Why You Should Advertise On Reed

Reed took the brave step to stop posting their jobs to Indeed (over 12 months ago) and since then has been using it’s marketing budget to attract candidates from alternative sources.

Flat Fee Recruiter is now working in partnership with Reed, to offer customers an alternative reach for candidates.

So, why should you upgrade and advertise on Reed?

According to Reed, these are their main Unique Selling Points:

  1. Britain’s best-known job site
  2. 37% unique audience
  3. Jobseekers are 3-7 times more likely to use Reed
  4. In February alone, they generated 33million more market share of visits, than the leading job boards
  5. They have had 74million unique users in the last 12 months
  6. Their candidate marketing strategy is targeted from TV, Radio, Rail, Underground, YouTube, Social Media and PPC

What Flat Fee Recruiter thinks…

Since forming our partnership with Reed, many of our customers have successfully hired through the site and the results are very promising. 

What has impressed us most is the Account Management service and their commitment to making our customers’ vacancies work:

  1. We have an online calculator to give real-time statistics on the number of candidates for every job type in every location – This really helps when deciding if it’s worth an advert!
  2. Reed adverts are for 6 weeks (not just the usual 4)
  3. If you don’t get any candidates, we can get you access to their CV database as an extra guarantee

So, if you do want to trial the Reed advertising option, then please speak to Paula on 0113 322 7243 and she can talk your options through next time you run a campaign.





RIP Recruitment Agencies

RIP Recruitment Agencies

Now don’t get me wrong, there is always a place for a decent recruiter and I don’t wish every recruitment agency RIP – honestly.  But that’s the point; you have to be a decent recruiter in this day and age to survive!  Why should a Hiring Manager pay thousands of pounds for a basic service that, with a little creativity, could be managed with significantly less cost and hassle in-house?

Hiring Managers and in-house Recruiters are now wise to what they need.  They understand about recruitment strategies, they know how an ATS can improve their processes and they are keen to improve their employer brand to generate quality talent pools of referrals. The market is truly open to recruitment suppliers who can build partnerships with organisations to actually fill their jobs in the most efficient way – adding value to in-house processes rather than trying to replace or work around them.
