Why the “Hubbub”?

It’s a digital world and boy it’s noisy out there.

Everyone has a voice and a window to be seen through. Slick employer branding, personal websites and noisy social media should help talent and growing organisations find each other. Yes and no.

The competition for talent is intense. If you’re not shouty enough or too busy to make sense of the hubbub then you’ll miss out.

Our aim is make sure outstanding organisations don’t miss the best talent, and vice versa.

Keeping up with new trends and trendsetters is difficult. We’re in the thick of it everyday, so you can make an informed choice when you’re pursuing  your next venture or your next member of the team.

You need a proactive, knowledgeable and connected agent to be your voice out there.

The Hubbub cuts through the noise. We guide our careful curated clients and champion candidates to each other.

Candidates will find opportunities at soaring digital start ups, creative inhouse product teams, stimulating SaaS/software houses and digital creative agencies.

Our network has been built over 22 years. Work with us and you’ll uncover the right, often hidden, talent and opportunities for you.




“I cannot thank Ian enough for helping me…. advising me on locations that would be better suited to my skill set, knowing companies directly to initiate interviews and finding me the perfect role with a brilliant mentor on a project that ticks all the boxes.”

Jon, Digital Director


” Building a new software product…… I didn’t hold out much hope of finding someone locally….. within a couple of days we had found a great developer who is still with us…great cultural fit…really really good experience, can’t do better than that!”

Nick Burne. Raisethru CEO


” ..with eight pages of CV, I was struggling to get noticed. The (personal rebranding) process was simple and effective. Ian identified my key skills, swiftly delivered a concise, market-ready impressive CV, proactively intro’d me to companies, secured an interview & I landed the job. Ian’s experience in IT, branding and recruitment is a powerful mix. I have no hesitation in recommending Ian. ”

John Calford. Senior IT PM in Digital Transformation, BI, ERP & Data Warehousing


“Ian is a great recruitment partner and has sourced very good candidates (one of which we have now hired) for us. He’s personable and dedicated, and an effective and well-networked recruiter. Happy to recommend him!”

James Cowdale, Creative Director & Owner

“I’ve found Ian easy to work with because he knows the design sector well and he has integrity, treating businesses and candidates equally well. He works hard at matching candidates with the right job and aims to create long term relationships with clients. Overall a good guy to know as far as recruiters go!”
