Specialist marketing, digital & creative recruitment consultancy
 

If you know what’s what, we know who’s who!

fishtank are an established boutique consultancy that specialise in Marketing, Digital & Creative recruitment. Our consultants cover specific geographical locations which allows us to have excellent market knowledge and build close relationships with both our candidates and our clients. The main regions that we cover include the South & South West and Thames Valley & Home Counties.  fishtank was founded in 2003 by Ellie O’Neill with the belief that recruitment is essentially a service industry. The idea came while Ellie was searching for her next role in PR where she found her experience working with agencies somewhat disappointing. She felt a certain level of the service element seemed to have disappeared from the industry so she therefore set out to try and approach recruitment with a fresh and professional manner. 11 years on and fishtank is still going strong. 

We are a passionate and friendly bunch who are immensely proud of our success over the last 11 years. We pride ourselves on the consistent high quality of service that we deliver, highlighted by the great relationships we've built along the way and continue to grow.  Because we appreciate that every business has different needs and every candidate has contrasting requirements, we offer a consultative and honest approach and never have a 'one size fits all' attitude. We're here to make the job search as easy as possible and place the same level of importance on the person who is looking to fill a vacancy as the person who is hoping to be the one to fill it.   Why do we do all this? Because there is nothing more rewarding than helping a candidate find their dream job, whilst watching our clients succeed in growing their business through recruiting the right staff. Don't just take our word for it though! Read some of our recent testimonials.

Senior Recruitment Consultant
BIO | FUN FACTS

After starting her career in PR and Communications, Ellie found a niche in the market and set up a boutique recruitment agency called fishtank. From day one it has always had a clear objective; to provide a professional, friendly and approachable recruitment service to the marketing and communications industries.

“fishtank was founded in 2003 with the belief that recruitment is essentially a service industry. However, from my experience working with agencies when I was looking for my next move in PR, I felt a certain level of the service element seemed to have disappeared from the industry. I therefore wanted to try to approach recruitment with a fresh and professional manner.”

Our hard work paid off and we were ecstatic to have been nominated and become a finalist at the MARA Awards 2010 (Marketing and Advertising Recruitment Awards organised by Only Marketing) - Best Candidate Experience and Best Small Agency.
