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

A Human Touch

Steve Buss 19th June 2020

Recently, I’ve read a few accounts concerning frustrations around receiving ‘automated responses’, in particular rejection emails for jobs applied for.

In these unprecedented times, many people who are not so lucky to be working deserve a dignified response with a human feel.  Rejection is painful enough, so let’s not under-estimate the impact this can have on morale.

That said, we also have to appreciate that, given the volume of applications for some companies, it’s not always possible to give personalised feedback.  However, we could do well to find a balance and where possible promote a mindful and individual approach.

Right now, it’s a complex picture out there, notwithstanding the uncertainty concerning how and when markets will recover.

A little empathy goes a long way, as does a personal human touch!
