The Crunchy Carrots story is one of excitement and intrigue. Our name alone raises more questions than anyone else on the high street. That’s because we love being different. We love to be the topic of conversation. Overhearing the passing public say the words, “Who the f**k are Crunchy Carrots?” never gets old. And we love to tell them.
This is what we say…
We say we are a company in the modern age. We laugh together, celebrate together, even cry together, built in a foundation that understands that people work-to-live, not live-to-work. But even then, that doesn’t mean both can’t be amazing places to be! What’s wrong with the best of both worlds?
Some say we’re a marketing agency. We say we’re a place people can come and develop, thrive, grow, and have fun. And, hey, if we end up making some amazing marketing, for a whole range of diverse industries, then so be it! We believe that if the team operates at full capacity by being, happy, engaged, rewarded, and upskilled, then fantastic end results, sprinkled with wonderful creativity, are a guarantee.
I know that putting together an application takes time, commitment, and emotional investment. If you choose to apply, I promise your application will be read and considered carefully.
We look forward to meeting you.

Senior Digital Marketing Executive
37.5hrs per week (Monday to Friday)
Location: Falkirk and/or Perth
Crunchy Carrots is at an exciting point in our long-term legacy with an ever expanding client base, consistent growth in our team, and definitive ambitions to be the provider of choice for all things marketing throughout Scotland.
As such, we are looking to hire a creative and experienced Senior Digital Marketing Executive to join our patch.
Once at your desk, you will take a senior role, supporting the Digital Marketing Manager and a team of skilled Marketing Executives to deliver exceptional content for a portfolio of clients. Crunchy Carrots believes that in the marketing world there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach and with this, requires our people to be creative, understand the landscape, and be passionate about the science of modern marketing standards.
But most of all, this job is all about working with people. Although we offer flexible working, if working from home 5 days per week is your preference, then this isn’t the right job for you (we like to be upfront about this). We encourage our team to work closely and collaborate with one another, share the good with the bad, and understand each other’s pain and passions. We ask that the person in this role has leadership qualities and can support the client portfolio, share best practice, and be an excellent communicator.
Skills in digital marketing are certainly needed, with the desire to continuously grow and discover new, diverse ways of expression. Social Media, e-mail, web, and anywhere there’s a blank space is our canvas, and we want you to make the best work you’ve ever done whilst working at Crunchy! We will always give you the creative freedom to do this. After all, creativity and stress do NOT go hand in hand.
