Why Us?

Your award-winning eCommerce recruitment agency

Hello there! We’re cranberry panda, a multi award-winning ecommerce recruitment agency with a passion for online retail

Whether you're hiring a new ecommerce team member or looking for a new digital job, we're here to help! 

We can’t wait to hear from you … but before you grab your phone or head over to your inbox, why not learn a little more about us? If you already know who we are, scroll down (and down!) and take a look at our panda profiles and check out our reviews

1. Our founders are actually ecommerce heroes themselves

Yep, our founders have been in the industry since 1999 – and by in the industry, we don’t just mean in recruitment. Their proud history includes founding eibDigital and the legendary buyagift.co.uk. In fact, it was their own frustration with recruitment agencies - identifying the wrong ecommerce candidates for their businesses - that led to our development. 

2. Everyone here at cranberry towers knows and loves the sector too

You’ll find that many of our pandas have actually worked in ecommerce roles before - from online merchandising and email marketing to social media and SEO. And those that haven’t are truly passionate about the sector, going beyond the daily 9-5 to take part in tailored training sessions and attend local events and workshops. 

3. Our ecommerce specialisms make us powerful

Each panda works on an ecommerce discipline (or two!) that they know and love. We refer to this as an ecommerce specialism. Our specialisms include: analytics & insightsonline marketing (social media, SEM, SEO, PPC, paid social, affiliate, CRM & email marketing), ecommerce (online trading & merchandising, product management), and creative (digital design & content marketing). 

How do our specialisms help? Well, when you’re working with our pandas, you can relax, knowing that you’ll be receiving reliable advice and award-winning support. What’s more, if you’re a candidate, you can be sure that our pandas will understand your day-to-day pressures, your unique skillset, and - most importantly - just how amazing you are. And if you’re a client? You’ll have access to a wealth of industry knowledge and insight, and your consultant will really understand the skills and experience that your new team member needs.

Oh and, by the way, did you know that we can also help you build an entire ecommerce department? 

4. our non-executive directors are extraordinary 

They sure are! We're incredibly proud to introduce you to our non-executive directors Ashley Friedlen, founder of Econsultancy and member of the government’s Digital Advisory Board, and Louie Evans, founder of Asclepius Global, the £55m recruitment agency for the healthcare industry. 

5. our purpose in life? creating happiness one job at a time

Here at cranberry towers, we live by our values and we’re dedicated to our purpose. We go above and beyond to ensure that we're always matching the right person to the right opportunity …

 … but don't just take our word for it!

We were named ‘Best Niche Agency – Sector’ at the 2015 Mara Awards; here’s what the judges had to say about us:

“The winner of this category submitted a robust entry filled with examples of genuine value-added services within a very tight and competitive sector. Tangible statistics supported obvious thought-leadership and a vast understanding of candidate and client demands.” 

We’ve previously won awards for Best Marketing Campaign (2014) and Best Client Service (2013 & 2012) and we were 1 of only 4 finalists in The Drum Network's '2015 Recruitment Agency of the Year' category.
