"What makes Communications Collaborative different is their genuine approach. They are not out to just fill a position or make a match. They are in it for the long haul—they build relationships."
What makes Communications Collaborative different is their genuine approach. They are not out to just fill a position or make a match. They are in it for the long haul—they build relationships. Eric has taken the time to learn about my business, my department and group and what our needs are, what makes us tick. Even what makes us laugh. He's friendly, familiar, entertaining but always the utmost professional. I find that to be true of the entire Collaborative team. They are creative, energetic, fun and appreciate where we're coming from—even if it doesn't benefit them. They understand that Providence is not Boston, that production is not design and that traffic is not just organized admin. They have exposed us to great resources and check-in in a non-pressured way, without stalking. What else could you ask for in a creative sourcing agency?

"They have taken the time to fully understand our needs as an agency and what we look for in a candidate."
Over the years, Communications Collaborative has been a staple in our arsenal of tools that we draw upon when we are in need of good freelance help. They have taken the time to fully understand our needs as an agency and what we look for in a candidate. They work with us to get to know our environment as well as our temperament...We can be fickle when it comes getting the right fit for our creative department. They know what their candidate can do and understand our needs so well that I always feel confident in their recommendations. I cannot speak more highly of their efforts or their coordinators. Honest, down to earth people that have a calming demeanor and a broad field of knowledge in the placement industry.
—Chuck, Content Manager, Creative, RI
"The quality of people they have sent us has been unmatched."
Working with Communications Collaborative has been great. From our initial working relationship where our need was immediate, to working with us further down the road to help develop a contingency backup plan, I have found them easy to work with and responsive. The quality of people they have sent us has been unmatched. Totally reliable, completely available, and very flexible.

"I won't use any other staffing agency."
Communications Collaborative lives up to their name. Collaboration is key to my team's output, and it's important that anyone brought in from the outside shares that spirit of give and take. With CC, that sense of working towards a singular goal starts not when the designer or copywriter walks through our door, but as soon as I pick up the phone and call with my latest last-minute need. I know they're on my side. And, the professionals that CC has brought to us have not only been consistently top notch in their right-brain creativity, but refreshingly left-brain in their responsiveness and attention to deadlines. I won't use any other staffing agency. My team, and the work we produce, are too important to me to let just anyone pull up a seat to our drafting table.
—Gene, Creative Manager Digital, MA
"Their knowledge and the focus on our industry is what really makes finding the right fit fast and very easy."
I've been working with Communications Collaborative since 2006 and I've never felt the need to go with another agency. The reps are very responsive, highly professional and always friendly. I also like the fact that they genuinely care about their freelancers; every so often they will have the occasional breakfast get-together to just talk and catch up on things. Their knowledge and the focus on our industry is what really makes finding the right fit fast and very easy. I've had many instances where I needed to fill a position quickly and the Collaborative has been able to provide me several candidates to review within a day. I have never been disappointed and have recommended them to other coworkers.

"I've been working with Communications Collaborative for the past few years and have returned because of the level of service they provide."
I've been working with Communications Collaborative for the past few years and have returned because of the level of service they provide. CC has always kept an open relationship with the creative team here, unlike many of the other agencies we've worked with. I can't recall another Business Development Manager like Eric Gendron. Eric has worked diligently in keeping a strong relationship with my peers, our home office, HR and me to provide the best service found in the professional staffing industry today. Over the years we've worked with various levels of talent from CC, some of which have become permanent staff members here at our home office and all due to our continued business partnership with Communications Collaborative.
