Our work with OCR Labs

Our specialist technology marketing recruitment team started working with OCR Labs in 2022 to support the expansion of their marketing department.

Having already appointed its Head of Marketing, Matthew Ingman, the company was looking to build out a team underneath him. The business had already worked with other marketing recruitment agencies, but as they were unable to provide the right number or quality of candidates, the hiring manager engaged with 3Search on a retained basis.  

So far, we have placed three roles into the business’ marketing department...

  • Senior Content Marketing Manager
  • Product Marketing Manager
  • Digital Marketing Manager

Expanding OCR Labs’ marketing department 

OCR Labs were looking to build out its marketing department for the first time and so needed the support of a specialist marketing recruitment agency for these talent searches.


They were looking for experienced marketers with a background in technology to support their growth. Having worked with other marketing recruitment agencies who were unable to provide the right quality or quantity of candidates, OCR Labs got in touch with 3Search for truly specialist support on their search.  


Our specialist technology marketing recruitment team were able to utilise their extensive market knowledge to advise on candidate profiles and who would best support the business as they continue to grow. Leveraging our networks, we were able to find some excellent candidates for OCR Labs. 


Representing the business throughout the recruitment process   

One challenge our team faced was encouraging tech marketers to make the move into a smaller business. As a result, our tech specialist recruiter, Katie Scott, became the face of the business. She achieved this by...


  • Taking the time to understand the company and its culture allowed her to use her strong understanding of OCR Labs to sell the business to potential candidates.
  • Weekly updates with Head of Marketing, Matthew Ingman, meant she kept Matthew up to date on their progress and understood any necessary updates from the company’s perspective, too. 

The time she dedicated to understanding the business, allowed Katie to identify three strong candidates who were an ideal fit for OCR Labs’ marketing department.  


Candidate Thought Count: 2

Now...

We continue to support OCR Labs as they grow and look to develop their marketing department even further.  

Moreover, thanks to the excellent customer service Katie and her team provided, OCR Labs have referred 3Search to two other tech start-ups who will also be expanding their marketing team.
