Media Optimisation

We identify and map your audiences, plan appropriate and effective media and social channels and utilise the latest tech to enhance and report performance to maximise your ROI.

We are proud to have supported our clients on a range of award-winning attraction campaigns. We help our clients to attract the right talent for themselves using cost-effective channels that span every sector.

By following our core principles of audience, message and channel, we are able to overcome our clients’ individual challenges. Once we understand the target audience, we can advise on channel to ensure the correct message is deployed at the right time and frequency.

How we do it

There are a number of key elements involved in media optimisation, from strategic thinking through to tactical delivery:

  • Strategy
  • Buying
  • Measurement
  • Optimisation
  • Reporting


From one-off roles you need some advice on, through to a 12-month fully researched and cost-negotiated multi-platform media schedule, we are here to help. We’ve advertised almost every type of vacancy across almost every sector. We’d always recommend a more thorough approach to planning your media strategy, which allows us to research the best routes to market and provide accurate, competitive pricing.


Longstanding relationships with most media suppliers and a broad understanding of fair pricing per channel/inventory means we can always provide a highly competitive price in a timely manner. We also specialise in supporting the planning and buying of long-term media contracts. Typically, there are huge benefits from a cost and added value perspective of buying media over a longer period of time. These proposals are always bespoke and never include resold media.


We use sophisticated tagging and tracking software to accurately monitor the performance of the campaigns/media we book. By hosting and serving creative inventory such as programmatic ads, HTML emails and so on, we know categorically how many times they’ve been seen and clicked on. Working closely with client ATS providers, we place code at various stages of the application process but primarily at the ‘Thank you for applying’ page. This tells us exactly how many candidates have applied via not just which channel, but also which piece of specific inventory or creative within that platform.


Once we’ve deployed any advertising, we ensure this media activity is continually optimised. By keeping in close contact with our media partners and by referring to our real-time performance dashboards, we are continually optimising. This means that no activity is left to run without scrutiny and every pound you spend works as hard as it possibly can.


Our fully transparent portal shows you just how hard your expenditure is working. This custom dashboard provides in-depth information on all your online media channels in a single user-friendly place - showcasing media performance in real time and website traffic. The application and conversion data show which combination of propositions/messages and channels are working right now. Our clients have access to this portal 24/7 so you’ll always know we’re chasing success and spending your money as if it were our own.
