I’m Kris Van Wellen, Director of Saffa Associates, a new specialist Digital Marketing Recruitment Agency. Based in Nottingham, we recruit nationwide for all Digital, Marketing & Creative roles.
For the last 7 years, I’ve been working for traditional recruitment companies, where the focus is always on high volume! The incessant demands to make a crazy amount of sales calls, register as many candidates as possible, etc. Just push volume! Quality beats quantity every time so I knew I was working in an out of date model. It’s so out of date that it actually stops you being able to successfully recruit. I knew it could be done better!
I once went to a presentation with the inspiring Karren Brady, who said “entrepreneurs either bring a new idea to market or remodel an existing idea that they know can work better” and so, Saffa Associates was born. We are not big, we are just clever!
For the last 3 months I’ve been working tirelessly with a brilliant team, planning and building a company. Today, we went live. I’m really lucky to genuinely love what I do and now I’m doing it under my own terms, which I am confident will work for you as well as it works for me!
This blog will show updates about Saffa Associates, as well as interesting posts from the Digital/Marketing world. We hope our blog helps you get to know the team and I better and even pick up a tip or two about everything from paid search, to updates with Adobe.
We want to interact with you as much as possible, so we welcome your comments, feedback or even just a hello, so please contact us.
