How Caroo nailed the perfect hire for within two days

Who are are an award winning performance marketing & development agency, managing development & digital projects for incredible eCommerce brands globally.

Herd offer a range of services from Search Engine Optimisation all the way through to Shopify Development & Digital Strategy Consultancy.

Caroo partnered with Herd to quickly fill their paid search executive role, pivotal to their growth as a performance marketing agency and more cost effective than any other traditional recruitment solution.

Understanding the role

First things first, we needed to get a better understanding of the type of person they were ultimately looking for.

We don’t cut corners when it comes to analysing our clients wants & needs, and after a few brief conversations we’d got a pretty clear picture as to what type of candidate would fit this role perfectly.

Finding the right person

It was on for Caroo. We had to find the perfect candidate and fast, and luckily we did. It only took us 2 days to source, screen and put forward our first candidate and Herd loved them. 

They were a direct fit in every single way and were hired within 20 days of being given the role.

The candidate had an exact match on the skillset Herd were looking for, fitting right in with the current team.

We’d nailed it the first time round and Herd couldn’t be more pleased.

What had to say...

“Working with Caroo was a total pleasure. 

I’d gotten so tired of repeating the same old processes when it came to hiring and nine times out of ten I’d just wished I didn’t have to do it.

It all started out when I’d learnt about Caroo through LinkedIn. 

One of their team was in touch with me directly with a proposition of placing the right person in my team at a super competitive price… The best bit? There was no upfront cost or admin fees like there are with other agencies. 

The fact that we didn’t have to fork out until the job was done was entirely reassuring as we’d had experiences with agencies in the past where they’d over promised and didn’t deliver at all…

Getting the right person in at this moment in time was crucial for us to continue delivering our quality paid search services so we were absolutely chuffed when Caroo pinged across a CV that was a total match.

Overall, for anyone considering Caroo, I’d say go for it. The value they’ve delivered since we started working with them has been absolutely worth it.

Their fees are insanely low and trust me, you won’t be using anyone else after using Caroo!”
