Well Placed  

When you’re hiring for any marketing, tech, communications or creative position, you never what you’ve got until you start working with someone. Their portfolio may look awesome, they interviewed really well and seemed to understand the company only to turn out to be a nightmare employee.

The best people to hire are people who are already working. Well Placed brings you a different kind of freelancer; one who can see things from the business owner’s perspective, one who is looking for a full-time position. They’re not leveraging job interviews to get a better salary with their current job. They’re looking for their fit, the next best step in their career. They’re not driven by bitterness or looking to abandon their current job, they’re looking for their perfect match.

Well Placed puts your recruitment dollars to work immediately. We can often have candidates to you as fast as 48 hours who can start on your projects while you get to see if they’re a good fit.
