  • Connect Digital is the ONLY agency that we use when looking for new team members. For all of you who get 10+ phone calls a day from recruiters trying to push CV's, ignore them all…..except make sure you take Jeremy's!! He's up to date with all the industry chatter and helps us build a better business. On top of all that he's a good honest fella!

    James DixonManaging Director
  • Jeremy has played a pivotal role in the building of InMobi Australia. Apart from headhunting me from my role at Groupon, he helped constitute the initial team at InMobi that has gone on to become the #1 mobile advertising network in Australia & New Zealand. Jeremy is very knowledgeable of the ad industry and very insightful when it comes to opportunities within international technology companies. I would highlight his thoroughness, speedy follow-up, work around the clock (in negotiating with key markets like India, China, the US,...), ability to deal with senior management & complex HR structures. I would recommend Jeremy & his services to any top 100 company in Australia. It was a pleasure working with him.

    Francisco Cordero McNamaraGeneral Manager & Regional Director, Australia & New Zealand
  • Jeremy has sourced many strong candidates for MediaCom over the past 2 years with one key hire I've made through Connect Digital going on to lead some of our biggest accounts and recently being promoted. Jeremy is a consultative recruiter and will only ever send through top notch candidates demonstrating he has a rigorous screening process, a strong understanding of not only the local search (SEM & SEO) industry and is well connected within the industry.

    Stuart BeckinghamGroup Director
  • I've worked with Jeremy on and off over the last few years and he has consistently found me high quality Digital talent, often getting it right on the first pass. Moreover he is a pleasure to deal with.

    Dana TeahanHead of Technology
  • Jeremy is so far ahead of all the other Digital recruiters out there. He's much more of a consultant than a recruiter and I've benefited immensely from his deep industry knowledge. He not only knows the local Digital industry inside-out, but is well read and connected across the UK, US & Asia-Pac markets. We're looking forward to engaging his services as we grow our in-house Digital capabilities. Use Jeremy or your competitors will.

    David LoughnanDirector of Digital
  • Over the last few years Jeremy has been instrumental in helping us source quality candidates in a period of growth for our agency. Importantly, he helped us find suitably skilled people who fit in culturally with our team. On short notice he was able to deliver various quality freelancers and full-time staff. Jeremy shares industry knowledge and potential leads which adds value and makes him a justified partner. Highly recommended!

I was most fortunate to be recruited into my current role by Jeremy. At all times his approach was professional and genuine. He was always available, personable, open and honest. With such vast experience within the profession, it was reassuring to have such personal attention from someone so passionate about what he does. I have no hesitation in recommending Jeremy.

Nancy MatarOnline Marketing Manager

I put a lot of trust in Jeremy to assist in the process of finding me a role in the Australian digital market. Jeremy took this trust and managed the process professionally and delivered on the objective we set out to achieve. Aside from the recruitment process Jeremy was helpful in all aspects of my move from the UK, adding a personal touch that exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't hesitate in using Jeremy again in the future although I don't think this will be necessary as the company Jeremy got me a role in fits not only my current requirements but also my future career aspirations.

Steve ChristisonSEO Specialist

Jeremy recruited me from the UK to my role in Australia. Throughout the three month transition process, he was across everything that needed to be done. He was excellent at answering questions and providing me with information about not only the role and the company, but also how the visa arrangements worked. He was a great middle man between me and the company. I would not hesitate in recommending Jeremy as a recruiter.

David BrighamHead of Web Analytics

Jeremy Champion is simply the best recruiter I've worked with. At a time in my career when I felt like a bit of a misfit - due to a broad and seemingly disparate skill-set, Jeremy quickly took the opportunity to turn this into a unique proposition. Jeremy not only found me my "perfect fit" job, he took the care and consideration in placing me with like-minded professionals with whom I basically have a bunch of fun working with! I highly recommend Jeremy Champion and I will use his services for years to come.

Paul ClissoldDigital Producer

Jeremy is an excellent professional and communicator; he made sure he understood what my skills were and what I was looking for both in the role and the company. Throughout the application process he was always in touch with updates on how things were going, what my expectations were, giving and asking for feedback, etc. He works very hard and is very persistent when it comes to trying to get what you really want! I recommend Jeremy with my eyes closed.

Enif AlvarezSearch Manager

Jeremy is a very quick, efficient and knowledgeable recruiter. In the short time he had me as a candidate, he was very good at preparing me for the whole interview process. His vast experience and knowledge of the online space gave me an advantage and I would highly recommended him to any candidate looking for a role.

Scott McWilliamSenior Business Development Coordinator

I've known Jeremy for many years. He has placed me at key agency postings and I have called upon him to find expert candidates in the digital marketing industry. Jeremy has always acted in a polite, fast and honourable fashion in all of our dealings. I would recommend Jeremy and I will use his services in the future.

About Us

A brief history of Connect Digital

Having recruited extensively in the Digital space for 5+ years, Connect Digital was created to simplify the recruitment process & restore faith in the value of a mature and well-informed consultative based approach.

Talent search methodologies

We take detailed briefs from our clients and thoroughly investigate the needs and desires of our candidates to make suitable matches.

Referrals

We spend time getting to know our candidates, and our supportive network is only too happy to share referrals of equally talented individuals. It's often said that 'good' people know other 'good' people and via recommendation are more likely to be able to confidently complete the job. Through referrals and recommendations we're able to reach hard to find candidates that are otherwise unresponsive to traditional recruitment techniques.

LinkedIn

We use LinkedIn as our main CRM database to help identify and entice passive candidates. Many years of extensive (targeted) networking has allowed us to build up a powerful database of highly skilled individuals across the globe.

Advertising

We only advertise jobs on the Connect Digital website, our closed talent network, social networks and a few free job boards. We don't believe we're best supporting our clients by simply replicating their job ads on Seek.

Fees

What works best for you? Feedback tells us that flexibility is way more important than being cheap and cheerful. Check out some of the fee options below. Feel free to mix and match to suit your needs.

Retainer

Retain Connect Digital for 6 or 12 months, for an agreed fixed rate, and benefit from an unlimited flow of quality candidates.

Flat fees

Have enough surprises in your life already? Work out an agreed flat (fixed) fee and negotiate salaries directly with the candidate, to prevent 'recruiter price creeping'.

Monthly payments

We can offer the flexibility of being able to pay monthly.

Volume discounts

Receive a reduced rate! Hire more candidates, pay less!

Contra-deals
