Our Senior Recruitment Consultant, Ceri Whitney, works on digital contract roles here at The Candidate. So that you can get to know her a little better, we asked her all about specialising in all things contract, workplace culture, and bringing her dogs to work!

When it comes to contract recruitment, Ceri explains that it not only allows businesses to access the best talent available, but it also allows them to find candidates quickly, significantly shortening the typical recruitment process. Contractors work on either an hourly or daily rate, or even on a fixed term contract with a pro rata salary. For contractors, working on a freelance basis allows them to work on varied and exciting projects, building up an impressive portfolio!

Ceri Whitney, Senior Recruitment Consultant - Contract


What is the culture like?

The culture is great, I’ve found that everyone has been so welcoming and supportive. Unlike some cut-throat agencies you hear about we operate on the basis that as long as “The Candidate” places the role that’s all that matters.

What is the best thing about working at The Candidate?

The social environment, even from little things like lunches together, drinks after work, team events and the overall positive energy in the office… plus, I also love the fact that I can bring my pups to work!
