Here's how we can go Beyond

Recruitment Process

Once shortlisted for one of our roles, our consultants are committed to working with you to ensure you achieve your perfect career move. They will take in as much about you as you are willing to share to ensure they present best-fit opportunities to you. 

You may not be suitable for every role that you apply for, and our consultants always have a very clear brief of what our clients are looking for.  However we always reply to every application we receive to let you know the outcome.

Career Coaching

We continually update content on our Insights/Advice pages, so do keep visiting to see what you can take advantage of.

If you need help outside of any recruitment process or need a deeper level of career coaching, and/or CV and/or portfolio advice, we can help.

Whether you are looking to go freelance/contract, make more of your career, or want to ensure your search for permanent employment is focused and successful, we can help with some paid for services. Contact us to find out more.

Events and Workshops

We regularly attend events, run workshops and seminars and have now launched our podcast beyond:talks

This is all with the aim of supporting job seekers in their career journey, as well as helping businesses to successfully recruit. 

We have also presented at the Cheltenham Design Festival and various universities, helping graduates understand the industry and how to approach their job search.

Why do candidates love working with us?


We communicate clearly, promptly, and professionally, and keep candidates informed throughout the hiring process, providing updates and feedback (positive and negative) in a timely manner.


We have an in-depth knowledge of all clients we work with, and can provide detailed information about the role you're applying for, as well as the company, its culture, and values.


The majority of our consultants come from industry, with real world experiences in their niche, meaning they speak your language.


We act as a guide and advocate for candidates, offering support, answering questions, and providing resources to help you succeed in interviews and assessments.

Personal approach

We recognise that every candidate is unique, so we tailor our approach accordingly. We will take the time to understand your background, skills, and career goals.


We understand that candidates appreciate honesty and transparency in the hiring process. We will be upfront about the job expectations, salary range, benefits, and any potential challenges in a potential role.

Candidate resources

Here's what other candidates had to say about us...

“Both as a client and a candidate I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beyond The Book to others.”

“BTB are the best recruitment consultancy I have ever encountered as a candidate in the marketing industry.”

“I was lucky enough to connect with Michelle during my redundancy and from start to finish she was fantastic. She found me a fantastic job that was not only a great industry fit, but also a great cultural fit. She was professional, friendly and incredibly supportive. I’d highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a job.”

“Having only started my freelance journey earlier this year, I got in touch with Kaisa after a friend's recommendation and I'm glad I did! Kaisa knew all about my skills, experience and the type of contracts I was after which meant she has consistently delivered the perfect opportunities for me. I will continue to recommend Kaisa to friends and colleagues, she's a pleasure to communicate and work with.”

“Kaisa and the team at Beyond the Book helped me secure my first freelance job on-site at a Milton Keynes based design agency which has since turned into regular remote work. Kaisa has been great. She always keeps in regular contact and I've always found her to be friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Beyond the Book to any designer looking to take the plunge and begin a freelance career.”
