For anyone who knows Ben, you would probably describe him as a burst of energy with a unique style and individual personality. It is no different to how he presents his work ethic and his relatable demeanour when speaking with candidates and clients alike.
His job adverts are easily distinguished from the rest, (they usually have a funny pun or two thrown in) and he loves a good joke, we debate if he is funny or not, but we can let you decide.
Here at cranberry panda we are all about encouraging individual characters in our consultants. No matter your background, interests or personality, we all find a way to click together as we have the common interest to succeed in our personal careers and as a company.
So, leaving the floor to Mr Ben Lerch who will describe in very much his own way who he is, what he does and why he should be your first port of call for digital designers with an edge.
