The Projects

Businesses do some pretty weird stuff to market themselves. But we'll bet you a tenner they're not as weird as the stuff we do. Ever seen a company deliver pies with £50 baked into them? Fill an office with rescue dogs? Put thousands of fake parking tickets on cars? Hire a cherry picker to win new clients? Hand out branded condoms? No? Well, you better check out our projects then.

 

When it’s Valentine’s Day, most brands do some generic, boring marketing. Not us, though. Nope. We handed out condoms instead. Not weird at all, that. Ah, project protection. What can you say about this? Well, its Caroo's job to protect people looking for jobs from rubbish job ads...

We designed a billboard to put up in Manchester city centre. The only problem was, no one would display it. So, being the innovative folks we are, we came up with an alternative. People say that sex sells. Turns out thats not a completely unfounded statement. So. We designed a billboard...

Getting new clients is hard when you’re a startup. Most times, you don’t even get past reception. Unless you’re in a cherry picker. Yeah, that’ll work. Or so we thought. You've got to get your business in front of the right people, whatever it takes. And when your...

Last year, we welcomed some amazing brands to our platform. So, in December, to wish them all a merry Christmas, we visited their offices to drop off some Alan Sugar mugs. As you do. We've done some pretty weird crap this year to promote our brand. So, we thought, why not end on a particularly...

To let Manchester know about our recruitment technology platform, mobile app for job seekers and website for employers, we put on some cheap hi-vis jackets and stuck fake parking tickets on cars, lorries, bins, house boats and bikes. Some of them weren't even parked. This is one of the scariest...

In-house recruiters have it tough. Missing candidates, pressure from hiring managers, tons of roles to fill. So, what better way to show them how much we appreciate them than a massage? In-house recruitment is a tougher job than being a Himalayan sherpa. And there are facts to back that up....

Where do people use their phones and download apps? On the toilet of course. So we decided, that to get people to download the Caroo app we would get some branded loo roll that says, while you're having a poo, download Caroo. And to get people to see this triple-ply paper sheet goodness, we...

#ProjectPie came first. But our next stunt has to be bigger. See the movie below. Office dogs are just a gimmick. They don’t have anything to do with culture. Right? Well, whilst you can’t rely on just dogs to build a happy workforce, there are studies out there that show...

Check out our #projectpie video We love in-house recruiters. Northern in-house recruiters. And because we love them so much, we decided to deliver some summer treats to recruitment teams in some of the North's biggest brands. I mean, we say summer treats. What we actually delivered...
