Digital People Moves Report, Q4 2016


2016 provided us with ups and downs aplenty but of one thing we can be absolutely sure: digital people moves within the consumer marketplace in October, November and December were as prevalent and exciting as ever. Here is our quarterly report on those moves.

To be clear, this is an overview of appointments that have taken place across the wider marketplace and are not necessarily all our placements.

Let me know if you would like to meet and discuss the digital talent marketplace and any hiring needs you may have.

Here’s to the New Year and I look forward to hearing from you if the team and I can help in any way.

Best regards,
