Specialist marketing, digital & creative recruitment consultancy
  • Think outside the London box
    10 December 2014

    Hold on, some of the top marketing agencies in the UK are based outside of London!

    Yes, it’s hard to think outside the London bubble but if you have been thinking about moving out of the big smoke and into the fresh air, look at areas such as Surrey, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire. These are all amazing places to live.

    But don’t panic, you’re still a short distance away from the big city should you wish to dip in and out.

    Think about it…

    This could be a whole new way of life, room to breath, driving to work without waiting for tubes or buses, being able to bring down your cost of living AND work for a top company or leading agency who can offer a great work life balance. What more could you want?

    FACT: the average price for a property in London costs £539,414.
    London central 1 bedroom apartment £540,000.
    Berkshire 4 bedroom house £550,000.

    I speak to a lot of candidates who have been thinking about this for years but haven’t made the move yet, it’s easy to get caught up in the London way of life and think all of the action happens within Zones 1-7. fishtank have all the knowledge and expertise about opportunities outside of London and can certainly point you in the right direction.

    I currently work with 32 award winning agencies In the Thames valley area alone not to mention Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Dorset and Bristol.

    Before assuming and throwing job descriptions at you, we can listen to what you really want and (if suitable) put you in front of some of the best guys in the business!
