Esther Clerehan is Australia’s most experienced creative recruiter. Over the last 30 years she has placed many of the industry’s creative high flyers, and has worked with some of the world’s leading agencies including M&C Saatchi, Goodby Silverstein & Partners and The Monkeys. Esther’s strategic eye and deep intuition in matchmaking the right candidate for the right job has helped to shape the advertising industry and her website is filled with testimonials from creative leaders singing her praises.
Since Esther started her own company in 1993, (BTW her first placement was a very young Andy Flemming, now the Group Creative Director, M&C Saatchi Australia), the whole job landscape has changed dramatically. Websites have replaced portfolios, LinkedIn has replaced CVs, there are HR departments and internal recruiters (and thankfully more women in creative leadership roles!) Esther will be sharing her insights and helping us understand how to recognise and attract top talent.
