It’s been a week like no other for the nation. News has come thick and fast on the spread of coronavirus and the measures the government is taking to control the situation. While things have gone quiet for some, for a number of our clients the opposite is true. One thing’s for sure – we’re all in this together.
A leading delivery provider has seen a surge in demand for its services, and within days we’ve set up and are now running a fast-track recruitment campaign to help them hire the drivers they need to meet demand.
Using a combination of paid search ads, display and job boards, our campaign has delivered over 1,000 applications in only 7 days, helping them to keep delivering much needed supplies to homes across the country.
One of our clients is a big-name supermarket that’s on the front line supplying household essentials. Their application volumes have soared over the last week, so much so that their applicant tracking system was overwhelmed from a technical standpoint.
As their employer branding and comms partner, we were on hand to quickly prepare and upload a message to their careers site to manage the situation. Thanks to swift decisive action, our client’s candidate pool has been kept informed, helping the business to manage expectations.
At Creed, we’re incredibly fortunate to operate on a business as usual basis, with all of our team currently working from home. We know that all businesses across the country are facing the unknown, with some moving to home working, others ramping up activity and some facing a temporary shutdown.
Whether you need to launch a superfast recruitment campaign, quickly pull together some people comms for your internal and external audiences, or put plans in place for the future, we’re on hand to help however we can, to keep businesses moving.
Get in touch today to speak to our team, and we’ll do all we can to help.
