About Brödernas

By serving burgers and pizza of the highest quality, Brödernas has grown to become one of Sweden's fastest growing restaurant chains – with over 75+ restaurants across Sweden. In order to continue its growth journey, Brödernas is continuously looking for the best possible employees - from restaurant managers to seasonal workers.

Objectives & Goals

  • To strengthen Brödernas Employer Brand
  • To reach potential top candidates – with an interest in food, drink & service
  • To increase the number of relevant applications for Brödernas open positions


In order to reach as many relevant candidates as possible, Brödernas chose to focus on targeted advertising on Sweden's largest social media platforms - Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat. Using our unique combination of data and interest-driven advertising, short video ads were targeted to candidates with an interest in cooking and service.

Step 1 – We built awareness of working at the Brothers:

In the first stage of the campaign, we built awareness of a career at Brödernas through short employee interviews.

Step 2 – We highlighted the best things about working at Brödernas:

In the second stage of the campaign, we re-advertised to candidates who had shown an interest in working at Brödernas and highlighted some of the best things about working at Brödernas – from secure working conditions to good development opportunities.

Step 3 – We invited candidates who had shown interest in the Brothers to apply

In the third stage of the campaing, Brödernas had the opportunity to sponsor specific vacancies to those candidates who had shown interest in a career at Brödernas, as well as to other potential top candidates.


The campaign produced strong results and helped Brödernas strengthen their Employer Brand among relevant candidates. Between 21 January 2022 and 21 March 2022 alone, the social media campaign generated 927,421 ad views, 3,922 visits to the Brödernas careers page and a 40% increase in applications (on average per month).
