Recruitment specialist Better Placed renews its partnership with Prolific North for 2022


Better Placed, the recruitment agency focusing on digital, marketing, tech and sales roles, has returned as a Prolific Partner following a successful year.

The company, which has offices in Leeds, Manchester and London, will partner with the digital publisher for a further year.

Prolific North is forging productive partnerships once again having worked with a range of leading Northern businesses in 2021 to get behind the creative and digital sectors in new ways.

We’ve recently announced the return of McCann Leeds, CreativeRace and Boutique as Partners, and signed up Unbranded Manchester as another.

“We’re very pleased to be partnering with Prolific North again in 2022,” said Dean Bartle, Founding Director of Better Placed. “2021 was a big year for Better Placed; transitioning to Employee Ownership, our Tech recruitment division completing its first year, as well as investing in numerous initiatives to ensure the business was in great health to continue growing in 2022.

“Our partnership with Prolific North provides us with a brilliant opportunity to share our news and views with a wide and diverse community and we look forward to building on that through the coming year – a year where we are celebrating our 20th birthday in business.”

Last year, the partnership between Prolific North and Better Placed saw the recruitment company host an important webinar on how the marketing industry can focus on inclusivity, and successfully attract a greater diversity of candidates.

Later in 2021, Better Placed also put on a roundtable discussion – ‘How to Engage and Retain Marketing Talent’ – at their Leeds office, chaired by Agency Manager Rosie MacPhail and featuring contributors including Ollie Purdom of McCann, Leanne Taylor of connective3, and Sarah Speechly from Audience Collective.

2022’s Partners will feature prominently online and join a range of Prolific North events throughout the year, including awards and a dedicated summit. There will also be opportunities to significantly contribute to wider industry conversations.

Better Placed is one of the UK’s largest independent recruitment ​consultancies and in November revealed its “ambitious growth plans”.
