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.Submit your CV

DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
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.
Working with Zoe has been a real breath of fresh air. She’s super attentive and really took the time to understand what was important to me in making my next step.
Zoe understands the importance of character and culture and stands out as someone who really does care about finding the right environment for her candidates. She also has a really deft touch which helped make navigating my way through the recruitment process really easy.
Overall, an absolute joy to work with. I’d thoroughly recommend her, or someone just like her!
Melissa stands out with not only her efficient, pro-active and professional approach, but also the genuine integrity she demonstrates in her quest to find you a role that fits properly. I highly recommend her and The Industry Club if you are seeking work in the creative / advertising world.
Global Integrated Project Manager
Working with Charlene has been the best experience. She is clear, honest and on it. I met her and landed my top choice placement in under 48 hours. I look forward to working with her in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a PM Consultant.
Senior Project Manager
Charlene was an absolute joy to work with throughout the whole recruiting process for my current role. Not only did she deliver on the best briefs to me, but she was a real delight to deal with and managed my expectations better than any recruiter I’ve worked with before. Couldn’t recommend her enough.
Having been on the recruiter rodeo a few times now with most of the usual shops in town, I found The Industry Club, and Farzana in particular, a breath of fresh air. Sure, they might be a small set-up, but they punch well above their weight. Farzana, on her part, proactively helped me land my current role in a matter of weeks…I even had time to go on holiday! All in all, a pleasure to deal with, and I’ll certainly look up Farzana when I’m ready to make my next step up. If you’re looking for a new opportunity, you deffo should too.
