Cummins and Partners has started the new year with six new hires for its Melbourne Agency

Lily Lazzarotti, Melany Ang and Jamie Clifford join as art directors, with Annabel Begeng, Claudia Sarosiek and Sarah Vanderschoot coming on board as writers.

Said Sean Cummins CEO Cummins&Partners said: “With an industry leading staff retention rate, the Cummins & Partners creative department has remained largely unchanged in recent times, but there has been a spate of other Melbourne agencies offering jobs to our well-trained highly professional teams.

“It’s been a bit of known industry thing that when you’ve worked for us you must be pretty good. We have a culture of nurturing, mentoring and developing very good creative brains, who are also very hardworking and nice people.

“Clearly agencies like Thinkerbell, TBWA, M&C Saatchi, The Monkeys and even the new agency Howatson+White think so as they have all enthusiastically chased our teams and whilst we hate to see our people leave we know two things: our culture breeds more talent and most of our people come back!” added Cummins

Heath Collins, creative director at Cummins&Partners added, “We are working hard at creating a combination of brilliant senior talent and exciting new talent and nothing in the middle. We feel rejuvenated by the new crew we’ve recruited and we are equally very proud of the teams that have gone and joined very good agencies.”

Added Cummins, “Obviously that means we do something right and the Cummins&Partners influence on the Melbourne advertising scene continues to grow. I guess though if clients want the real deal in terms of creative…they can always come straight to us at the source. Sorry I have to say that only because it’s true!”
