We catch up with Sam Carr, our Analytics Recruitment Consultant, about his experience transitioning from influencer marketing to data-driven recruiter, how he's finding life at The Candidate so far, and most importantly - the free breakfasts! 


Sam Carr, Analytics Recruitment Consultant 


What is your role at The Candidate and what type of things do you work on?

I am a recruitment consultant and I work within the data and analytics market. I work on various roles such as data analyst, web analysts, data engineers etc. It’s great working with some really big clients and helping candidates find a role and working culture that suits them!


What is the culture like?

The culture is great, it’s a very supportive environment within the team. My biggest concern with starting in recruitment was the very cut-throat culture and lack of work/life balance, however so far I haven’t found that to be the case at all!


What is the best thing about working at The Candidate?

The best thing about working at The Candidate is the free breakfast… the team nights out, fun office, and supportive culture help too of course haha!


Who should speak to you?

People with a background in data and analytics or people with a desire to get into the market. You will be surprised with some of the transferrable skills built up in marketing roles for example that can be used within analytics. If you enjoy data, have a desire to build upon these skills, and break into a well-paid, fast-growing, in-demand industry - LET ME KNOW!
