Who we are
Hi, I’m Ed. I founded Digital People in 2015, after spending almost two decades managing digital marketing and large-scale digital transformation for brands including Lloyds TSB Insurance, John Lewis, Electrocomponents & Expedia.
As a hiring manager, I often felt underwhelmed by agencies presenting unsuitable candidates and my frustrations were shared by industry peers who also struggled to find good people using recruitment agencies.
At Digital People, we’re digital practitioners first. Our experience gives us a deep understanding of the skills and nuances of digital skillsets, and the knowledge to properly interrogate a candidate’s experience. We help craft the right brief and find the right talent, quickly and efficiently with a focus on quality, not quantity.
In 2016, Digital People won the coveted Best Newcomer award at the Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards. We were recognised for our “commitment to creating a philosophy based around the candidate experience, and exceptional client service levels”

“Ed supported us on one of the key roles in our digital transformation journey. We enjoyed working with Ed and he succeeded in delivering within the project timelines, with the additional challenge of working with stakeholders across several countries. What impressed us was that Ed, true to his word, flew out to Singapore to meet all the candidates in person. Ultimately, the successful hire has settled into our culture and the role well, and has delivered a measurable impact to our marketing results.”

Every industry has cowboys - those that discredit their industry. We're fed up with cowboy recruiters and weary of their recruitment rhetoric.
