Meet our Head of Talent

Becs Baker

Having survived a Physics degree and an early career in recruitment, I spent nine years in client services with a wine specialist creative agency before joining Pearlfisher as a Client Director. My must-do attitude, understanding of complex briefs and a natural understanding of commercial constraints meant that I was able to oversee some of our most demanding clients, constantly pushing boundaries and questioning expectations to ensure the utmost effectiveness in design and branding.

Four years on, and I am now Pearlfisher's Head of Talent, dedicated to creating a best in class culture and industry-defining, award-winning work that is driven and inspired by identifying, recruiting, retaining and developing the best talent for Pearlfisher at all levels and within all disciplines.
