“Fox Recruitment have been really helpful and approachable when looking for a role in media. Sharon took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted from my next job, unlike some agencies I have dealt with that simply send your CV off to loads of irrelevant roles and you and the employer wastes time. My needs were fully matched and 18 months later I have progressed and am very happy in my job.

If you’re looking for a consultative, specialist recruitment company in media then you should definitely use Fox Recruitment.”
