What Charle had to say

To date Candi have supported us to make several contract and permanent hires.

Charle was founded in 2018, the business has been growing steadily over the last 18 months and at key stages I have required designers, marketers, content professionals and front end shopify developers to support a range ecommerce projects.

Candi has provided an efficient recruitment process and delivered several key hires who are exceptional within their fields.

Candi understood Charles hiring needs and ethos, they knew that to work in a successful start-up every hire is key, as the new team members would need to keep up with a fast-moving dynamic agency environment.

Our permanent hires were for a New Business Manager and several Shopify Developers to support our next stage of growth, these hires had to be right!

Our contract hires were for ecommerce Digital Designers and Marketing Professionals that are used to working in agency environments and used to supporting customers directly.

Candi offered advice with regards to the structure of the campaigns and reassured us that we had right interview process in place.

With their support the hiring process was efficient and well managed, the talent portal they created was personalised to us and held all essential information regarding each candidate. The shortlisting was a one click process, the feedback was easy to present and the employment offer and onboarding was straight forward for all parties.

I highly recommend Candi for any digital freelance or permanent hires.
