Kairos Media

An award-winning global social-first creative agency that sets the standard for brands in gaming.

The Challenge

  A rapidly growing business with openings in their client service team, which they were struggling to fill directly.
  The agency specialises in social media with a key interest in the esports and gaming sector, which makes it difficult to attract people with a background in the sector at a senior level.
  They had used recruiters to search for them and tried advertising themselves, with mismatched candidates presented and interviewed, which was tiring for the team.

Our Solution

  We took a thorough briefing to understand the uniqueness of the business and what candidates would be best suited for them
– A targeted outreach to 200 candidates within London who had social media and gaming experience.
  After the success of the initial search for a senior account manager, we also placed a senior account director who is winning pitches in excess of £2m across the business

“James has been brilliant to work with across a number of our recent hires at Kairos. More than any recruiter we’ve come across before, it’s clear James understands the industry and what kind of candidates we actually need – and that has ultimately led to some great recent hires.”
