​Partnership Background

Since 2019, Digital Gravity have worked with the senior team at Shelter as their preferred recruitment partner for their design, creative and digital marketing hiring needs.

With 20 years’ experience both as a Senior Graphic Designer and a Creative Recruiter, Paul Cordingley heads up our Digital Design & Creative Division who have an impressive track record of supplying Shelter with leading creative talent on both short and long-term contracts and a permanent basis.

Combining Paul’s knowledge and experience with the team’s network, Digital Gravity are trusted to advise and guide senior leaders within Shelter on the type of profile and skillset best suited for each project, all of which saves valuable time and money.

Additionally, the campaigns created by the experienced designers and creatives we’ve introduced to date have had a huge impact for the organisation. The ROI achieved, both commercial and legislative, is an indication of the quality of talent Digital Gravity is able to provide.

What They Say About Us

“We have a great working relationship with Digital Gravity. They always provide us with a high calibre of candidate for both our permanent and freelance roles. They really listen to the brief and send us a well thought out, cherry-picked selection of potential candidates, rather than bombarding us with loads of people who don’t quite fit the brief.

In addition to a range of finding us trusted freelancers, Digital Gravity have helped build the highly talented and award-winning creative team we have today.”
