  • Qubit

    Sphere’s professionalism and dedication to finding the right talent for our business has kept us coming back over the years. Sphere have been a great partner to have as we have scaled the business.

    MD EMEA, Qubit
  • GroupM

    Ed's whole business model is set up to move in an agile fashion and reflect the landscape of fast paced media and tech environments. Sphere are able to “tap into” passive candidate communities in a way that our other partners can’t… I see Sphere as a game changer in this space and I'm glad we get to play the same game together.

    Emy Rumble-Mettle, GroupM
  • Time inc

    Rebecca has recruited freelance Project Managers for me on a number of occasions. She's always quick to understand and respond to a brief, and I have total trust in her recommendations - testament to her experience and knowledge of the market

    Projects Director, Time Inc
  • Mediacom

    I have worked closely with Sphere for a number of years now. The consultants are completely invested in delivering a superior service and continually provide exceptional candidates who understand the complex layers of the media landscape. I have no hesitation recommending their services as their approach is transparent and effective

    Talent Acquisition Lead, Mediacom
  • Urban Outfitters

    One of the hardest working companies I have ever met. They are always available, happy to help and most importantly, they only have the best interests in mind for their clients. Their advice is outstanding, beyond my expectations, and I will definitely recommend working with Sphere.

    Head of Talent, Urban Outfitters
  • Innergy

    I work with a number of award winning businesses and business leaders who have differentiated themselves from the competition through delivering consistently excellent customer experiences. I would not hesitate to (and don’t) describe and use Sphere as the benchmark for customer centricity and customer experience leadership.

    Gordon Stoddart, Innergy
  • Vinted

    When I moved from London to Berlin I found the agencies unable to get to grips with what we needed so reached out to the team at Sphere International. They fully understood the requirements for the role and delivered at speed. Within hours they'd managed to find a number of candidates who fitted the profile we were looking for, speeding up the whole process

    Eddy Jackson, Head of Marketing, Vinted
  • Collective

    I love working with Sam and the Graduate team. She got to know me and my business, getting familiar with our roles and environment. As a result, Sam only introduces me to candidates that are a good fit for my team and who would thrive at the company.

    Senior Manager, Ad Ops & Client Services, Collective
  • Venatus
