The ilk Big Hello

We really want to get to know you. And you ought to get to know us too! Not through faceless forms on recruitment websites, or suspiciously positive third parties. But face to face (digital or otherwise).

So reach out direct, rather than through a recruiter, and we’ll say a big hello – to the tune of £500! As soon as you’ve passed your three month probation, you’ll see that nice little top-up in your bank account. So when we take you out for a beer (once that’s allowed), the first round’s on you!

Please fill out the form below, or email nev@ilkagency.com with your CV to apply.
