Employment | Chesterfield Waterside
A wealth of talent on the doorstep...
"The move to Chesterfield certainly raised a few eyebrows in the creative circles in Nottingham, but our results show that perhaps the overcrowded cities aren't the be-all-and-end-all for agencies. We have found it no harder to service our blue chip clients in London and Nottingham, and have also been able to widen the net and win clients in Derby, Leicester and Sheffield."
Jonathan Worsley, Director at Crush
