For more than twenty-five years Creative Search Consultants has played an integral role in the advertising community, bringing elite creative talent together with the world’s most renowned agencies and boutiques.

However, our higher purpose involves much more than simply placing talent with an agency. We believe in getting to know our clients and the talent we represent, developing a deep understanding of their unique needs and in the process creating a positive and sustainable partnership.

As a team of experienced advertising professionals that have worked across a variety of disciplines, our team brings a vast knowledge of the business into every relationship we create.

Our process begins with honest dialogue and the meaningful investment we make to understand every facet of our client’s needs and the ambitions of those we represent. We believe approachability, collaboration, transparency and integrity set the foundation for enduring relationships. And ultimately, this is what we seek to create: a partnership where we can listen, advise, educate and hopefully inspire you through the life of your career.
