Tracey Parker, Creative Recruitment Lead

Tracey Parker

My expertise lies in all areas of Creative & Design, Artwork & Production and Creative Services, and I work with clients and candidates within agency and in-house across the UK.

I have 18 years industry experience (12 years in marketing agencies, 6 years in creative recruitment)

I work on junior through to director level opportunities and with people who add value in their thinking and their craft. I also support undergrads kick start their career, through University, College and Birmingham Design Festival partnerships.

During my advertising years, I registered with BTB as a candidate and when they were looking to recruit from the industry, I put my hand up and I’ve not looked back. Every day I get to use my knowledge and experience from my agency days in helping me understand the needs of my clients and candidates. I understand the importance of great working culture, and I love helping people find a new role they are genuinely excited about and that truly helps their career.

“Working with Anna and her team at Beyond the Book has been, and always will be, a fantastic experience. Anna and the guys ALWAYS go above and beyond what I ask them for - giving me insights, suggestions, and inspiration on projects - not just some of the best candidates I've worked with... which is no accident either, as they align our way of thinking with candidates who work in a similar style - PERFECT for the creative sector.”

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

“I have nothing but good things to say about Beyond The Book. Simply one of the best recruiters out there.”

“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.”

“Beyond the Book is a Relationship Recruitment Business. They are so much more than a Recruitment Company. I have worked with Kaisa for over 5 years, and we have built a good relationship, so we know the Freelance placements that offer the client and myself the best skillset and results. The placements with advertising agencies have always matched my skillset perfectly and always resulted in extended bookings because the client is pleased with the match.”
