Digital recruiter Elissa Krajcer has quit FBI recruitment three months after the company declared she was the right person for the job following a worldwide hunt.

Krajcer’s new role is as director at digital, advertising and media recruitment firm talent Transfer. She said in an announcement from the company: “It’s great to be working with people who get it.”

Her three months with FBI Recruitment was preceded with seven months as head of digital at ICUR. Before that, she worked at Everjoy Consulting in the same role.

She said: “It’s difficult being a digital recruiter in a traditional firm. Digital has fundamentally altered the way ad agencies and creative businesses operate. Recruiters need to understand this to be able to introduce the best talent in this challenging environment.”  


Some champagne, yesterday

Transfer group owner Bart Jawien said that the appointment of Krajcer would see him focus on developing other areas of the business including opening offices in Hong Kong and London before the end of the year.

He said the pair had been friends for a decade. He added: “Ten years ago we were talking about the problems with the way recruitment was handled in the digital and creative space — now we’re working together providing an alternative.”

The pair pointed out in their announcement that they had marked the occasion with a $100+ bottle of vintage Veuve Cliquot champagne.
