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

365 day payment terms will wreak havoc on marketing companies

Steve Buss 12th June 2019

It started in the states, it could soon spread here.

30 days become 60 days become 120 days, and now, shock horror, some major clients in the US are demanding 365 day payment terms. Imagine invoicing out on July 1st 2019 and finally getting paid July 1st 2020! Outrageous.

Why should the creative, media and recruitment industries be picked on? Can you see HMRC waiting a year for payment, or your local council or your local builder, of course not.

If these payment terms spread over here and become the norm many brilliant well run businesses will go down, and guess what the cost of marketing and creative services will go up.

How ironic, how stupid.
