------------------------------------

CREATIVE TEAMS REQUIRED - URGENT!
We are urgently seeking 2 creative teams for a full-time position to work on projects at a large international agency in Amsterdam, starting in May. In both cases the candidates must have experience working on international accounts.

Team 1 needs:
1 x Native English Conceptual Copywriter / Copywriter
1 x Art Director. Any nationality but must be able to communicate well in English

Team 2 needs:
1 x Russian Conceptual Copywriter / Copywriter with 'westernised' skills
1 x Art Director. Any nationality but must be able to communicate well in English

If you're interested or know anybody who might fit the bill please contact Casper or Sandra at The Collective ASAP. We might even offer a reward to the person who finds us a suitable Russian candidate!

------------------------------------

TRANSCREATION
The past few months have seen a healthy interest from clients in transcreation, and to encourage more jobs of this type The Collective has put up a new one-page website http://www.transcreation.info/. Thanks to all of you who’ve indicated willingness to offer this service.

------------------------------------

FOOTBALL CRAZY
In February we announced that The Collective will be entering a team in The Lieverdjes soccer tournament, which takes place on May 31st.

Training will begin Thursday 17th April in The Westerpark, Amsterdam. Meet at 19:00 at the main entrance. We still have room for more players – anybody with two or more functioning limbs is eligible! If you’re interested you can just turn but it’s always nice to know who to expect - email info@thecollective.net.

(Yes, the pic is from last year - please ingore the date!)

------------------------------------

NEW COLLECTIVE WEBSITE – COUNTING DOWN
We plan to launch the all-new Collective website on Thursday 29th May. Many thanks to all who have sent in updated profiles. And those of you who haven’t yet – please do so. You know it makes sense!!

------------------------------------

LAUNCH PARTY
It would be nothing short of rude to re-launch The Collective’s main website without marking the occasion with a party. So a party we shall have!! Please “save the date” Thursday 29th May. We’ll be in touch soon with proper invites.

------------------------------------

AFTERSHOW PARTY/END-OF-MONTH DRINKS
This month’s end of month drinks are combined as an after-show party for the ADCN Awards which take place in Amsterdam on 24th April.

Date: Friday 25th April
Time: 17:00 till 20:00
Place: Vijzelstraat 67, 1017HG Amsterdam (The Jack Stafford Collection)

We appreciate that not all of you live anywhere near The Netherlands, let alone the centre of Amsterdam, but we do want you to know we think of you!
