Hartas & Craig is a specialist creative recruitment agency, deeply connected with the creative community in Australia and overseas. Our focus is fostering creative careers, helping to grow the two most valuable assets of any business: the people and culture.

Whether it’s a one-off project or a full-time role, we help agencies and creative talent find each other. We pride ourselves on being fair, honest and ethical throughout the process.

The secret of our success is that we look for specifics: the right skills, experience, personality and cultural fit. We genuinely care about relationships. It’s about quality, not quantity.

Our experience within the creative industry is unparalleled. So when we say we understand, we mean it. Just like the industry and its top people, we constantly evolve to be the best we can be. We love what we do and our results speak for themselves.


Hartas & Craig is all about integrity, relationships and trust. To build that relationship and trust we will meet with you in person. Where geography prevents, then via technology.

We will listen, ask questions and challenge your creative values. We will gain a complete understanding of your ambitions and aspirations.

Respecting your professional and creative wisdom, we’ll keep you informed at every step of the journey. We’ll only suggest roles that are the right creative and cultural fit for you. In pursuit of that perfect fit, we’ll be proactive, push boundaries, go further and deliver beyond traditional recruitment.

Working together, we’ll be creative, bold and grow your career.

Our business is based on fairness, honesty and integrity. You can trust us to push boundaries, to exceed expectations and deliver.

To build that trusting relationship, we’ll always ask to meet you in person. We’ll listen, question, and challenge your perceptions. We think globally in all our pursuits, and in our pursuit of the right clients and candidates.

Only once we have a complete understanding of your needs will we introduce people to you. We know your time is truly valuable so we only send you relevant resumes. Less is more, and being selective is an art form.

It’s how we’ve built our reputation for going beyond traditional recruitment. Just as we will do for you.



Senior Designer

Corinna and Annabel have looked after me over the years like family. Creatives in this industry need nurturing, and Hartas & Craig get that. Yet they are never patronising. I find them open and sincere and know I can go to them for advice and support whenever I need it. They’re also the queens of agency culture. They’ve fine-tuned the art of sending me to places with workplace dynamics that fit, and visa versa.


Senior Creative

The best recruitment team I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with worldwide, bar none.

The Cavemen

Creative Team

Corinna made us want to own a yacht, and has helped us get a lot closer.



Corinna, thank you so much for taking me on and connecting me with Aaron. It’s heartening that I was able to find work here so smoothly, and all due to your leap of faith!


Creative Director

Corinna  & Annabel always deliver with someone particularly good. Dependability makes one’s life so much more pleasant.



Hartas & Craig are a pleasure to work with. They take the time to listen and really understand a brief. They are professional and get back to you when they say they will.


Creative Strategist

Corinna and Annabel from Hartas & Craig are one of a kind. Their understanding of strategy, digital and creative is second to none. When you spend most if not all of your time work, where and who you spend it with is so important. Corinna and Annabel understand the pressures that come with working in the creative world and worked tirelessly to find not only a place where I could do my best work, but where I would also have a good time in the process.


Creative Director

Harder than finding the right person for a job, is finding the right headhunter to find the right person. As a former creative, no one is better qualified to know what to look for. Corinna`s professional, personable and gives results.



Culture is everything in this business. It can make people perform out of their skin. Do work they never thought they`d be capable of. It`s the defining difference between a good agency and a great one.

Cultivating it, in an industry where people are fickle, temperamental, passionately individual and wonderfully erratic, is extremely difficult. Just one bad egg entering a culture can bring it down.

When looking for people, it isn`t enough just to hire people who “fit” the culture, you need to bring in people who add to it. It creates an upward spiral.

Hartas & Craig approach each placement with both parties interests at heart. Their value is the magic that happens when the right people are in the right place.


Creative Partner

The team at Hartas and Craig have been great partners for the Royals. They understand our culture and the kinds of people we love.
