Christine Richter, Creative Operations Manager

We haven’t used a recruiter in ages, working closely with the YunoJuno Talent team we moved to sourcing 100% via the YJ Marketplace.

Marie Brittain, Resource Manager

YunoJuno have been brilliant in identifying remote working freelancers who always deliver. From first introductions and telephone calls, to brief discussions and final delivery, the key has been good, clear and honest communication.

Nick Astor, Content Strategy & Execution Lead

The freelancers on YunoJuno are consistently of the highest calibre. It is also the easiest and most transparent recruitment service I have ever dealt with.

Christian Anderson-Ramshall, Head of Digital Production

Implementing YunoJuno has taken much of the manual management out of this system, reducing administrative workload and improving operational efficiency. The way we on-board and pay our valued freelancers is now a totally different experience.

Dan de Lord, Talent Strategy & Acquisition Director

YunoJuno are my recruitment saviours! I’ve worked with them for a few years now and they’ve helped with many resourcing challenges. The platform is really easy to use, it provides a wide range of freelancers to interact with and also means I’m only dealing with one vendor – which makes my internal financing hassle free!

Steph Fair, Creative Services Manager

Freelance support can be a great option for your business. It gives you the advantage of flexibility and the power to hire specialist expertise when it’s truly needed. Independent contractors can be self managing and great additions to the team.
