About us

Ten years ago (it seems like only yesterday) we were simply a small group of experienced yet rather frustrated creative recruiters about to launch a brand new business. RedSofa. We were determined to show the world we could do a better job than the competition: and have fun at the same time.

Our philosophy was very simple only hire the very best and watch them and the business flourish. By 2014 we were proud to be acclaimed Europe's fastest growing and most respected Creative Recruitment Agency. A year later we opened our Berlin office.

Of course there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and building long-term personal relationships, but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior art workers to global CEOs. Our expertise in every area is widely regarded as being unequalled. IMPRINT
