Welcome and thank you for taking time to look at The Candidate
website. We hope that you get an excellent understanding of our
agency and how we can help you in future with your recruitment

Managing Partners; Colin Telford has extensive experience of
working and setting up advertising agencies in the North West. His
involvement within digital marketing spans from the year 2000, and
it is this understanding and experience that is invaluable when
appreciating what type of person and what skill set you need for
candidates to be successful in your agency.
We know who you are looking for
Whether it is client facing candidates that you require or hands
on search marketers, we can help source them for you. We understand
that each agency has different requirements and each client has
their own separate set of demands. Therefore the importance of
identifying the right type of person to bring under your agency
umbrella is imperative. It may be an accomplished and experienced
candidate you need to hit the ground running or someone you see
potential in as an entry level candidate to develop, whatever the
case we will ensure we have taken the correct brief and work
alongside you to deliver the right candidate.
We've successfully placed candidates at various levels, from
Account Assistant level right through to Sales Directors. The
reason for our success has come from the combination of market
understanding and taking a detailed brief from our clients. With an
awareness of the importance of the getting the smallest detail
right, we have a rigorous approach where we thoroughly question all
of our agency candidates face to face ahead of all interviews. This
is to ensure that they are knowledgeable about the particular role
and agency they are applying for. This process has led to an
excellent success rate in placing the right candidate in the right
Make the right choice
We know that the unsuccessful hire of a candidate can set any
business back by between 3 & 6 months on average. We are proud
of the fact that 100% of our candidates placed within advertising

recruitment of candidates is a significant financial resource and
as with all purchases, it is essential that the money is spent in
the optimum way.

If I’m known for one thing, it’s my dislike of recruitment agencies. I don’t dislike The Candidate. They didn’t stick many people in front of me. They stuck someone in front of me who was right both in terms of skill set and personality. We took them on. I like that.
Working with The Candidate has enabled us to meet our digital recruitment requirements. They listened to the brief carefully and delivered exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend The Candidate for their great client service and the efficient delivery of quality candidates.
