Showcasing Altitude Digital one step at a time!

Not just any old Digital Recruitment Agency: Welcome to Altitude Digital!

Hello and welcome to our first post, one that will inform most but will irritate others, whoops! We thought we should take this opportunity to introduce ourselves, and explain what we’re all about.

Recruitment is one of THE MOST complained sectors in the business world; poor service, high fees and shocking rebate periods mean that both clients and candidates are just not getting the service they deserve.

We knew the Digital & Media Industry needed a fresh new approach to recruitment,  so we went out there and spoke to CEOs, Head of Marketing, business owners as well as passive candidates on the market to find out what could be done to improve the digital recruitment industry.

But wait, I hear you ask, you’re still a recruitment agency! Why are you any different?

What makes Altitude Digital different?

Well after months of research and speaking to various digital marketing agency owners and CEOs, it seems to all of us that there is a gap in the market for a fair, transparent digital marketing recruitment agency. Everyone I spoke to seems to be fed up paying high recruitment fees that are unrealistic and uncompetitive. Occasionally some people I spoke to, who didn’t understand the game, ended up paying 25%-30% fees! (This is crazy and you are getting ripped off!) We also discovered that some recruitment agencies offer unfair rebate periods, earning most if not all their fee even if the candidate does not stay in the job for long. This is generally a disaster for a business, taking them back to square one with the recruitment process, and causing them to lose months in the process.

What we can do for you

We believe in an alternative solution that shares risk between agency, brand, start-up and the recruiter. Altitude Digital will shake up the digital recruitment agency world and this is why:

  • On our website, we promote our transparent terms and our low fees (15%) – hmmm ask yourself does your current digital recruitment agency show their terms on their website!? If no, then most will try their luck and usually try and flog you a high % fee then negotiate with you down to a lower fee, but still you might end up paying a 20% fee!
  • We offer a 90% at 90-day (3 months) rebate period! hmmm now ask your yourself what does your current digital recruitment agency offer? I bet you it’s a poor sliding 3 month rebate? Have a look and let me know?
  • We offer supportive payment terms over 90 days, to help our clients with their cashflow.
  • We take extra time to cater each recommended candidate to our clients. We won’t just throw a stack of CVs at you!
  • We also don’t work to KPI’s, instead, we ensure every candidate we speak to is right for the job!
  • If you’re a candidate we can offer a lot of support throughout your search. We shall listen to what you want and what you’re looking for. Why? Because we don’t want to waste your time or our clients time.

But getting back to business…we’re never pushy; we work to find out what’s best for our candidates and clients and our number one priority is making sure both parties are happy.

Altitude Digital caters for a wide range of candidates across Search Engine Marketing (PPC, SEO, SEM), Content Marketing, Influencer Marketing, Digital PR, Social Media, Email & CRM, Web Analytics… and basically everything in between!

Altitude Digital was born out of complete frustration with the whole digital recruitment process – from both the candidate and client perspective. We now offer a whole new way of working, one that is fair, supportive and transparent to both those seeking new opportunities, and to those seeking to grow their businesses and trying to fill their vacancies.

I would like to take this opportunity also to say thanks to everyone who was involved! Without you guys we wouldn’t be where we are today!
