We will work with you to understand your recruitment needs and recommend the recruitment activities that will drive the most value to your business.

An Instagram takeover seemed like the perfect opportunity to deliver both careers content as well as giving students the opportunity to have a dialogue with us and provide a friendly face to our brand. The preparation and delivery couldn’t be simpler. The university gathered around 25 questions asked in advance by students so we could plan, sign off and film the majority of our responses. We also received a brilliant report, post-event, giving a breakdown of how our content was received, for us to benchmark future takeover events with. The university did the majority of the heavy lifting work so we could just supply the content. I can’t recommend this format for student engagement enough. This has kick-started a whole new strand of careers engagement for us as a result.
