty years,
but at the same time we still believe that listening and talking never go out of fashion.

If you have the time, call us.

We can have a confidential chat and get to know each other personally. We'd rather you didn't just send us an email, that’s a little impersonal for us and that’s not how Scoot Recruit works. But if you’re too busy right now then use this form to get the ball rolling.
