What should the advertisement say?

 

You can either write the ad yourself or ask CMS to write it for you (small additional charge). Bear in mind that online needs a different copy approach to the way a press ad is written.

 

How should the ad look?

 

Online ads also offer the facility to add banners, buttons, skyscrapers and job of the week status. Lost you? They’re just additional techniques at additional cost which enable an online ad to stand out more. CMS will advise you.

 

If it’s a print ad, then CMS will include your logo, your branding, your corporate style (at no extra cost) so you have a distinctive ad which reflects well on the professionalism of your organisation and the care you put into staff selection.

How much notice do you need to give CMS?

CMS work fast. You can normally expect a reply back with an hour or two and most projects are sorted within six working hours. The deadline for press ads is usually a couple of days, online is often less.

 

All media

 

It’s as well to emphasise that this service works in all media including local and free newspapers, regional and national press, specialist titles such as Nursing Times and all others, online sites which are local, national or international which appeal widely or to specific job title areas.

 

What about social networking sites?

 

They have their use and CMS has used them to recruit to specialist positions as part of recruitment campaign. CMS can also build you a social networking platform in Linked In or Facebook to act as a candidate attraction platform, or a YouTube site containing a short video on your charity and what it’s like to work for it.

 

Open days, careers road shows, application packs, staff literature.

 

It’s not just recruitment ads but the whole area of staff attraction and retention. So if your application pack needs a revamp, a graduate guide needs doing, a volunteer’s handbook or a staff magazine, CMS will do you an outstanding piece of HR marketing at a realistic price.
