The Washington, DC area’s premier, full-scope provider of professional, technical, creative, and administrative talent to the area's top employers celebrates the success of its new Creative Division to meet industry’s evolving needs
Rockville, MD – March 28, 2017 - Sparks Group, the Washington, DC area’s leading temporary staffing and full-time recruiting services provider, announces today that its Creative Division has achieved continually-increasing levels of success and accomplishment in the year since its launch in January, 2016. Solely focused on creative, marketing, and digital roles, the Creative Division has now taken up residence in the company’s DC office, located at 910 17th Street NW and in Tysons Corner, VA at 1775 Greensboro Station Place.
“In founding our Creative Division, we saw a growing need and demand among many of our clients, particularly for projects leveraging mobile platforms and augmented and virtual reality, which gave way to adding this as a focus area to round out our services and deliver even more value,” said Jason Erickson, Director of Sparks Group’s Creative Division. “This new Division is firmly rooted in the company’s values of people-focus and industry expertise to build lasting relationships and top value, and we could not be more proud of how successful it has been.”
Among the Creative Division’s successes to-date are the following:
- Industry Recognition. This year’s Inavero Best of Staffing Award Survey garnered Sparks Group’s Creative Division a 100% Net Promoter score among clients.
- Deepened Footprint among Top Clients. Over the past year, the Creative Division has integrated itself among the company’s top clients- 5 at the international level and 3 Fortune 500 organizations- as well as achieved visibility among Sparks Group’s top 25 highest-grossing accounts.
- Proven Process and Track-Record. Since its launch, Sparks Group’s Creative Division has generated significant success in placing talent in contract, contract to hire, and direct hire positions due to its people-focused, outside-in approach, to gain deep understandings of both the client organization and the talent to ensure just the right fit.
A recently-placed Digital Marketing Analyst said of his experience, “[Sparks Group] connected me with an excellent opportunity that fits my experience, passions, interests, and career goals…I've worked with several recruiters since I graduated from American University's MA in Strategic Communication program, and [Sparks Group] is by far the best. [They are] exceptional communicators, networkers, and relationship builders…and I am grateful for all of [their] hard work.”
“We are very pleased with the success of our Creative Division over the year since its founding,” Sparks Group’s CEO and Owner, Stephen Sparks said. “Jason and his team have worked hard to continue to deepen their knowledge of the trends in the creative realm and the skills or expertise needed, including social/web-based content, UX mobile design, leveraging Sparks Group’s clearances in areas such as desktop publishing, content, videographers, and digital work across the government space, and account management at key levels, to deliver on the promise of the Sparks Group experience. ROI can be very difficult to show in the Creative space, and our team has achieved it consistently. We look forward to its continued growth and success.”
