s1jobs gives you the horn

This week sees the launch of the latest s1jobs’ brand advertising campaign, ‘s1jobs gives you the horn’.  As Scotland’s most successful recruitment platform, we have a reputation for humorous Scottish adverts and this is set to be no different.

Created with Glasgow Digital Agency, Bright Signals, the ad’s strapline ‘s1jobs gives you the horn’ is set to catch the attention and capture the imagination of our Scottish audience.  The advert depicts a bold, powerful Unicorn encouraging a jobseeker to ‘go on, search what they’re looking for, they will like it’.  The jobseeker is encouraged to be bold, brave and stand out, as Unicorns do, as they search s1jobs.com to discover a better job.

Create your own Talent Pool with s1jobs CV Database

I want to turn the spotlight on Talent Pools and how s1’s CV Database will help you create your very own. If you’re a tad unsure of what creating a talent pool means for your business, allow me to elucidate, for a start don’t confuse the phrase with football, infinity or car.

There’s been an awful lot espoused about talent pools, but unfortunately most offerings are generally just floundering around at the shallow end. I’m a huge fan of talent pools, and when dealt with correctly, it’s a very shrewd way to develop connections with, and get a better understanding of potential candidates. At s1jobs we have a fantastic product to help you attract the best candidates available to take that job with your business.

Update from s1 Sales Director, Gavin Mochan

I’m amazed at how quickly 2015 vanished, it was a very eventful year which saw s1jobs enjoy a stellar period of growth, and the success story continues! I’m delighted to tell you that we have had a fantastic start to the New Year already. In January we saw a record number of 748,371 unique job seekers visit s1jobs, that’s a notable 8% increase on our previous record in January 2013.

Gavin_picNot only that, we are now exceeding over 200,000 applications every month. Its great news for Scottish jobs and job seekers alike to see such volume. We expected the beginning of the New Year to be busy with job seekers as normal, but we’ve been blown away with the high volume of activity. We also continue to receive much more Scottish traffic than any other job board, almost 600,000 visits more than our closest competitor. But the stand out fact for me is, we have more direct employer vacancies in Scotland than any other job board.
