The Candidate’s Advent Calendar – 5 December

Here at The Candidate HQ we are full of Christmas spirit, and our agency advent calendar prize draw is going from strength to strength!


It's the 5 December and we are on day 3 of our deliveries. It has been a massive success so far. Each day we have drawn an agency out of the hat that will appear behind our agency advent calendar. We hope you are excited to see who has won today's, and will therefore be 5 December on our advent calendar?


The winner for the 5 December window is…performance planning, buying specialist and digital centre of excellence, Carat Manchester!

Well done folks - we will be delivering a Christmas gift to you all today - so look out for us!


The Candidate HQ: Finalists and awarded Highly commended at the Mara Awards 2012.


Carat Manchester is part of the global Carat agency, and they are a team of 200, with the whole brand employing 5,000 people worldwide. They make a big difference to the brand and win big. Carat Manchester won 'Media Agency of the Year'  at the 2012 Fresh Awards. What an achievement! Well done to all!


The agency is also benevolent, and they support a charity each year. In addition, they make a difference within their field. They recognised that some of their blogger contacts were unusable. Therefore, they held a bloggers day that benefited bloggers, and taught them how to increase their page authority. This then improved the platforms that represent their clients. We feel initiatives such as this make Carat stand out from the rest. We wish Carat all the best for 2013, and continued success.



A Merry Christmas to Elliot and his team, from The Candidate.

Digital Marketing Recruitment Guide Digital Agency Showcase


It didn’t take long to build rapport with Laura, as her excellent communication skills shone through from the start. She placed me in my most recent position and was very thorough in liaising between myself and my prospective employer at the time - an often understated skill. Moving to a new city for the position at short notice was not going to be easy, but Laura made sure I was as informed and prepped as possible when going through the interview stages and seemed to always have my best interests at heart. One of the most personable recruiters I have worked with, and I will certainly be calling her first when I am considering changing position again!
