WHY USE US?
We invest in candidate engagement – digital, social, web and partnerships – to reach millions of young people across the UK.
GetMyFirstJob attracts more candidate applications than any other
Getting a great presence on the web is all about content, functionality and SEO (search engine optimisation). GetMyFirstJob.co.uk – with thousands of job vacancies and hundreds of advice articles – receives more job applications and has the longest site-visit time in the industry, our in-house marketing and web teams work every day to rank the site in the top 5 for key Google search terms.
Communicate with 90% of UK Schools & Colleges
With a database of over 12,000 careers advisors and decision makers in schools and colleges, we provide resources and information about apprenticeships and traineeships across the UK. We send posters and materials to over 3,000 schools every quarter, and helped to arrange over 600 school visits.
Multi-channel social engagement
Lots of people will tell you how many followers they have – we focus on engagement. As a social enterprise, we are committed to building a community around our brand – connecting with the right people with the right message at the right time. As a result, our reach is significantly better than any other apprenticeship recruitment site.
We work in partnership with large brands, youth organisations, charities, social enterprises and government to communicate and engage with young people. This means our brand is seen by over 1 million young people through our partnerships every year, and our campaigns have much greater reach than that of our competitors.
Paid digital campaigns
Our dedicated digital marketing team can also build custom campaigns across social and google adwords to attract new candidates for vacancies, optimised by demographics and location. We can’t always guarantee the perfect candidate lives around the corner from every vacancy, but are experts at using every tool we can to find them!
A network of local stakeholders
It’s not just national organisations; in every region, there is a network of hundreds of advisors working in schools, youth centres, training organisations and job centres. Our resources, jobs feeds and data insight give them the tools to help more young people, faster.
Emails and texts directly to candidates
To help keep candidates in touch with our customers’ opportunities and to help them find the right guidance, we send over 4 million emails and SMS messages every year.
