Industry leaders in digital, creative, media and marketing talent acquisition since 2009.

Clifford Associates draws on more than a decade of industry expertise in understanding the requirements of both candidates and client businesses in order to place candidates where they can thrive and best contribute to business growth.

At Clifford Associates, we know that candidates are more than just a list of skills on a CV, and that business roles cannot be accurately described by a set of requirements alone. Through our experience in the digital, marketing and tech sectors, we have developed innovative talent acquisition techniques to match candidates with businesses where both the role and culture are a perfect fit.

We provide a predictable end-to-end hiring process for technology-focused businesses and digital media marketing clients. In over a decade of working with industry-leading firms, we have developed a substantial contact base with both businesses and candidates in high-demand roles including IT security, business intelligence, and digital media.

Even with our significant reach, we recognise that aligning the best candidate with the correct business and role is a difficult and time-consuming process for both sides. To that end, we have created and refined a class-leading signature performance hiring system. This enables us to precision match both parties with optimum efficiency.

  • I am writing to express my gratitude to Ross Clifford & Associates who helped me successfully secure the role of Enterprise Sales Executive at Concured. Ross was extremely professional and understood the specifics of the job I required. I especially appreciated his fast response, transparent communication, and coordination in a timely and efficient manner.
    - Tariq Mahmood, Enterprise Sales, Concured AI Content Marketing
  • Ross is one of the friendliest recruiters I've dealt with. He was always attentive, quick to respond and ready to help with any questions I had. He's very professional, and not at all superficial like so many other recruiters out there. I would highly recommend him.
    - Jessica Cole, Editor – Redwood London.
  • “We look for commercial people with a rare blend of talents. They need to be able to advise our blue-chip clients on thought leadership strategy. They need to be highly strategic and purposeful in uncovering opportunity. And they need the hunger it takes to thrive in a rapidly evolving business. Ross was quick to understand our need, he only delivered high-quality people for interview, and he succeeded in getting us a winning candidate incredibly fast.”  
    - Gareth Lofthouse, Founding Partner, Longitude.
  • I can't rate or recommend Ross highly enough. He brings a thoughtful, personal approach to the process, carefully matching opportunities with candidates, through a good understanding of their priorities and skills. Throughout, he keeps candidates up to date in an open, honest way. A genuine pleasure to work with.
    - Johnny Meredith, Senior New Business Manager, The Bio Agency.
  • Ross is the best recruitment agent I have worked with, he stayed in contact, kept me informed and was with me every step of the process. He also checked in with me during my first couple of weeks in my new role to make sure I was settling in. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
    - Karen Troman, Office Manager & HR Co-ordinator, part of RetailMeNot
  • I have worked with Ross over 4 years now and he has always delivered a really high standard of candidate both at senior and junior level. His online knowledge is second to none and all the candidates he has put forward over the years have only good things to say about Ross and his work ethic.
    - Neil Kettleborough, CRO & Co Founder, Chalk Social
  • Ross is a fantastic recruitment consultant -  extremely professional, meticulous, patient and supportive. Throughout the process, I felt he represented me really well and genuinely cared about my career and finding the right role. Thanks to Ross I am now in a role I love, working with a brilliant team. Very highly recommended!
    - Helen Rosemier, Commercial Director, Professional & Financial Services Practice, Longitude
  • I have no hesitation in recommending Ross. He is, by quite some distance, the best recruiter I have worked with. Perhaps unusually, Ross listens carefully in order to understand the needs of his clients and candidates, thereby ensuring that good matches are made; we are not talking 'spray and pray'. Likeable and on the ball, I hope to work with him again.
    - Pete Braham, Business Development, Longitude.
