Our Digital Offering

Beyond the Book was founded on a passion and an in-depth understanding of the creative industry. However, over the last 10 years we’ve evolved and grown into one of the most established and knowledgeable Creative, Digital and Marketing recruitment agencies in the West Midlands.

In the last few years, the Digital offering at Beyond the Book has gone from strength to strength and continues to evolve and adapt with the landscape, and the changing requirements of our clients.

We can proudly say we have one of (if not the) strongest Digital offerings in the West Midlands, based on industry knowledge, expertise and network.

Our knowledge is broad, yet specialist, and you can be assured that when you speak to a consultant at Beyond the Book about your digital needs, we’ll take the time to really understand your business needs, direction and culture – we don’t simply ‘skills match’ a CV and hope that it fits!

Our Digital sector is led by Emma Simkiss, who has over 11 years industry experience, 7 in an in-house Marketing/Digital Marketing role and 4 as a specialist Digital recruiter.
