LaVolta - Recruitment for the Digital Age

The Farm

We’ve been friends with LaVolta for many years now, in fact we’ve known the guy’s way before The Farm’s launch in 2004. We founded The Farm as an independent digital agency to bring together some of the best creative’s and developers in Australia. 

Primarily, we’ve been focused on building a business that offers great creative and technical solutions for marketing and branded digital content, and these days we still do this but are much more involved in early stage strategy with clients.

We briefed LaVolta on an exclusive search to find a Head of Creative. We’re not the easiest client to please, particularly on such a key role for the agency and LaVolta’s creative services practice was great. To recruit for such a role, you have to know not only our business but you have to get design and understand the digital creative landscape and they do. LaVolta conducted a tireless search and remained focused even though there was a major skills shortage. They presented an extensive list of high caliber candidates until we eventually made the hire, and we were delighted to bring Wade Kuhn on as Head of Creative. LaVolta has also helped build our team over the years both with permanent and contractors across all the disciplines of our business. They’re good guys to deal with, professional, ethical, tenacious and a lot of fun.
