Major Players Launches Manchester Hub

Back to Blogs

​We’re delighted to announce that Major Players have officially launched a Manchester hub, where we are now able to connect digital, marketing, and creative talent to ambitious businesses based in this thriving northern region. Led by Jess Parker, one of our Board Directors. Jess has a dedicated career in recruitment, spanning 11 years with a specialism across Creative. Since joining us, Jess has spearheaded our freelance division, being an instrumental part of its success. Passionate about building on relationships and forming new partnerships, she now turns her focus on our newest regional talent solutions hub, Manchester. 

Manchester has been instrumental in hosting a vibrant creative economy with 156,000 people working in creative and digital roles across the North West – as part of a creative ecosystem that contributes £6.5bn in direct regional GVA, making the region the highest performing creative cluster outside of London.

With London talent exploring re-location opportunities to address mounting city living costs and reclaim a healthy work/life balance, Manchester has been a key place in national talent growth. Voted the 3rd best city in the world by Timeout, it is home to approximately 9000+ Creative & Tech companies dotted around the city and the volume of buoyant creative agencies in Greater Manchester is further evidence of new, exciting step forward in regional talent solutions.

Our mission has always been routed in transformation. As leaders in the industries we service, we accelerate ambitions, build brands, and create instrumental partnerships with the best talent across the UK. With Manchester now in view, we’re extending our support to businesses with regional and global visions, building on our international portfolio established earlier this year.  

If you’re open to exploring opportunities in Manchester, or if you’re looking to access the best talent the UK has to offer, then please reach out to have a confidential chat:
