Green Key Creative recruiters possess a nuanced understanding of the digital and creative industries. We match candidates’ specific creative expertise to exciting roles in their target industries.

Candidates often ask us . . .

What do creatives do?

Creatives help build and perfect the identity of a brand. When the right creative is placed in a perfectly-matched role, incredible things happen.

Green Key Creative is committed to matching job-seeking creatives with their dream roles across a range of functions, including:

  • Copywriting 
  • Ecommerce 
  • Marketing and Advertising 
  • Photography 
  • Production

Don’t creatives earn less than other professionals?

Not necessarily!

Unfortunately, many job seekers and recruiters alike tend to dismiss creative jobs as low-paying career choices. But with the right combination of skills and expertise in their desired field, young creative professionals could bring home anywhere from $57,000 to $126,000 a year.
