Caroo Helps JoinTheDot With Effortless Recruitment

JoinTheDots, the award-winning consumer insight agency, has joined forces with North-West start up, Caroo, to fulfil its latest recruitment drive.

The Northern-Quarter-based agency has experienced continued growth over the last 12 months and as a result was looking to fill a number of roles including Technology Engineers.

Having heard about the Caroo platform and wanting to take advantage of the offer of posting unlimited roles for free, the team signed up.

Chris Hine, Talent Acquisition Consultant at JoinTheDots said: “I’d previously worked at a recruitment agency and heard a lot about Caroo. It was clearly making an impact on the recruitment scene, so I was really intrigued to try it myself.

“The platform was really easy to use and delivers on its promise – candidates that specifically have the skills and interests that the roles we posted actually needed. We weren’t bombarded by ‘chancers’ – just really strong candidates.

“Within a day we had received one particularly strong ‘expression of interest’ that really stood out. We called them and within a week they had been recruited – started the role and the best bit – no recruitment fee! I’m really impressed with it!”

Gareth Peterson, managing director of Caroo said: “We’ve worked with HR professionals and talent managers from some of the UK’s biggest brands to develop a recruitment platform that is actually fit for purpose – delivers candidates that actually fit the role and ultimately makes recruitments easier.

“We’re made up that Chris has found the use of the platform so easy and successful. We want as many other companies to sign up before April - while the platform is free to all businesses across the North West and Yorkshire.”

Caroo focuses on tech, digital and creative roles as well as all head office functions. Candidate profiles are anonymous, and no data is collected on gender, age, or race etc – it’s purely skills, interests and experience.

The platform has over 20,000 candidates from across the North of England, as well as more than 400 brands already utilising Caroo. Meanwhile recruitment agencies are not allowed on the platform.

Until 1st April, Caroo offers unlimited job ad postings, unlimited users, and the ability to contact as many candidates as wanted.

From the 1st April, Caroo is monetising the employer product. Businesses will pay a flat fee of £99 +vat per month for unlimited use of the service, making it the best value recruitment platform out there. Candidates will still be able to use Caroo for free.

Candidate profiles are anonymous, and no data is collected on gender, age, or race etc – it’s purely down to skills, interests and experience.
