Evolve Jobs Ltd is a talent development company for the North East creative and digital sectors.
The North East is home to five universities, each with thousands and thousands of talented graduates who start looking for work each year. The region is also home to one of the fastest growing digital sectors in the country, and roles like digital marketing, web-design and social media management are in greater demand than ever before. Despite there being hundreds of companies searching for thousands of new recruits each year, much of the graduate talent leaves the region either because they do not know the career opportunities available to them in the North East, or because they eventually get frustrated with the arduous process of job searching on generic job sites.
Evolve Jobs believes that it should be much simpler for talented individuals to find their dream job, and for fast growing businesses to find the talent they need.
By focusing specifically on the creative and digital sector, and specifically on the North East, we believe it is possible to keep more of the graduate talent in the region and possible to reduce the skills gap.
Currently, there is no one central place for creative and digital jobs to be advertised to graduates and young professionals - companies either advertise on generic job sites, or advertise via their own channels (which only works if graduates know the company exists in the first place). It can also be difficult as a small business to find the time or budget to engage with students and universities directly.
By working with the region's universities, running events and delivering workshops for students and graduates looking to work in creative and digital roles, Evolve Jobs hopes to remove this particular barrier for small businesses.
The North East's first dedicated jobs site for creative and digital industry provides young professionals with a central place to search for their first or next role.
Evolve is not a recruitment firm - businesses are not charged commission should they find their ideal candidate through the platform. Instead, a low cost annual subscription provides businesses with access to the Evolve CV database and the ability to list job openings. The site is free to job seekers.
