About us

delivering the best talent since 2002

Profiles Creative have been connecting the very best talent in the creative industry to the finest brands and agencies since 2002. We work with the most talented people across Design, Ecommerce, Marketing, PR & Comms and Client Services, partnering with the most innovative agencies, as well as top fashion houses, luxury brands, global retailers, and cutting edge travel & leisure companies.

We’ve got the London market covered, but where we stand out is that we also work across the Home Counties, South West and the wider UK, offering the most comprehensive coverage of any creative recruitment company.

We work on freelance, permanent and contract roles in all of our divisions and sectors, ensuring that we can fulfil all of our client and candidates recruitment needs, all under one roof.

Our story

Profiles' organic growth means that we have always reflected the needs of our clients and candidates ever since day one. This is how we came to look like we do today...

DAY DOT

In the back of a small cottage in Twickenham, overlooking a snow swept lawn and a cat named Gladys, Profiles Creative was born. Welcome to the world!

2002

Profiles Creative grows...

Initially conceived as a pure creative specialist, we soon responded to our clients requests of extending our coverage to include creative's other half, marketing, into the mix. In fact, we were the first recruiter to offer these two complementary services, and in 2004, we went one step further adding PR & Comms to our repertoire, covering all brand communication requirements.

2003

Profiles Creative moves

With a headcount now at 25, we were fast outgrowing our Old Street office and so made the move to sunny Farringdon, which is now home to more than 35 of us. The creative and commercial vibe of the area made it the perfect place for us to settle. 

2005

Our fashion and retail division was born

A £50 thank you voucher from a fashion client was all the encouragement we needed to open an entire Fashion & Retail division. Because who ever has enough socks! Today, we're pleased to have most of the high street as clients, and not just in fashion!

2006

Freelance Forever

Our freelance division was breaking so many records we set up a specialist team dedicated to recruiting for temporary roles, to ensure our clients received a bespoke, faster service. We must have done something right as today it accounts for 50% of our business.

2008

We made it through!

On emerging from the dark days of the recession, we created a specialist eCommerce team. So we recruited the best and brightest industry stars as well as skilled recruiters and the team has been thriving ever since.

2011

World domination awaits

We started running training academies to develop our staff, recruited a dedicated marketing team and were joined by our very own office dog Harvey!

2014

Time for a new look

As we continued to grow, it was time for a facelift so we remodelled our office, refreshed our logo and launched a brand new website.
