about us

The dahling offering was initiated and formed in the summer of 2010. Born out of a desire to be an agency that purely specialised in placing creatives, and not trying to be all things to all people. To have a personal touch, a focus and be the preferred partner within the creative sphere.

Our ongoing aspiration then is to keep delivering on the initial promise of the company. Creating an entity that has a more personal touch, that focuses on developing careers rather than simply placing staff, ensuring
that the knowledge honed over the years is used to pattern-match the right talent with the right opportunity.


Why? Having met, spoken and spent many hours discussing the needs of creative specialists within the industry, the feeling was that they enjoyed the way dahling set about dealing with them; in a more personal manner. Developing lasting relationships that were more trusted and individual.


We believe it is important to understand more than just the brief. We feel that a successful working relationship means having a thorough understanding of the culture, history, location and personalities that make up your business. We like to know what makes you tick, so that we can introduce you to people who’ll add real value to your organisation.

Below are some of the companies we’ve worked with


Our candidates include Creative Directors, Art Directors, Copywriters, Designers and Artworkers.
We work closely with them to understand exactly what they want and exactly what they need. These two aren’t always the same thing. We offer guidance and advice before introducing them to the clients who we think will be absolutely right for them.

Over the years this approach has enabled us to develop an enormous database of the best creative talent from the UK and overseas. We keep track of their careers and we’re delighted to say that, thanks to us, they keep going from strength to strength.

And thanks to them, so do we.

Our candidates are sourced from a mixture of expert referrals, industry knowledge and the odd Campaign advert now and again. We believe that this tailored approach not only reflects the dahling business principles but also ensures that our client briefs are fulfilled by the right talent.

As part of this process we take the time to meet with each and every one of our candidates, to understand what makes them tick, their history and their desired future. We assist them in developing not only their careers but also their credentials; offering specialist advice on how they interact, both on and off paper, in a professional manner.

Over the years this approach has enabled us to develop an extensive and targeted database of the best creative talent from across the country and around the globe. Allowing us to keep track of how our candidates careers progress and the specific skill sets that they learn along the way.
