As someone with little knowledge of the UK eCommerce job market and plans to move from the other side of the world, I approached Cranberry Panda.
Yasmin has been an excellent mentor and one of the most knowledgeable and kind recruiters I have come into contact with, assisting with everything from career advice, my CV and putting me in front of one of the UK’s largest retailers before I had even landed.
Working with Yasmin was an absolute pleasure and she comes highly recommended.

cranberry panda - 'Best Niche Agency - Sector'
Yasmin is the best recruiter that I have ever met! She was very attentive to my needs. She has maintained regular contact, provided me with some very useful feedback and been very supportive in helping me with my personal development. She provided me with resources that made the interview easier as I knew a lot about the job I was applying for. If you’re looking for a job in digital media and want someone who’s not just sitting at a desk fleshing out their candidate base and actually really know what they’re talking about – talk to Yasmin.

Yasmin is an excellent recruitment consultant, thinking out of the box, providing an outstanding follow-up and achieving results. She first contacted me in January for a job and 4 months later I was hired by my new company. Throughout the whole process I felt understood and taken in consideration, which is really appreciated.

As a young professional in a competitive market, searching for employment can be an overwhelming task, but Yasmin was the best professional support I could hope for. Diligent, friendly, honest and encouraging, she showed sincere dedication not only to her profession but to me as a candidate. Anyone who has the pleasure of liaising with her, either client-side or as a jobseeker, is in very good hands indeed. Thank you!

Haley was responsible for placing me in a new role in Ecommerce. I found Haley to be professional, approachable and extremely proactive.
Her experience in Ecommerce means that she understands the nature of the business and has a working knowledge of the roles she recruits for, which is obvious when speaking to her. This meant that Haley is able to successfully match the right person for the job and visa versa.
As a candidate, I felt supported through the whole process and I would happily recommend Haley

Haley was a pleasure to work with. Her experience in Ecommerce and marketing enables her to understand the market where she closely aligns opportunities with the right candidate. I found her to be proactive, energetic and professional and highly recommend her to anyone.
Marketing and Technology Professional
I had previously searched for a job for over a year and found it difficult to secure a position when searching independently. This time around, within 4 weeks of Yasmin contacting me and helping with my job search I had secured my dream job. Not only is Yasmin extremely friendly and professional but she is very dedicated to what she does. She made a process that had previously been stressful and quite daunting, stress free and straight forward. It's easy to see that she is incredibly passionate about her job and the people she works with. Working with Yasmin was an absolute pleasure and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to secure a creative position.

Yasmin has always been very personable, approachable, honest and a very effective consultant. Her friendly, yet professional style is like a breath of fresh air and I always know where I stand with her, which to me is key within a client - consultant relationship. I know I can count on her to find the right role for me, and not just one to tick of the list. I would definitely recommend Yasmin to all my creative friends and colleagues!

Both Jonathan and his
co-founder Joe Mountain have been in
ecommerce for 14 years, having started and
sold an ecommerce development agency
called e-inbusiness and also a hugely
successful etailer, Buyagift.co.uk.
cranberry panda has quickly grown into the
‘go to’ agency for ecommerce teams looking
for new people but also advice and
consultancy about the sector.
Working with Jonathan was a real pleasure as I felt that he truly took the time to understand my skills and experience, and what I was looking for in a new role. For a recruiter to have this type of expert industry knowledge combined with such a personable approach is extremely valuable! I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a role in the e-commerce industry and I hope to work with him again in the future.
Jonathan just "gets" e-commerce having, worked on its coal-face in marketing, project management and more. I therefore turned to him when he founded Cranberry Panda for our recruitment needs. He did not disappoint. Jonathan quickly found me a key team player who exactly suited the required role. What is impressive about his service is how well the candidate matched our needs both professionally and temperamentally too. I have no hesitation in recommending him and Cranberry Panda for digital recruitment.

Jonathan is the most considerate & personable recruitment consultant I’ve worked with. He has a sound knowledge of the industry, always kept me well informed & best of all, offers genuinely helpful & relevant advice. Jonathan found me a fantastic role & I’d highly recommend working with him.
