Recruitment agency, Short Term Girlfriend (STGF), is celebrating two years in business with the launch of a new website that acknowledges its growth and highlights its difference. STGF’s focus is primarily freelance but it also regularly recruits full-time staff for creative agencies and production companies.
The new look website, by creative director, Kristen Doyle at Killanoodle, centers on STGF’s dedication to finding the best freelance talent fit for clients and their creative projects. It features illustrations by Mahalia Rose-Larkin and copywriting by Marrianne Little.
Founder, Samantha Simpson, explained what makes STGF stand out, “We look at how people want to be engaged and what makes or breaks a creative team in the current workspace. Our process is very personalised, hands-on and brief-driven. We take the time to get to know our clients’ needs and understand their company culture to offer up the very best in trusted people and not just a handful of CVs to filter through.”
STGF head of talent and operations, Mel Reardon, added, “Having many conversations with agency heads of talent acquisition and creative operations directors, it’s clear to see the structure of the advertising industry post pandemic has changed and our model really fits into that – we support companies as their hybrid workplaces expand and contract. Coming from the production world, both Sammy and I understand our clients’ needs. We’ve also seen an increase in freelance creative talent taking note on how we operate differently and wanting to join. We care about their values and what motivates them, and match them with the right clients and projects.
“We believe the future is freelance: fluid and centered on the right fit.”
STGF has recently recruited talent in freelance or fulltime roles for The Monkeys, VCCP, 303 Mullen Lowe, AnalogFolk, The General Store, Apparent, Six Black Pens, Canva, Chello, Electric Art and Akcelo. It has also has worked on the production of an array of creative projects this year, including ING with Ogilvy and Betfair via Bear Meets Eagle on Fire. The agency also assisted We Are Social for Topo Chico + DiDi, collaborated with Six Black Pens on NAB, and produced a TKD product launch for Bunnings.
