The Challenge

Blossom Educational, a dynamic EdTech company located in Northwood, UK, was facing a unique recruitment challenge. They were experiencing rapid growth and needed to build a high-performing team across various departments: Account Executives for their GTM team, talented Designers, and experienced Senior Marketing staff. However, the EdTech industry is highly specialised, and Blossom was determined to find individuals who weren’t just qualified but also passionate about educational technology and a strong fit for their company culture.
