Description
We are on the hunt for an Art Director who has fresh ideas, great craft and a broad vision for new ways of doing things. You’re open-minded and embrace new technology. You have a burning desire to win business, awards and recognition, and then celebrate. You’ll be teamed up with an equally ambitious, very friendly Senior Writer and tasked with proactive briefs, day-to-day briefs, challenges and opportunities to create the work you have been wanting to do for ages.

And whilst this might be a relatively relaxed environment, everyone works hard and smart. There’ll be opportunities to work in collaboration with other offices within the global network, on brands across pharmaceutical, government, automotive, FMCG and more. Integration is something this agency has really taken on board so we’d like to see the unexpected, the big ideas that perhaps never made the light of day. And the more digitally tuned you are, the better.

There are, however, a few prerequisites:
You must be a collaborative team player, organised and with the ability to prioritise. Professional in your approach and confident presenting to clients, you’re an excellent communicator, both written and verbal, with a curious mind and a positive attitude. You are self-sufficient on the tools. And last but not least, you happily get stuck into the craft and have the patience to mentor less senior creatives.

                                              We emphasise getting to know our clients so that we clearly understand the type of personalities and the qualities they look for, beyond the necessary skills and experience they seek in a candidate. This creates strong, long lasting relationships with our clients so that we become partners rather than suppliers.

                                              We take time. We listen. We ask questions. We are proactive. We work with you not for you. We are reliable and we are honest.

                                              Whether client or candidate, everyone we work with is treated with the same level of care and dedication. The result is that today many candidates have become our clients, looking to build their own team.

                                              Our attitude to service is second to none and we are truly passionate about what we do.

                                              Thank you both so much for the support and everything you guys have done for me this year. It`s been really refreshing working with people who are genuinely interested in placing me with like minded individuals and agencies. I`ve learnt a lot from some great people this year and am grateful for that.

                                              Corinna is a recruiter from Sydney who I used constantly to find good staff during my time in Sydney and still use now that I`m back in NZ.

                                              If you`re looking for good people don`t hesitate to look her up, she is the most thorough, honest and straight up recruiter you`ll find. I never had to return one of her recruits.

                                              And she`s lovely to boot.

                                              Hi Corinna,

                                              I just wanted say thanks for the chat we had, you gave me some great advice and positive feedback which was very encouraging, it was great,


                                              thanks, Dave.

                                              Welcome-Title
                                              Corinna and Annabel are a pleasure to work with. They have consistently secured me freelance work at a competitive rate. More importantly they place me in roles where I fit culturally – so much so that on several occasions, bookings that were initially a few days turned into weeks, then months.

                                              Cheers,

                                              Dear Corinna,

                                              Thanks so much for meeting me yesterday. I enjoyed our conversation immensely and was very impressed by the thought you had given my situation. I am very glad to have someone like you in my corner.

                                              Welcome-Title

                                              "Culture is everything in this business. It can make people perform out of their skin. Do work they never thought they`d be capable of. It`s the defining difference between a good agency and a great one.

                                              Cultivating it, in an industry where people are fickle, temperamental, passionately individual and wonderfully erratic, is extremely difficult. Just one bad egg entering a culture can bring it down.

                                              When looking for people, it isn`t enough just to hire people who "fit" the culture, you need to bring in people who add to it. It creates an upward spiral.

                                              Hartas & Craig approach each placement with both parties interests at heart. Their value is the magic that happens when the right people are in the right place."

                                              Regards,

                                              Hiya Corinna. After many a phone chat and email, it was great to finally meet you. Really like to thank you for our discussion yesterday.
                                              You`ve given me a far better insight than anyone else into how Sydney and the current marketplace rolls, and where I actually stand amongst it all.
                                              I like your approach. And I love your thoroughness.

                                              Corinna is the best recruiter I`ve ever worked with, without a doubt. As a new arrival to Australia I was quite nervous (and clueless) about entering the business here, but Corinna put me at ease with her honest and thorough approach. I really appreciated that she actually got to know me and my strengths and didn`t rush to put me into the first job opening that came across her desk. As a result of her patience and persistence, we found the right place for me and I`m thrilled.

                                              So have a look, have a think, and give us a ring. Because we`ve got our feet in the blocks, and we want you to be the ones who fire the starter`s pistol.

                                              Corinna,
                                              A quick line to thank you for your time on friday morning.

                                              Meeting you was a breath of fresh air. Your approach to recruitment is wonderfully genuine, and I left your office feeling quite positive about my current search to find a happy new role. I hope you and Annabel are aware of the unique position you hold amongst your competitors here in Sydney - fresh, honest and beautifully boutique.

                                              Hartas & Craig are the real deal.

                                              I started my career in the UK working on global FMCG. When I came home I only had my global TVCs and spec work in my book. While other recruiters worried over a lack of finished work, Corinna was able to gauge my skills and place me in top roles, where I`ve worked happily ever since.

                                              If all creatives hit the brief like this I would retire tomorrow. You always deliver who you say you`re going to, and never waste time.

                                              Dear Corinna and Annabel,

                                              Thanks so much for taking the time to meet with me today. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview and I absolutely love how committed you are to your candidates, in helping to cater for their skills, personal attributes and needs.

                                              Looking forward to hearing from you in regards to any future prospects.

                                              Welcome-Title
                                              For over 10 years now, through different agencies, and now my own, I have always sought Corinna`s help.
                                              Why? Well, she just has an incredible knack of finding the right person at the right time. How? Well, I think she is either a mind-reader or very good at what she does. (I have a feeling it may be a combination of both.)
                                              So? If you`re someone looking for your next move, or if you`re looking for your next someone great, give Corrina (or annabel) a call.

                                              We work in a people business. It’s where our ideas come
                                              from. It’s how our relationships are formed. It’s what makes us get up and come to work in the morning. In that respect finding great people is the most important thing in our business. Finding great people is even harder. That’s why Corinna has been invaluable. She has a unique talent for finding the right people at the right time. Whether that’s the student with potential, or the senior team that wasn’t thinking about moving.

                                              How does she do it? Well as far as I can work out, she listens intently to what you’re after. Invests time in you and your agency to see if they ‘fit’. And she only delivers people she thinks are right. It’s a combination that works.

                                              just wanted to say I`m loving the new social H&C via twitter and Facebook. Some very nice articles and insightful stories. Keep it up.

She was then super considered about matching us with an agency that would immediately feel like ‘home’ – and then she placed us there. We can’t thank her enough. We can’t even put a number against how many people we’ve recommended her to.”

                                              I have worked with Hartas & Craig from both sides of the fence and can confidently say no matter what the recruitment task, I have never been disappointed. As an employee looking for work they offered clear, honest advice, which always helps when looking for the right position. As an employer Hartas & Craig understood what we were looking for and sent through candidates to match.

                                              Cheers

                                              I have been using Corinna and Annabel’s services for over 6 years. During this time they have gained an indepth knowledge into the kind of person who would be great for BMF. I feel they always put a lot of effort into matching the person to our needs and culture. Consequently, many of the excellent people in Creative Services at BMF have been placed by them. And I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.

                                              Thanks again for taking the time to meet with me last Friday. Your feedback and time has helped me this week continue to refine my search and my preparations for future interviews. It was so lovely to get to know you a bit too and I look forward to being in touch!
                                              And again just wanted to thank you for asking good questions (specifically towards what I want to do vs. what I can do), giving advice and explanations and helping me get familiar with the creative industry here in Sydney.

                                              Corinna`s background as a creative allows her to size up talent and instantly figure out where they would shine. Not only that but her integrity and efficiency have earned her some of the best and most respected contacts in the industry. I consider myself extremely lucky to be represented by Hartas and Craig, you`re as passionate about the industry as we are!
