How Does Your Service Work?
We help creative talent find meaningful digital creative freelance, temporary-to-permanent and permanent work. The first step is to connect with a local recruiter, who acts as an advocate to represent you to both our internal teams and to clients, presenting your profile for opportunities that match your skill set, interest, and experience. We have an in-depth screening process that includes a phone interview, face-to-face interview, portfolio review when necessary, appropriate skills assessments and ultimately, orientation to our service.
Once you are placed in a role, we pay you directly and weekly, and get you set up for all the perks we offer our talent. We handle all invoicing and collections with clients, so you can focus on what you do best.
For freelance roles, we work hard to help you stay busy and will work to make sure we consistently present you for additional opportunities.
Throughout the process, our agents help coach you on your career path, prepare you for interviews and share cool trends and events so you can keep on growing.
And don't forget our free, online training to keep your digital skills up-to-date through Gymnasium.

I'm Looking for Work
We specialise in agency roles. From creative directors to front end developers, account directors to social media copywriters, to UX designers and more, the talent we represent generally bring 2+ years (often decades) of professional experience within agencies. Your first step is to browse our jobs for a role that fits your skills and interests. Remember, we’re a service for agencies seeking only the best freelance, temp-to-perm and permanent expertise, so we’re not your best choice for transitioning careers or finding your first job within agencies.
That said, we have lots of resources to help you improve your chances of finding work. So whether or not we can help you today, check out our blog for industry trends, career advice and tips and consider Gymnasium, our free online training on the most in-demand digital skills.

What if There Is No Vitamin T Office Near Me?
We’ve made it our specialty to work with our clients locally, so most of our opportunities exist in the cities where we have physical offices. However, sometimes our clients are looking for just the right talent, no matter where they live! So check out our job postings, which include those posted by our Aquent and Firebrand Talent brands. In Australia, we have offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
I Applied to a Job but Haven't Heard Back
We work hard to make sure every applicant to our service receives a response and know it’s frustrating not to know what’s happening next.
If you applied to one of our jobs and haven't heard back, it's likely that candidates are still under review for client submission. The agent who posted the job is working hard to help that client find the perfect match and will contact you if the information you provided in your submission matches the position to schedule an interview with us. Ultimately, our clients determine which talent they wish to engage, so sometimes our process is delayed by changes in client business or lack of response.
You may also contact the agent that posted the position to follow up or reach out to an agent in your local market to discuss other opportunities, just in case there was an unforeseen issue that prevented your information from reaching its destination.
