Working with you

We take pride in representing the best candidates. Every member of our team has first-hand industry experience and insight, so you know you’re in safe hands. You won’t find any jargon-spouting, salesy types here, just straight-talking professionals.

Once selected, we treat all our candidates as individuals, getting to know you personally, so we can successfully place you in a role tailored to your skills, experience and personality. As a result, everyone on The Industry Club’s books are people we know; members not numbers.

Because we’re a small company we can offer a more personal service than larger companies.

If you are looking for flexibility or you’re unsure about your next move, freelance could be the change you are looking for. Freelance can be exciting and rewarding with great benefits but it can also be quite challenging: we can advise you whether it’s the right choice for you.

If you freelance directly with clients or agencies, you probably won’t have a contract in place specifying notice periods and payment terms. When you freelance through us, you are protected by our contract terms and we take care of your payments on a weekly basis.

I moved to London from New Zealand and was very worried about finding a job in a new market which I knew nothing about. I found Nicky through LinkedIn and once we had our first conversation on the phone, Nicky did everything she could to help me find a job. She would call me in the evenings to prep me for interviews the next day or talk to me about new job listings she thought would suit, she went above and beyond to get me a job as soon as possible. Nicky promised to have me in a job I would love within 3 weeks, and here I am, writing this recommendation from my new job that I love 3 weeks later! I would not hesitate to recommend Nicky, she goes above and beyond and does everything she can to make sure you are happy with your new role.
