At Artisan we have amazing consultants which can help speed up the process of job searching. Whilst giving you access to a lot of direct connections and a network of clients. It can also be beneficial to have a consultant searching and matching you with jobs giving you time to focus on other things. We also have a candidate portal which means you only have to upload your résumé and folio once and this is then used for any new job opportunities. 


2. Help and insight into your résumé and folio

With the level of experience in industry and the collaborative approach you are going to get real in depth feedback on the presentation of your work to make sure it stands out to potential employers. Our consultants have a lot of experience recruiting for job roles in the creative and digital space and know exactly what skills companies are looking for - partly because they have been briefed on the job roles - so they can help you present your work best for a specific role.

You also have to consider that many larger companies or experienced agencies only use recruiters which means you get access to heaps of jobs that wouldn’t otherwise be broadcast. Majority of the time a recruiter has roles to fill and once you apply, may already have the perfect job for you.
