About Firehead

The go-to place for European recruitment in digital communications.

Firehead is the only European boutique recruitment agency working exclusively in digital communications. Find your next job, hire a professional communicator, read up on industry trends, or join our community.

CJ Walker, founder of FireheadWho we are
Company director CJ Walker describes herself as a ‘red-headed Cajun living in Europe’. She founded Firehead in 2007 after recruiting communicators for several large multinational clients. Spotting the need for a bespoke service in digital communications, she has since worked hard to develop a high-quality, personalised recruitment service based on a deep understanding of clients’ digital needs and on interviewing each candidate individually.

Firehead is now on the Preferred Supplier list of dozens of major multinationals, as well as smaller companies across a variety of sectors. We’re proud that most of our work comes from word-of-mouth and repeat business. At Firehead, it’s our professional expertise and personal touch that make all the difference.

How we meet your needs
We are connected to the best talent in the digital communications field. We also consult and supply to employers, small and large, across the northern hemisphere. Together, this has enabled Firehead to become the go-to place for jobs in digital communications.

The field is dynamic but our main recruitment areas at present are:

  • Content management
  • Content strategy and marketing

  • Technical communications
  • Web design and development
  • Usability

Experienced, international, niche
CJ worked for 15 years as a technical communicator before founding Firehead. The company has now grown to become Europe’s market leader in digital communications recruitment, opening offices in the UK (2007), Sweden (2008) and France (2010). We know the industry, the requirements, the atmosphere, the tools and the people.

Network with us
Firehead is highly active in the communications community. We co-organised the world’s first conference in content strategy, CS Forum in Paris in 2010 and, for two years, Firehead’s founder CJ Walker was president of the Society for Technical Communication’s Transalpine chapter. She is currently a Council member of the Institute of Technical and Scientific Communication (ISTC), as their International Representative.
