During 2021/22 Care Development East worked closely with Spider, the region’s Online Job Advertiser, to manage their direct candidate attraction process. When Care Development East were looking for a temp to join their marketing team, Spider was pleased to introduce polkadotfrog, the recruitment agency division of Spider, to ensure their client’s needs were met.

Yasmin Wagland, one of polkadotfrog’s Recruitment Specialists worked closely with Christian Bone, Chief Executive of Care Development East to fully understand their requirements for this brand-new position in his company so she could proactively source the ideal candidate for their exciting Events and Marketing role.

From understanding the brief to writing the job spec Yasmin used all her skills and myriad of tools to hand pick a shortlist of 7 suitable candidates for Christian to review. Christian shortlisted 3 candidates, including Kelly who Yasmin contacted directly about the opportunity! The rest, as they say, is history!  Kelly sealed the deal and was offered the job…she impressed so much they offered her the role on a permanent basis rather than a temp contract, which goes to show their commitment to and belief in Kelly being the right person for them.

After Kelly had successfully joined the team, she was quick to make her mark in working with Christian and the Care Development Team to deliver the hugely successfully Suffolk Care Awards at The Hanger, Milsons Kesgrave.  A very prestigious, well attended and fantastically organised event!

We love to share Client and Candidate experiences of working with us.

Here is what they both had to say…


“Yasmin was amazing support from the get-go from our initial call. She was friendly, polite, informative and no question was unanswered! After the call, we had emails back and forth as I had lots of questions and Yasmin came back promptly with all the answers!  We had some more calls and Yasmin was super supportive and rooting for me, she gave me the confidence I needed to go for the role and prepare for the interview. Yasmin was personable and I felt like she was a great friend in a professional way!

She is very good at her job, and I think she is a credit to your team.

Thank you, Yasmin, wish you all the best in your role as well & thank you for your support in me getting mine! :)”


Christian Bone, Chief Executive at Care Development East said:

“Kelly has proved to be an excellent appointment and we are grateful to Yasmin and her colleagues for finding such a great candidate. Kelly has settled in really well and is now a real asset to the Care Development East team as she proved recently when organising the Suffolk Care Awards at Kesgrave Hall which were attended by nearly 200 guests.”


Michelle Pollard, MD of Spider and polkadotfrog said

“We were thrilled to work with Care Development East, and they are a company we have admired. The ability to offer a consultative approach to clients across the region and being able to offer the best fit, which suits our client is exactly why we believe Spider and Polkadotfrog are the dream team”.
