Marketing within the Recruitment Sector

An unbelievable 9,000 new recruitment agencies opened their doors in 2017 – a quite remarkable figure, given the recent political and economic landscape.  Competition is high, putting even more pressure on marketers to ensure their organisation stands out from the crowd, whilst continuing to deliver tangible ROI.  If you are a recruitment marketing professional you need to be more creative, work smarter and challenge convention.

What You Get Out Of The Event

In this ultimate learning & development day, delegates will hear from some of the industry’s most noteworthy figures, witness unique case-study presentations, learn valuable and implementable hints and tricks and benefit from our brilliantly intimate roundtable discussions.  You’ll never have experienced engagement like this before.  Plus we’re at the iconic Tropicana Beach Club, where fun is sure to be had along the way…

Register for this event if you’re a dynamic, progressive recruitment marketing professional or a sales director/business owner within the recruitment sector who is keen to understand how marketing can help produce more placements and increase profit levels.
