Secret Escapes Recruitment Case Study
Uniting Ambition partners with Secret Escapes to build a scalable solution that supports international growth

The Client

Secret Escapes is a UK based online travel club specialising in ‘flash sales’ – limited time sales at heavily discounted prices – of luxury hotels and holidays.

Having already become market leaders in the UK since their 2011 launch, Secret Escapes has now expanded internationally into Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany and the USA, with further growth into multiple markets planned for 2015.

The Brief

Due to its plan to build business overseas, Secret Escapes approached Uniting Ambition with an on going partnership to develop their digital marketing division.

Secret Escapes needed a team of gamechanging professionals capable of hitting the ground running and providing competitive advantages to sustain international growth. Uniting Ambition were tasked with finding candidates to fill highly technical roles. These included:

  • 12 x Product Directors
  • 7x Lead Designers
  • 2x Junior Designers
  • 1x German PPC Executive

The Solution

With a reputation for deep specialisation in digital marketing recruitment, Uniting Ambition provided a full service talent strategy to Secret Escapes, sourcing top tier talent with vigorous search and selection methodology.

In an end to end solution that incorporated extensive marketing campaigns, a robust screening process and interviews based on both competency and culture, all roles were filled to the delight of client and candidates alike.

Due to delivering consistent results, Uniting Ambition was briefed to find a further team of specialist Digital Marketing Execs with language skills in Italian, Spanish and Nordic, as well a UK Display Manager to help Secret Escapes expand further into international markets.
