Use of University LinkedIn Account
Departments wanting to optimise recruitment, particularly for hard to fill roles, can use the University LinkedIn account. To request an advert, please complete the LinkedIn job posting form available online at Templates and submit it to the Adverts Team at email@example.com. A two-week job advert is available at a cost of £100. Please note that the number of advert spaces available is limited.
To recruit effectively, make sure your job will be found by candidates by using key words in the title and opening sentences of the advert to optimise searches. E-Recruitment Specialist Richard Bunkham (firstname.lastname@example.org) can provide the following recruitment services to University departments:
- Review and edit adverts for search engine optimisation and promote the job via Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook as appropriate: £120 +VAT
- indeed.co.uk pay for clicks: £75 + VAT (an effective way to increase viewings of the role)
- Full LinkedIn bespoke search: £1,500 + VAT (an effective way to reach out to potential candidates with personalised emails)
University Media Agency: TMP
Departments may wish to consider additional external advertising sources. For media advertising, eg specialist websites or magazines, the TMP advertising agency (with whom the University has a discount) should be used. TMP can advise departments on appropriate media for different roles and will provide circulation figures and cost estimates. You are advised to confirm any additional costs for this service with TMP on a case-by-case basis. Departments will be invoiced on a monthly basis via email or by post, according to individual preference. The full guidance is available in a PDF pack below:
TMP can also produce management information reflecting the feedback from each media used showing which was more effective in targeting the required audience. This may help inform future decision-making about which media to use for specific posts.
