As two time winners of the NORA Award for Best Small Recruitment Agency Website, we pride ourselves on our fantastic Online Advertising!

Our knowledge in creating adverts that are optimised for candidate response and appealing to all potential candidates is extensive. Through working with you we can provide you with extensive online advertising campaigns, including a fully optimised feature advert, tailor made to suit your individual candidate needs, two weeks extensive marketing exposure and adverts placed on all our Job Board Partners.

McCarthy Recruitment Website

We think our McCarthy website is pretty unique – after all, it was our vision that created it! Each member of our team has helped to make our site different, imaginative, and most importantly useful for our clients and candidates. Now we’d like you to be a part of it!

By choosing to advertise on our McCarthy website, we will put your brand together with our brand, and create something special for you! We will give you consistent exposure on our website, with tailor made adverts written specifically to help you find the right candidate for your business, and we’ll do all the hard work whilst you sit back and enjoy the benefits!

Our business is a comprehensive database driven site, which can offer you the opportunity to advertise your business through various methods:

Job Postings

Within 24 hours of providing our in-house team with the vacancy information, jobs are live on our website, and can be advertised on any of our three levels of job posting:

Written specifically from a private and confidential perspective, these are a perfect example of advertising the role without disclosing the company it is for. Ideal for roles you may not want to advertise as openly, these are written to match your exact needs.

These adverts offer higher visibility than lineage and can be branded or unbranded. They receive a higher quality of response, appear first on the list and drive an increased traffic to your vacancy.

Branded adverts feature your company logo. This logo can help promote your company, as it can contain a link through to either your corporate brochure, a list of your live vacancies or to your company contact details.

Jobs by E-Mail

We offer a 'Jobs by e-mail Service' from our website and, on a monthly basis, can offer clients the sponsorship of this service.

Branded E-Shot Campaigns

boost-dm.jpgMcCarthy utilise E-Shots to directly market your campaign to candidates identified as having the key criteria you require for your vacancy. They have been used by many of our clients to deliver a highly cost effective marketing tool which can quickly generate a high response to your campaign. The performance of E-Shots can be tracked thoroughly and this data is very useful stored and can be used to design future campaigns.

Micro Site Options

BP M&S Microsite ExampleWhen we are delivering a volume advertising campaign and we need to post a large number of vacancies on our site, we propose that building a small micro-site dedicated to your brand is the best option. The benefits to this approach are vast; from delivering a fantastic platform to deliver your employee brand to a number of potential applicants, to creating a far more versatile and exciting recruitment brochure that may attract additional responses to your campaign.

Combined with direct marketing and advertising, we can drive traffic to your micro-site, which is then tracked so that your application source can be analysed in detail and the effectiveness of your site measured. Our in-house team can create a micro-site quickly and in line for your internal branding.

Print Advertising

Blind or branded, we will create you an advertised solution which will make your business stand out from your competitors and reflect your brand values and individual candidate offer. We have various media partners across different sectors, and we will provide advice and success rates from various media, along with information on copy deadlines, production and management information. Through our purchasing power, we are also able to negotiate very competitive rates and can often pass on these discounts to our clients. Publications we use range from The Appointment, Retail Week to local advertising.

Campaign Approach

hotter-campaign.pngAt McCarthy Recruitment, we get to know you as a business and help you to find the best advertising tools to recruit your perfect staff! We not only help you with writing and posting your adverts, but we are also here to head up whole advertising campaigns for you where you need it.

A fantastic example of our advertising campaigns is the recent success we have had with our client Hotter Shoes. Through our branded advertising, tailor made posters and dedicated team, we have so far filled 20 brand new Hotter Shoes stores with their entire teams from Manager to Customer Advisors, and have another 20 stores planned in 2013.  Our advertising and exposure for the Hotter brand has been extensive, not to mention that we make our calls on what we like to refer to as our “Hotter Hotline” phone, complete with it’s own number to help with candidate efficiency!
