AQUENT has spent 25 years getting better and better at what we do: Creative and Marketing Staffing. We live it, we breath it – and we thrive.

Several years ago, we thought “Hey, why not grow a special team dedicated to servicing some of our hippest design and marketing customers?” And thus, the Talent Agent, was born!

AQUENT knew this role would be critical to our growth, so this Talent Agent has some big responsibilities:

· Build and maintain strong network of “A-List” Creative Talent through social media and face-to-face networking
· Champion those Talent by actively marketing them to clients and internal sales teams
· Expand and leverage your Creative subject matter expertise to match the best Talent with the needs of our clients
· Deliver fanatical customer service through diligent and consistent quality checks with clients and Talent
· Actively participate and network with professionals within the design community to stay on top of industry trends and share your knowledge with others
· Respond with remarkable speed and quality to incoming client requests while proactively finding work for Talent on an ongoing basis
· Exceed customer and internal expectations by providing daily communication and creative solutions to problems, always bringing a can-do attitude
· Be an incredible team player who works hard to help our team, our Talent, and our clients as we all get smarter and grow, grow, grow!


- A minimum of 3 years of professional recruiting experience working as part of a team, interacting directly with internal or external clients (account management experience is great)
- Experience sourcing talent in retail, health & beauty, cosmetics or consumer packaged goods sectors
- Experienced in managing a '360 desk' (business development AND recruiting)
- Interactive design and/or technology experience would make us want you even more
- Experience or genuine interest in the Marketing or Creative space is ideal
