A video advert is the most effective way to showcase your company and make your vacancy stand out from the competition.

What is YouTube?

YouTube is the most popular video sharing site online, and the 2nd largest search engine in the world after Google. It features over 1 billion hours of content watched daily.


Why post a video advert on You Tube?

Online video is now one of the most significant means of online communication, with sites such as YouTube, Zoom, Facebook Live and TikTok dominating online culture.


Here are five reasons why video can enhance your hiring strategy:

  • According to Forbes people retain 95% of a message when they watch it on video compared to when they read it as text, while videos are shared 1200% more times than links and texts combined.

  • CV Library reports that 43% of candidates are more likely to apply to a job with video content.

  • A white paper by Career Builder states that job postings with video icons are viewed 12% more times than postings without video.

  • Millennials & Gen Z will make up 75% of the workforce in the next few years and according to LinkedIn, this tech-savvy generation lists visualizing a company’s working environment as the number one barrier to job applications – video can solve this issue in an instant!
