MEC After a period of rapid growth, MEC Manchester needed additional skilled IT people in its digital marketing team. The media agency’s slow back-office offer process meant that good candidates were often lost, however. The consultants at Spring discussed recruitment plans with MEC’s directors in order to establish requirements and timescales. Knowledge of the offer process enabled the consultants to manage candidates’ expectations so they were prepared for potential delays to an offer being made. Suitable candidates Spring is proud to have regularly found suitable candidates for MEC, having placed 10 people since 2010. We continue to work closely with the directors and staff in both the Manchester and London offices. MEC is one of the world’s top media agencies and employs almost 5,000 people in more than 150 offices across 84 countries.
