Jupiter is a boutique full service recruitment communications agency.

We're extremely good at making people want to work with you.




Jupiter has been one of the UK’s leading communications businesses for nearly 25 years. We have worked with many major organisations helping them to successfully attract, recruit and have ongoing internal dialogue with their employees.

We offer the research capability, EVP development, creativity and measurability to help you articulate, shape, communicate and evaluate your employee experience. We help ensure that every employee can identify with your company values, vision and mission- through your message, tone of voice and visual presence. We tailor this approach to suit every client; there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach with Jupiter.

Pioneers of ‘the candidate journey’ it was Jupiter that became the first and still one of the only communications agencies to gather together our service offering and re-define our services into a clear and cohesive support path. This allows our clients to benefit from clear internal and external branding and messages at every stage of the communications process - from employer branding through to onboarding and ongoing employee engagement. It has re-defined our own recruitment process, allowing us to recruit and retain some of the most talented individuals in their respective fields.

We quickly and efficiently get on with getting things done - we always meet your deadlines and deliver work that’s on time and on budget. We’re innovators across all comms platforms and like to leave a big impression.

Bespoke HR and Recruitment solutions tailored to the size, budget and ambitions of businesses within the digital creative sectors. Whatever stage your business is currently at; and wherever it needs to go; your people within it are the key ingredients. 

A blended to suit your business, HR and recruitment mix that is a real partner solution. Makes sense if you think about it. 

Take the traditional HR consultant or Recruitment Agency models and turn them on their head, spin them round and forget what you already know. We have successfully worked with growing and established businesses to save their employee pain, proactively risk manage and protect them from whopping great recruitment fees. How do we do it?

Simple. We listen and focus on your business needs for both now and in the future. Work within your budgets and be sat on-site when you need us, or off-site when you need us to not be. Our offices are also great escapes for those confidential meetings you don't want to have; and although most of our time is spent in Central Manchester, Media City or the Sharp Projects, Wilmslow is a great base.

Engaging with your employees, we are real people (less jargon) We are sat in your office/studio on a regular basis and/or available by phone/email as you need. We are implementing your handbooks, improving HR process or simply hand holding through the more sticky situations.

Our CIPD fully qualified HR experts will ensure you are looked after and yes, it is the same person for your business - none of this dealing with 10 different people!. They, combined with our backoffice recruitment function, will look after your current team and supply you with new employees. The cherry on top of the icing is that - compared to agency fees of 10-15% - we will save you enough money to take the growth leaps you really need. Or to spend on team incentives.

One last thing - as I know you are thinking what is their typical client?- not one of our clients is the same. Some like us to manage their HR and assess recruits applying psychometrics, others have us running a full HR function and recruiting ad-hoc, others simply like us to pop in once a month to ensure that all the essentials are in place and disaster is prevented. 

Long retention of employees is obviously what we aim for. Forget what you know about recruitment and think about it from our point of view. We don't want to be watching employees walk away when we have sourced them, inducted them, appraised them with you and put their progression plans into your business.

Real HR, without fluff. Expert recruitment, without pain.

Quite simply, The Candidate was formed due to market demand from both clients and candidates for a better quality of service. We believe that we can offer this by merging our recruitment and media backgrounds with both experience and talent.

What we do...

Without innovation, creativity and entrepreneurialism, the UK would be absent of the demand for such a specialised range of skilled media, marketing and sales candidates. Thankfully these elements are rife across our client base and through our extensive experience we can relate to the quality of candidate required to build secure businesses and departments within.
Whether it is managing growth, staff turnover or stability we can work to place the ideal candidate in your environment through a thorough brief and understanding of the requirements. We understand that the current economic recovery requires considered and decisive actions to maintain a healthy business and we will work with you on every level to provide candidates who can help achieve these critical objectives.
Our desire is to professionally represent and promote you to our candidate base. Each role's individual recruitment process is unique and influenced by multiple factors throughout. We simplify this for you, add value accordingly and ensure effective sourcing and candidate selection. The aim is a value driven proposition delivering quality results and repeat custom. 

How we do it...

With a unique blend of Recruitment and Media skills, the founders of this business believe in the “Law of the Vital Few” meaning that they will represent the top candidates in the field of their specialism.
By sensitively yet proactively representing candidates, we believe in our proven search and selection process to deliver those that are vital to each organisation at the right time.
Our vision is to increase the productivity of our client’s business through the introduction and retention of a quality and skilled employee base. This comes from the identification and presentation of the UK’s leading media, marketing and sales candidates.
