Wow, I can’t believe it’s already 2013.
2012 was such an action-packed year for Digital Gurus. New faces, new offices, the Olympics and so much more…. here’s a quick recap on what it was like being a Guru last year.
We started the year as a 22 man squad and by the end had clocked an awesome 37 (and still counting).
The team now cover permanent and freelance recruitment across the following areas: Creative, Tech, PM, IA, Mobile, Client Services, Media Performance, Ad Technology and Sales.
Thanks to Pixelgroup our new site went live – a slick user interface with a robust job search feature that allows you to find the best fit role in minimal time (we set the bar with our first site and the new one hasn’t let us down).
2012 also saw us wave goodbye to our London Bridge HQ (we just couldn’t squeeze any more people in) and hello to brand spanking new offices in Old Street, a great open plan space right near the aptly named ‘silicon roundabout’.
DG sponsored various events such as the all new Glug London in Shoreditch Town hall (next one in Feb) and the BIMA Awards where we had the pleasure of handing the Agency of the Year award on stage to the eventual winners – AIS London. Personally, one of the proudest moments came when DG were named Recruitment agency of the Year at the MARA’s. It was great to receive a some recognition for the hard work the team have put in all year.
In December we saw DG open their hearts and wallets after hearing presents for the Children at Great Ormond Street hospital were stolen just before Christmas, so that same day the DG elves headed to Hamleys and hand delivered over 15 sacks filled with toys to the Charity.
For all our clients and candidates, a sincere thank you for your support so far. Feel free to come and visit us at our new address 10 East Road, Linen Court, N1 6AD or give one of the guys a call to catch up on our new line – 020 7253 1054.

With one chapter closed, 2013 already has some MAJOR news in the pipeline… so stay tuned for further updates…
