Major Players Launches into Amsterdam

At the end of January, we were excited to announce the strategic merger between Major Players, the UK’s leading digital, marketing, and creative talent agency and Arrows Group, a global technology talent solutions company, forming the Majar Group.

The creation of this group combines capabilities and complimentary services, that ensure we will deliver progressive talent, digital transformation, and growth strategies to our clients across the UK and Europe. Importantly, our network now extends to Amsterdam - a city where we are now able to connect digital, marketing, and creative talent to ambitious clients that are based in this thriving region.

Over the years, advertising and marketing has become one of Amsterdam’s best strengths, with several the world’s top agencies born or based in the city, driving award-winning international campaigns for the biggest global brands. The city has also seen numerous new creative hubs sprouting up in and around the city, notably transforming empty buildings or older industrial terrain into hotspots for media, design, and art – attracting expanding brands and fresh talent in the process.

This exponential growth, combined with the prospect of a healthier work-life balance, has seen many creative types head to the Dutch capital. Over the last few years, we have seen attitudes on relocation and remote working change expeditiously, and preliminary data from our recent 2022 Salary Survey suggests that up to 25% of our network are open to relocating either regionally or internationally.

For the last 29 years, we have been accelerating ambitions, building brands, and creating instrumental partnerships with the best talent in London and the UK.  Now more than ever, businesses are truly global and eager to assemble diverse, international talent teams that allow them to prioritise digital transformation, and the rapidly changing world and consumer base.
