Kindred uses Instagram for ‘creative’ recruitment

Kindred has launched an Instagram portfolio to give creative marketing professionals the chance to learn more about the agency and apply to join its team, as part of Kindred’s drive to find new creative talent.

The Kindred Instagram portfolio is designed to showcase the current roles available in the agency, as well as its people, culture and clients.

Roles currently available at the agency include social creatives, PR creatives, content creators and junior web designers. The content creators will become part of Kindred’s new creator-in-residence programme – month long placements for creators working from Kindred’s in-house content studio.

Sinéad Gray, social media director at Kindred, said: “Instagram is the perfect platform to hire through as there’s a huge amount of people making use of social channels in interesting and innovative ways and that’s exactly the kind of talent we want to add to our team of creative thinkers and makers.

“We work hard to come up with award winning and creative social, PR and advertising campaigns for our clients so it’s important that we show how as an agency we are constantly innovating and that we can hire people who understand growing marketing channels.”

Melody Richards, HR manager at Kindred, added: “We want to make sure we are hiring the best and most creative talent across the sector so we continue to stand out from the crowd. Kindred is a unique and exciting place to work we wanted to reflect that by recruiting in a unique and exciting way.

“It is our people and our work that our clients buy into and as we grow, ensuring that we recruit and support our staff is one of Kindred’s priorities. I encourage people who want to work in a culture that celebrates creativity and personality to apply and I look forward to meeting the people who do.”

The Instagram feed was designed in-house and features Kindred’s newly-appointed “director of cuddles” Batman, the agency’s 11-month-old French Bulldog (pictured).
