“I find the team at Purple to be intouch with the needs of both the candidate as well as the client. Knowing they are safeguarding the interests of both parties is really important for ensuring we see highly motivated as well as relevant candidates”
Alan White - Operations Director
Purple have some great people working for them. The time that all the Purple consultants invest in us is continual, not just when we put business their way, although they always take time to come in to a face to face brief with permanent business. On freelance Purple respond immediately to all of my last minute requests, whether it be evening or over a weekend and are always more than happy to help. This is often a real godsend in a crisis. They get who we are and the kind of people we look for. Everyone I have dealt with at Purple has always been honest about the candidates they have presented to us and I trust their judgement completely.
Adam Brocklebank - Creative Services Director
“I’ve found Purple to be a great agency they really understand our business and our culture and I thoroughly enjoy working with the Digital team at Purple. They have been successful in helping us find some of our key members of staff across project management, account handling and creative. I look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.”
Tayo Arewa - HR Manager
I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Purple as they have the ability to adapt to all client requirements; are sensitive to confidential issues and approach vacancy requirements with a methodical, systematic and positive approach.
Michael Love - HR Manager
Purple have an incredible ability to find exactly the candidates we are looking for. They respond immediately to all of my last minute requests, are always very happy to help and maintain a great quality and caliber of candidates. We have an incredible relationship with Purple and consider them our no.1 supplier. Would recommend them highly.
Sophia Lengui - Studio Coordinator
“Matt at Purple has excellent communication and analytical skills. He is a true listener and a straight talker. He’s
able to delve deeply into a role, and understand exactly the skills and attributes required. In my opinion, his industry insights are second to none. Of more value still is his excellent ability to then find those rare people that can deliver to that level and beyond. Matt is an absolute pleasure to work with and remains one of my first ports of call. I would not hesitate to recommend him.”
Chris Merrick - Director Visual Communications,
Purple have supplied me with high quality freelancers for a number of years now and I have always found Purple to be extremely responsive, even with requests at very short notice or outside of normal working hours.
Terry Leppard - Head of Studio
Purple helped find me a great candidate with a specific set of skills. I really appreciated meeting face to face to discuss the role and I think that personal effort up front meant we both had the same understanding of the person I needed. As a result I had a really strong shortlist of candidates which made the selection process really quite straightforward.
Richard Marsh - Head of Product and Planning
Purple have consistently sent us the right candidates for the projects briefed, for both permanent and freelance staff. They seem to instructively know what we are looking for! And as a result they have placed several people with us over the years. They are also a real pleasure to work with, not only because of the great level of service they provide – diligent, helpful, honest – but because they have great personalities on board that help make the process fun!
Alexia Cox - Creative Director
My experience of working with Purple was a completely positive one. They understood clearly the calibre of candidate we required and only sent people suitable for the role, and one of those now works for us! I would recommend and will be working with Purple again for future recruitment.
Robin Munden – Production Manager
I’ve worked with Purple for many years and they have always delivered brilliant candidates for us. They invested time to come to our offices and I feel they really get us, understands what we want from not only from a skills perspective but they understands our culture. They know that it’s equally as important for us to recruit people with the right characteristics like drive and ambition as well as having an interesting, down to earth personality . As soon as we are on the lookout for new people I always go to Purple as they maintain a level of consistency I rarely see from other recruiters. They are a great recruitment partner to SAS.
Tracey Anderton - Talent Manager
“Pearlfisher has worked with Purple for over 10 years and in that time Purple have established themselves as one of our leading recruitment partners. Purple have managed to understand the unique culture that exists at Pearlfisher which means the right quality of candidate walks through our door. This is obviously a major factor in a business that lives or dies on the quality of its people.”
Darren Foley - Realisation Director
Our overall experience with Purple is fantastic! They are always happy to help and find us great candidates, even at short notice. They always understand the briefs 100% and I’m always confident that the candidate they recommend will be the right person for the job. We definitely recommend Purple!
Jim Campbell, Production Manager
We have used Purple on numerous occasions to place people at STEEL. Their staff are very quck to understand our requirements & company culture plus the candidates they put forward are of high calibre.
Nicky Applegarth - Head of Client Services
Purple has really taken the time to understand what differentiates us. Due to this, Purple have consistently delivered candidates of high quality & fit. This has resulted in a strong track record of successful placements and Purple becoming a valued recruitment partner for our business.
David Annetts - Partnership Creative Director
Purple are a safe pair of hands when it comes to recruitment.
Time is precious and I haven’t got time to spend interviewing unsuitable candidates
They take the time to listen and look, then only send you candidates that match the brief … a rare gift from my experience.
Bruce Drinkwater - Managing Director
I have worked with Purple for a number of years and they have become a trusted partner to our business. Purple consistently deliver the right people at the right time and with a smile of their faces.
Steve Brady - Production Director
“Purple took the time to come and visit our studio to get a feel for who we are and the kind of people we are looking for – this touch has meant that they consistently provide really good candidates for us to consider.”
Lorna Goodwin - Client Services Director
“Purple is my most trusted recruitment agency and has been for the last two years. They are completely switched on and operate in the present, keeping my recruitment priorities in mind always. They respect my time and send me quality CVs rather than a quantity of CVs which I haven’t got time to review.I will always recommend Purple to colleagues responsible for recruitment and to candidates alike.”
Amanda Leat - Operations Director
“Purple is one of the very few recruitment agencies who gets our industry! Throughout my career I’ve found recruiters to be more pushy and fail to add value, BUT working with purple is completely the opposite. As a candidate you will only be sent suitable roles to your skillset and what one is looking for. The team over at purple are always approachable and never fails to understand one’s point of view.”
Senait Tekie – Freelance Traffic Manager
I’m almost reluctant to write about Purple because I’m terrified our competitors will discover our secret weapon. We have been working with Purple for years and we’ve consistently found them to be head and shoulders above all the other recruiters we use, in terms of the results they deliver for our business and the quality of experience we have in using them
Alex Ranson - Managing Director
“Purple have a great understanding of our agency which, together with their professional aproach and insight of the industry, means that you always put candidates forward who really fit the brief.”
Paula Joannou - HR Manager
We’ve enjoyed a strong working relationship with Purple for many years, as such they have helped us recruit whilst we have continually evolved as an agency. Most recent experience has been superb, the perfect balance of decent, well-fitting candidates whilst never intruding too much into your working day. Well recommended.
