A YouGov poll in December 2017 also unveiled that the seventh most popular new year’s resolution is to ‘get a new job’.*** So if you’re looking to attract top PR talent, January is clearly a peak time to join the ‘resolution revolution’.
Get the biggest bang for your buck
"Our PRWeek job board data indicates that recruiters looking to advertise their jobs should consider January as a prime time to invest as it’s when you’re most likely to get the biggest bang for your buck", enthuses Vicky Quinn, head of recruitment sales at PRWeek Jobs.
Revolutionise your recruitment strategy
"Bearing in mind that advertising in January will make your investment work harder for you, it’s a great time to revolutionise your recruitment strategy and consider your options beyond a standard job listing", adds Joe Edmonds, recruitment sales director, PRWeek Jobs.
So what has PRWeek Jobs got to offer recruiters beyond a standard job listing, to set them apart from their competitors?
