Candidate attraction

Whatever vacancy you need to fill, we can create an online advert to attract the right candidates.

Within just four hours of receiving your brief, we will:

  • research the role and which appropriate job boards to post to.
  • write the advert and tailor it to those boards.
  • advertise your vacancy for you.
  • filter the response.

Send us a few details about the vacancy.

Media buying

With our years of experience working with online job boards, we've established strong relationships with all of the key mainstream and niche websites.

For you, this means a single point of contact for all of your online needs with expert advice on which job boards will give you the best results.

Recruitment agencies outsource all their buying of job board advertising to Candidate Source.

Send us an email with your requirements and our team will be in touch to see how we can help you.

Who we are

We’re an experienced team of online recruitment marketers. But we’ve been in your shoes too – so we understand the pressure and demands on a recruitment consultant. We have a unique skillset that means we can precisely write (or rewrite) your adverts to maximise job board exposure and appeal to the right candidates.

To complete the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), we will filter the response to ensure you get the role filled with the very best candidate.

A big hello from...

  • Michelle Davies

    Michelle is our founder and looks after our sales, consultant training and credit control. Michelle has worked in recruitment for 14 years so there’s nothing she doesn’t know about the business. In fact, she’s the one who discovered that start up businesses and small agencies needed help with attracting candidates.

    At school, I wanted to be... a vet

  • Laura Carroll

    As an online advertising consultant, Laura collaborates with our clients and job boards to write and post the perfect ad. Over the years she has been with us (yep she’s been here since the start too), Laura has helped many recruiters fill their positions. Beyond CSL’s four walls, you can find her shopping and socialising.

    At school, I wanted to be... a lifeguard

  • Amy Kelly

    Amy has been with us from the beginning. She works with the account managers at job boards to build strong relationships with them. She’s one of the voices at the end of our phone – researching the most appropriate online media for vacancies and writing adverts to gain maximum exposure to target applicants.

    At school, I wanted to be... a carpenter

  • Alex Tate

    Alex is the youngest member of our team. She joined in October 2011 from an online ad we posted – proof they even work for us! Her role is as an administrator – posting, writing and sifting jobs on a daily basis. She’s a gym-lover who enjoys a spot of photography and indulging in her passion for travelling.

    At school, I wanted to be... an air hostess

  • Luke Carroll

    Luke has been with us since 2013 and he’s a staple part of the furniture. He’s one of the team who maintains relationships with our current clients – so he’s always around with great advice. Luke also helps source new business. Outside of office time he’s a bit of a sports buff – he has a particular affection for the beautiful game.

    At school, I wanted to be... a professional footballer (birmingham city!)

  • Alanna Pawsey

    Alanna is one of our administrators and is really enjoying getting to know our clients inside and out. She is the freshest face in our team having started with us in June 2014. Alanna isn’t a tea drinker – which is unusual for our office. When she’s not working, she loves to spend her time socialising, shopping and playing sports.

    At school, I wanted to be... a police officer

    I can’t recommend Candidate Source’s services enough. They are quick, reliable and well priced. I have used them for several years now and am very happy. They give me lots of good candidates and always find the right people for the company. I am very happy with the service.
