Our Experience Recruiting with Graft: Applied Digital Marketing

 7th Feb 2019

As a thriving marketing agency, we’re always looking for ways to grow our offerings. In this instance, we were hoping to expand our tech offering by starting a search for a junior web developer.

At Applied Digital Marketing, we’re not only developing marketing websites and other software solutions, but we also offer tech service and support. Our team were on the lookout for someone who could help us develop our strengths when it came to tech.


Graft Make an Impression

Before beginning our search, our Managing Director, Steve Sykes, had attended a round-table event focusing on recruitment, hosted by Connect Yorkshire, a local non-for-profit organisation that helps businesses to grow.

Graft’s founder and director, Melanie Parker, was also in attendance, and immediately made an impression. First and foremost because of her involvement in local business networking and secondly because of her approachability.



Once Graft were aware of our job search, they got stuck into the work. The effort and tenacity shown to us in Graft’s search for potential candidates was immense. Melanie took the time to understand who we were as a company, individually and what career opportunities we can offer in order to whittle down the right candidate.

As Graft got to know us, they also spoke plainly. They promised to work hard for us to find the right candidate while remaining down-to-earth. Soon enough, we had a potential employee coming for an interview. This quick and engaging process had not been our experience with other recruiters.


Helping Our Company to Deliver Goals

After completing our interview processes, we knew Graft had delivered the perfect candidate to our doorstep. We’re now 5 months-in with our new Junior Web Developer, Luke West, and his integration into the team and work has been incredible.

Thanks to Graft, we’ve been able to expand the services we offer and look towards growth for 2019. We have the confidence we can deliver our goals because of the team Graft helped to put together.
