the Alternatives story...

Alternatives Logo

We were born in February 2000 out of a need for a fresh alternative. An alternative way for businesses to access great marketing people and alternative ways of working for great marketers.

  • Eimear Walsh - Alternatives
  • Barbara McGrath CEO Brightwater
  • Alternatives Awards
  • Alternatives - Awards

Along the way we accumulated knowledge, insights, networks. We invested in industry, opinions, training, relationships. We learnt from thought leaders, influencers and inspirers

2022 marks a new chapter in Alternatives' journey as we join forces with the Brightwater Group. Alternatives will continue to operate as a standalone brand, with its own bespoke, specialist marketing and digital team.

We continue to reimagine transformational talent solutions to respond to ever-changing business needs and to unlock growth.
