What We're About

We pick cherries is a creative recruitment agency that believes in the little things making a big difference. Like us.

The big difference is that we believe in being genuinely creative too, this means that we rely on the kooky little things like instinct, imagination and the odd eureka moment to get stuff happening.

We know that the world has changed and there are far too many choices and not enough time to sort through them. Because of this, we also know that working personally and creatively with a select bunch of like-minded creatives and clients is the way forward, in fact, we’d rather not work at high volumes or scale and give a one size fits all service, we are not keen on the mass market or rounding the edges to appeal to the masses.

We are cherry pickers after all!

Because of this entirely specialist, personalized and bespoke nature, we get a kick out of taking the time to seek out and get it right for our chosen clutch of the boldest and the brightest, the deliciously unique, those wildly gifted and rare ones.

To be carefully selected by us means that there’s something pretty special about you and that there’s likely a fun and fruitful collaboration in your future! We think that’s really exciting.

So whether you are a creative or a planner,
or you are just in need of a very good one...
We cherry pick the juiciest talent and add great jobs.
Simple.

And to our chosen fabulous few, welcome home.
