Talent Agent for Agencies
Location: Melbourne (Firebrand Talent)
What’s the job?
We are looking for a Talent Agent, to join the Firebrand Talent Team and help maintain and grow our reputation for providing the best Account Management, Creative and Digital talent for Melbourne’s digital, advertising and creative agencies. As projects and campaigns become evermore integrated and complex, demand for Talent in this space is already high, and is going to get higher.
2017 was a record breaking year for our Agency team and as result of that, and the incumbent Talent Agent relocating overseas, there is huge opportunity for a smart, switched on individual to join and contribute to our ongoing success.
What would you be doing?
You would be based in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD and be networking with Talent and clients across Melbourne’s booming agency world.
Our agency clients range from the large multinational networks thorough to small independents. You would providing a top notch service to all by providing access to the highest calibre Talent available, who can deliver the very best work for their clients.
The role has two key elements:
Agencies expect the very best Talent, and usually need them quickly, so the role is incredibly fast paced and means you need to be fully integrated in Melbourne’s agency landscape.
Building trusting client relationships is the root of success in this role so this is not a role for a transactional, high-pressure sales person; it’s a role for an individual with a relentless dedication to providing exceptional customer service and delivering successful, quality outcomes.
This aspect involves building extensive Talent communities and assessing the skills of the most in-demand Talent. We become advisors to our Talent and support many of them as their careers progress to the point where they now come to us to help build their own teams. So a successful Talent Agent thinks both short and term, and is constantly networking and meeting Talent to immerse themselves in the agency landscape.
Who are we looking for?
You may be working in an advertising, creative or digital agency and interested in a career switch that will still enable you to use your agency knowledge, creative passion and work with many of the best agencies and Talent in Melbourne.
Alternatively, you may be a recruitment consultant already recruiting in our space, or perhaps in a totally different sector and wanting a change to focus in this highly specialised, fast moving and fun sector.
Regardless of background, with some of the best training and development programs in the recruitment industry we adapt accordingly to help the right people succeed. We have done it before. Many times.
And what does it take to succeed with us?
For starters its people who are: Proactive and collaborative; Accountable and self-driven; Professional and passionate; Customer focussed and transparent; Interesting and enemies of average. We don’t take shortcuts, we are competitive without ever sacrificing our ethics, and whether its hosting and networking at our industry events, or dropping off ice-creams on a 40 degree day, we get to know our clients well.
What’s in it for you?
Across our three businesses (Aquent, Vitamin T and Firebrand), we believe it's our people who make the difference, so we invest in them heavily. Besides a highly competitive remuneration package that puts you in control of your earnings, initiatives include extensive training; over $8000 a year to spend on your personal individual development needs and many other benefits, such as days off for community work, birthday leave, access to our holiday house in Hawaii and full travel insurance for you and your family.
With structured, bespoke career development programs for everyone in the business, we trust and empower our people to be the best in the industry and recognise, celebrate and reward our high performers. Career progression is encouraged in our business and we have recent examples of people moving into management, mentoring and senior level roles within a year of joining us.
