Direct Response Advertising
Media Contacts generates a continual flow of relevant candidates by advertising in national and specialist press. Our presence on a number of platforms generates a wealth of potential candidates and reinforces our existing database. Some of our candidates come from direct response to advertising across our website, social media pages, and on industry-specific job boards. We go thoroughly filter all responses to our adverts, then thoroughly interview the most suitable, to save your time.
Client-paid Advertising Campaigns
Client-paid advertising can be tailored to work for a specific position or a corporate recruitment campaign. Media Contacts is able to design and place an advert, then handle the response, as and when an advertisement campaign is agreed to be the best solution for you. We will make sure all responses get a reply and designate an account manager to be involved in all stages of recruitment.
Direct Response Advertising is supplemented with referrals from placed candidates and satisfied clients, who frequently recommend us as one of the go-to media, events and communications recruiters. An excellent reputation with candidates who trust and appreciate our process means we get a good number of high calibre recommendations.
Sourcing employees with the right skill set can be very time consuming but is extremely important in candidate-short markets. We fully understand this and therefore always provide the most proactive service. When account managing vacancies, our consultants are aware that advertising and marketing are not the only answer. Using their knowledge and long-term experience, each consultant is continuously building an extensive network of contacts – vital to source the best candidates across an industry.
We are well aware that more often than not the best candidates are not actively seeking new opportunities. Therefore we actively headhunt to fill vacancies, identifying the candidates that other methods will not attract.
