Human resource manager
“When our graphic designer handed in his notice, we needed a swift replacement to cover the workload. Having worked with other departments of Michael Page in the past, we were pleased to discover they now had a design team specifically placing graphic designers. Our first experience of dealing with Michael Page Design & Development was excellent. They were able to source a strong shortlist within a matter of days and the standard of candidates they delivered meant we would have employed at least two designers had we been able to.
As it is we have employed a fantastic designer to lead our business forward. Should we have to employ another designer in the future, I won’t have to look further than getting back in touch with Michael Page Design & Development.”
Marketing manager
“I was looking to recruit an in-house graphic designer with experience in both print and web design to work alongside our marketing department. Having not worked with Michael Page Design & Development before I found them to be highly communicative and helpful in sourcing a strong shortlist of three designers, one of which we felt was a perfect match. The whole process was time efficient and stress free, if ever we need another designer I would not hesitate to get back in touch.”

Iain Cole approached me through word of mouth. I did not mind, as I know Michael Page has a great reputation so I was keen to see the candidates Ian could help me with sourcing. I felt I was able to trust and build a relationship easily with Iain and Liam Humphreys. I found their service very professional, helpful, friendly and thorough in understanding the requirements for the role and the business. I would recommend and use Michael Page Design & Development again in the future.
