As an experienced marketing recruitment agency, we have seen a lot of change over the years. Due to the rise in smart phones and tablets, people are now able to look for jobs anywhere at anytime. This could be whilst sitting on a train, waiting for a customer, or eating lunch at their desk. Therefore, it is no longer enough to post a single advert and wait. To find and attract the best talent, working with a proactive digital marketing recruitment agency will ensure you are one step ahead of your competitors.
Research shows people now interact with 15 pieces of content before applying for a job. So, in order to find the right person, you need to be where they are! This is why we advertise across national and niche job boards, conduct regular searches on candidate databases and invest heavily in our online presence, including writing content and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), social and email campaigns.
At BMS Performance, we are highly knowledgeable and experienced in the best practices for finding and recruiting the top marketing talent in the UK and further afield.
Our Six-Step Marketing Recruitment Agency Assessment
If you’re looking to hire a marketing recruitment agency, you want to have the confidence that they’ll help you recruit the right skills, experience and personality for your team. Therefore, over the years, we’ve created a six-step marketing recruitment assessment that we believe will help you find marketers who will improve your campaign performance.
Whether we are looking for someone who has been there and done that, or recruiting for a young, up and coming marketer who is keen to impress, all candidates are assessed as per our six-step recruitment plan.
Perhaps one of the most important factors is identifying a person’s marketing skills. What knowledge do they have of specific channels? What tools and technology have they used? How much marketing planning have they been involved in? How aware are they of new marketing approaches?
If you are hiring a marketer, you want confidence they’ve done it before. What campaign examples can they provide? What specific tactics were they involved in? What tools did they use? What level of responsibility did they have?
With increasing pressure on marketing teams, it’s essential that marketers know what ROI they are delivering. What regular reporting do they provide internally? How well do they know their campaign numbers? What other measures do they look at beyond marketing campaigns?
Part of being a good marketer is being able to sell your ideas, so how you come across is important. How comfortable are they talking about themselves? How well do they articulate their experience? How confident are they being interviewed? How do they cope when under pressure?
Motivation & Attitude
Most marketers love marketing, but what else keeps them motivated? Are they looking to work in a specific market or is it about learning a new skill? Are they looking to develop their career or work with new technologies? Do they want to focus on different channels, or do they want a more cohesive team?
You want someone who will not only fit well into the marketing team but work well with others, including the sales teams. What’s their current team structure like? How do they like to be managed? What regular internal meetings do they have? What examples can they provide of working with sales?
