Media Buying

You need to promote your recruitment brand, you need to attract candidates, so it follows, you need to use job boards. But which job board should you use?  “Which job board will attract the candidates I need?”, “Am I paying a fair price?”, “How will I know if I’m getting value for money?”.

We understand your dilemma because we have been there

Every year we have to decide which job boards to recommend to our clients so we have to know who’s spending on marketing their job board, where they are spending it and who they are attracting.  We understand what products will attract candidates, which products will drive traffic to your vacancy and which will promote your company brand. And with our years of experience working with online job boards, we’ve established strong relationships with all of the key mainstream and niche websites. AND we know what’s a fair price to pay.

For companies with multiple branches we can structure your buying to combine access to relevant job boards with tangible savings, offering branches pricing as a group for online advertising that they would not be able to secure on an individual branch basis.

Advertising is one of a recruitment agency’s largest spends – don’t leave it to chance, let the experts help.
