Making Sense of the Digital Hubbub. A potent new recruitment agency with ambition.

About Us

Jack got lucky with his magic beans. However, most people walk into strange and busy markets and cannot distinguish the good trader from the bad, the great opportunities from the stinkers. And it’s difficult to be heard above the din.

The digital recruitment market is no different for the unwary.

Ian Johnston is a recruitment specialist with different DNA.

Over a 25 year period, Ian’s worked on the other side of the fence, as well as within recruitment. Knowledge gained as a creative agency partner and as a business director in IT is invaluable in the recruitment context. Expect the unexpected: a personable, grown-up and informed recruitment partner.

Rubbing shoulders with tech entrepreneurs, developers and creatives means that he speaks your language, saving you precious time and effort.

It’s the innovation and inventiveness, the hustle and bustle of the digital sector that gives Ian a buzz. Ian loves being in the thick of it; identifying and getting to know the players, the movers and shakers.

It’s painful to watch organisations miss out on the best talent, making average or bad hires. Or to see people join unsuitable companies. Expensive and distressing mistakes. Everything Ian does is geared to guiding people around the digital marketplace, matching great talent to peachy roles.

Ian’s knowledge, use of cutting-edge SaaS recruitment tech, and old-fashioned networking are key ingredients to his success.

Say hello and join Ian at the digital Hubbub.

Why the Hubbub?

Natural Networker

A little old school. You know, picking the phone and having conversations.

Of course social media, advertising, and marketing are employed but the personal touch is important.  Meeting, listening and talking, getting to know people is the Hubbub’s MO.




To know clients’ and candidates’ elevator pitches is key. Proactive, your ambassador and agent when talking to prospective suitors.




Delivery focused

Everything is aimed at being ready for you. To deliver the talent or opportunity to you when you most need it.





Trumpet your wins! Projects you’re proud of. What’s been your big idea or achievement? What tech do you love?

These insights make a difference and help to ensure the right introductions are made.






Innovative and inspiring organisations are strongly preferred. The right stuff, also preferred. 

No daft calls or emails, no square pegs in round holes.



Not to be too blunt but you want the best person or opportunity, don’t you? Not just the first one that comes along?

Hear about the hidden gems you’ll want to meet and work with.
