It’s 2003, the iPod is all the rage, we’re all on Mac OS Panther, LinkedIn doesn’t exist and Flash Devs are like gold dust.
A boutique recruitment business is starting day one of trading and at the helm are Debra and Paul - our two incredible Founders. Side note… At this point, Debra still thinks we are called Creative Profiles but Paul does a secret u-turn at the final minute of registration and christens us PROFILES CREATIVE!
20 years on - we are celebrating 2 decades of phenomenal colleagues, client partners, candidates, freelancers, friends and mentors of our still boutique but perfectly formed business.
I really want to acknowledge the team who have been with us for such a big slice of that journey. Our team of Directors and Partner Consultants - 3 of whom James, Nicola & Liza are celebrating 10 years this year and Lucy and Sunni, let’s not age ourselves by saying how long we’ve been together! I couldn’t do it without you and Lee by my side and I’m grateful for you and the rest of our fabulous team (I would love to name check all of you!) every, single, day.
We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have built partnerships with some of the best and brightest brands, agencies and freelancers in the business. Over a third of our talent and client community has been with us for 10 years and many more go right back to the start. A huge, giant, massive thank you to all of you for your business, loyalty and continued support.
Soooo what do you do to celebrate turning 20? We decided to invest in growth and to expand our reach so I’m mega proud and excited to announce that in partnership with the bloomin’ brilliant Nao Madison we have launched our sister business, Triibe Talent, a specialist UX / Product / Tech / Creative Recruitment agency.
HeadQuartered from Miami, Triibe Talent will be working with clients across the US, building a community of people, diverse and inclusive and bound by vision and talent, to deliver integrated services supporting recruitment and helping to deliver internal change.
I truly can’t wait to see what the next year will bring for both businesses.
Thank you again for all of the advice and for the amazing support and mentorship we’ve had from so many great minds over the years which has brought us to this point.
WELL DONE if you got this far. Good job I’ll never be up for an Oscar!
