The client

Purplebricks is the world’s fastest growing estate agency and true disruptor. It floated on the AIM London Stock Exchange with a CAPEX of circa £1billion within a year of launch.

Purplebricks has transformed the way that people buy and sell houses in the UK. Combining great people, local expertise and 24/7 technology, it  offers a fairer, efficient, and more transparent way of buying, selling and letting property, saving thousands of customers from ‘commisery’ every year.   

A justifiable market disrupter, in the same vein as Uber and Amazon, Purplebricks is one of the most exciting businesses in the UK right now. With a major ambition to become a global leader, the business is on a very interesting journey as it prepares to launch Purplebricks US, having just launched in Australia.

The relationship

Since the organisation has grown at a phenomenal rate from its head office in Solihull, Purplebricks is constantly requiring high quality employees with a broad range of talents. Given the pace of recent growth, it is important that candidates have the temperament and pragmatism to be able to manage an extremely high pace of change. There are very few other businesses in the Midlands currently going through such a period of hypergrowth.

ESA Marketing have worked with Purplebricks for the following roles over the last two years: Marketing Director, CRM Manager, Digital Acquisition Manager, Paid Search Specialist, Digital Designer(s), Mobile Web Designer and Head of Communications.

On each occasion, our specialist consultants provided a thorough face-to-face candidate screening service, and submitted a refined shortlist of candidates to Purplebricks for the hiring managers to review. Interviews were arranged following an in-depth client briefing.

The result

ESA Group consultants completed the final selection process by making the offer to the successful candidates and provided thorough feedback to all who interviewed.
