Where it all began

Established in 2009 as the only recruitment consultancy outside of London that exclusively specialised
in digital recruitment, the Little Black Book has grown and developed to become the North’s premiere
destination for marketing, media, creative and digital talent.

Our team of recruitment experts work to match passionate and successful candidates of all stripes with equally passionate and successful clients right here in our home turf of Manchester, across the rest of the UK and beyond.

Our “It’s who you know” adage is anything but an empty saying. Our team is solely composed of marketing and media veterans, with years of experience under their belts. Over the years, we’ve gotten to know the right people in all the right places, meaning that we can whisper the right words into the right ears and give both candidates and clients the best possible shot at an ideal match.

Rapport building and nurturing are instrumental in this process, as you might imagine, and so is our multichannel approach emphasising social media, referrals and headhunting as much as traditional advertising. In our digital age, the landscape is ever-evolving, so we refuse to stand still and rely on old habits. Luckily, as an independent agency, we can adapt and evolve as we see fit.

We are incredibly proud of the way that we work. Our approach is tailored to each and every client and candidate, driven by the relationships we work tirelessly to build – leading to a steady stream of both repeat and completely new business.

What they say

Managing Director,
Code Computerlove

We find The Little Black Book great! They know the industry and work hard at knowing the people in it. They are professional, honest and efficient; they say when they can help you and don’t bullshit when they can’t. In my opinion, TLBBA sets a lead that I wish other recruiters would follow.

Traffic Manager, TBWAManchester

The Little Black Book listen to our requirements and tailor candidates really well to our needs. We’ve been working together for a good while and rate them as a safe pair of hands when it comes to sourcing last minute design & development needs. A competitive and friendly service for any agency.

Managing Director, Epiphany Solutions

“We have engaged The Little Black Book Agency for a number of roles, most recently for a Client Services Manager. Thanks to their efficiency and their understanding of our company and its needs, we found the whole recruitment process painless. We now have an excellent addition to our team, who is making a real difference.”
