Creativepool buys OiMoi
We're delighted to announce that creativepool has just purchased Sheffield based OiMoi Ltd - the specialist creative jobs board for the North of England.
In recent years, OiMoi had built a substantial reputation for providing qualified creative candidates across the northern counties. By acquiring OiMoi, we have extended creativepool’s reach in this region and can offer access to the new creative talent – some 1,500 bod’s in total – on OiMoi’s database.
