Marketing Opportunities

If you would like to be more proactive in terms of your marketing, we offer a number of possibilities, as follows:

The Bronze Package. This is the entry level that gives you a formal relationship with us and gives you access to our database of students. It ensures that your job listings are accurate and up to date and all links to your website connect correctly. In addition, it provides you with an identity and profile on the site. It basically starts to differentiate your from from others in your sector. The package includes:

  • Updated Scheme links: we check the links regularly, but with over 2500 opportunities on the site, they can easily get out of date or broken. If you change your web site or schemes, this allows you to update an account manager with the details immediately, ensuring they are always intact.

  • Corporate Profile: we will host your 1 page corporate profile on the website which is dedicated to your company, including links to your site

The Platinum Package. Over time, we have seen that the higher-ranking employers in a list receive more click-throughs to their site than those lower down the list. We therefore charge for the top 3 or 4 positions, as they tend to receive significantly more click-throughs than others and therefore are of greater value. The Package, includes:

  • All aspects of the bronze, silver and gold packages plus
  • Top Ranking position in sector- One of the top 3 or 4 positions on the site in your sector across all the year groups
