Aquent snaps up Pricejamieson

Aquent, the global marketing and creative recruitment consultancy, has acquired UK rival Pricejamieson. The consultancy provides recruitment services to the digital, media and marketing communications sectors and says it aims to treble in size.

The acquisition makes Aquent the largest media, digital and marcomms agency for permanent staff in the UK and creates Aquent’s largest market globally. It also creates the UK’s largest database of prospective candidates, with more than 150,000.

The merged London office has 80 staff, with plans to grow to 250 people with Aquent planning a “one-stop-shop” for marketing, communications and creative solutions business. Aquent says the acquisition is indicative of the way it wants to grow in the UK and across Europe.
