For me, dealing with Become is like dealing with the cities best emergency ward. Why? Because the creative industries these days are like a hospital drama. Often there is a dramatic symptom (my finished artist is suddenly sick near an important deadline), I need a cure straight away (I need a replacement for tomorrow 8.30am), I need the best doctor for the job (your best finished artist) and I only have $... to pay for the operation. Become always find the perfect remedy for my situation that delivers vibrant results.
Margot Shearer, Studio Manager, Spin Communications
Being a boutique creative agency we know the importance of having the right team. Become have put the time and effort in to understand our business. And in doing so have always found the right people with the culture and skill set we demand. Which allows us to concentrate on what we do best. The majority of our creatives and account service have come via The Recruitment Business and we believe they are the best going around.
Pete Valentine, Creative Director at Delivery
Become have been one of our most resourceful partners in supporting the fast growth of our young business. No matter what we’ve thrown at them along the way they have always been helpful, responsive and delivered. Whether it be permanent or freelance roles they have always responded immediately.
Sara Salter, saltmine, Managing Director
The team at Become are warm, professional and focussed on getting the right people into the right roles. They make the search and recruitment process not only easy, but a really positive experience for us as clients, and obviously they do the same for their candidates. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone seeking design and creative talent.
Fiona Marcar, Head of Media, Lexis Nexis
We've found Become to be a cut above other agencies. They're good listeners, responsive and super-efficient. They've taken the time to get to know us and, as a result, helped us find the right people for our studio, both for freelance and permanent senior creative roles.

In this business you need people you can rely on, especially when deadlines are tight. Become understand this and that’s why when we have any freelance artwork needs, they are the only company we call upon.
Creative Director & Deputy Managing Director
Kim and Justin at Become have always provided a fast and efficient response to our Freelance needs. Personally I found the service to be friendly, flexible and above all they have provided the quality candidates for the roles we have required. It is nice to deal with a recruitment agency that listens to your needs and responds appropriately. The whole experience fills you with confidence, knowing they will find what you need in the timescale you require.
Become have a great team of consultants onboard, and always work hard to provide the right support we need – they have a really thorough understanding of the industry, and it’s great to know that some of the senior team there have solid hands-on experience themselves from past roles. Whether it’s for a permanent role, ongoing freelance, specialist-skilled freelancers for one-off projects...or a last minute freelance request to simply help us get work done on time; they always take the time to understand exactly what/who we need. When it comes to freelance bookings, they’re always quick and efficient, and so far haven’t failed at finding someone for us. In terms of permanent recruitment, they really do take the time to understand what kind of person we need, and then assess candidates against our brief. Become quickly got to grips with the set up of our team, how we work, the kind of work we do, and also the culture of our company; which has made it so much easier to find the right people.
Become offered a number of very suitable candidates and managed the recruitment process professionally.
I cannot recommend become enough. They always deliver. Constantly supplying the right candidates, both permanent and freelance.
Baber Smith, London
"The team at become has pulled the rabbit from the hat on more than one occasion. Their friendly enthusiasm and understanding of our business makes them the first port of call for all of our freelance needs."
"Last year I dealt with about 15 recruitment firms, including macpeople from both sides of the fence - being recruited then recruiting. Macpeople stood out from the rest and were a delight to work with - they are always professional, knowledgeable about the industry, and really care about getting the right people in the right places. I always felt supported, whether as a jobseeker or as a client. And they always return your calls!"
Over the past seven years I have worked with macpeople in London to source Design and Production staff for our European offices. They respond quickly and enthusiastically, however unreasonable my demands are, and I value the depth of their candidate pool and the willingness they show to solve my problems. They stand out for their excellent coverage of mainstream design talent and the high standard of their consultants."
"It's a pleasure to deal with become. Briefs are responded to quickly, and the caliber of both freelance and permanent staff is always good. They can be relied upon."
"Become have successfully helped us with a number of New Media vacancies. We have found their service to be friendly, quick and professional."
"It is always a pleasure to deal with Become. They manage to make light work of work. Following several successful placements, Become have developed an understanding and appreciation of the kind of person who will be successful here, above and beyond identifying people that are merely capable of doing the job. A knowledgeable, organised, efficient service provider that adds real value!"
McCann Erickson Manchester
I have worked with macpeople for over 8 years and Justin and Kim have provided an excellent service through out this time. When I have been recruiting for freelance or permanent positions they have always found suitable talented candidates that have the right level of ability and creativity to help deliver projects. There's simply nobody out there in recruitment industry offering the same level customer service and understanding of business requirements. I would recommend Mac people to anyone in the design community.
