About us

RedSofa Berlin was launched in 2014.

As part of the rapidly expanding RedSofa family, we were determined to create a European Creative Recruitment Hub with a real difference. In other words, do a better job than the competition and have fun at the same time.

Well, years on we're helping and placing more people than we ever thought possible and having more fun than we ever imagined.

Our philosophy is blindingly simple: only hire the very best consultants and then watch them and the business flourish. Of course, there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and the building of long-term relationships: but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior designers to global CEOs. Our expertise in most areas is now being regarded as almost unequaled.

Why I (still) like working in Advertising today – THE PEOPLE

Steve Buss 27th March 2019

By Justina Pettit.

What I enjoy the most about advertising is definitely the people I have met during my career.

People with all kinds of backgrounds.

From all over the world.

Crazy ones.

Freaks.

Not so crazy ones.

The ones who want to be crazy but never will be.

The ones who just love themselves because of working in Advertising.

The humble ones you would never think they work in Advertising.

The ones who would complain they have so much work to do but will come at 10am to work, prepare their breakfast for 1 hour and leave at 6.30 pm.

The ones doing overtime just to post random Instagram Stories of an empty agency.

The people who work late to just order free food through the agency.

The ones who complain about their jet lag after a shoot in LA.

The ones who bring cake for everyone for no reason.

The ones who write their bio in third person 😉

The ones who ask me to get them tickets to Cannes.

How the fuck do I get you tickets to Cannes??

The people who write to you one day on LinkedIn saying “thank you” because you’ve been part of their career.

Freelancers I am jealous of, because they write to me from their new home in Bali and ask to work remote.

The ones who go to every farewell just to get free booze.

The ones who will always pitch their idea straight to the CCO.

Thanks to everyone! True love <3
