Recognising the benefits that diversity & inclusion
Recognising the benefits that diversity & inclusion brings to an organisation we are focusing on representing some of best black & ethnic minorities in the Digital & Creative sectors.
How we build trust in bridging the diversity gap
Our expertise in video allows us to accelerate trust between employers and the candidates in our network by involving our clients in the video job descriptions, resulting in making it easier for black & minority talent from the digital & creative sectors to see & hear about the culture of our clients’ organisations who are committed to improving ED&I in the workplace.
Recognising it’s become harder & harder to reach engage, interest Digital professionals due to the sheer volume of opportunities and lack of good talent posting a job description is no longer enough if you want the best Talent, we bring our clients vacancies to life with video, and reach out one by one to “Hard to Find Talent” and place your video job description directly onto the candidate’s smartphone or device through LinkedIn email What’s App or text message.

Born & bred in Luton, Bedfordshire to Caribbean parents, both my folks are from the beautiful island of St Kitts, they returned 25 years ago, early retirement.

Newcastle FC, I I’ve been a supporter since the early 90’s, my son and I saw them draw v versus Man Utd at St James’ Park in December 2021
And I love a good belly laugh with my friends, family & people tat know me, life is too short to be too serious all the time.
Current focus, I’m committed to levelling the playing field for black & ethnic digital talent, why?…….because only 7% of black & ethnic population occupy roles in the digital sector, therefore over the last 2 years I have become an ED&I advocate, focused on ensuring everyone can exceed their goals in the digital sector.
Shortly after graduating from University for the Creative Arts with a degree in Advertising, I threw myself into the industry looking for ways to be seen, get noticed. Why did I choose to do Advertising? Well, I believe that advertising is an art form of human communication, it’s the art of persuasion of drawing a person in, grabbing their attention. I believe that the best way to grab people, is by being different and doing the opposite to what everyone else is doing, while staying strategically on track to targets and final goals.
Technology, is an ever growing sector and it provides us all with an incredible amount of freedom for our creative juices to produce and share content with just a click of a button. Merging advertising and technology allows us to do so much and really make an impact on each other.
Came across Ian at a networking group and approached him to seek advice about the industry right after graduation and what tips could he give me in order to get hired. He was full of great ideas and shortly after our conversation, he came back to me to see if I would like to help him out with his great concept within the recruitment industry of Video Job Descriptions. Of course I jumped at it, started off with editing them and a little bit down the line, now, working with him to make a BANG in the recruitment industry! It’s an exciting time of my life and we are sure to change the game when it comes to recruiting and connecting brands, with some great talent, watch this space!
