Discover how Webrecruit optimise Big Group’s recruitment advertising

The Organisation


Big Group is an award-winning, independent creative marketing agency who apply bigger thinking to everything they do. For over 30 years, they’ve been helping their clients create memorable experiences, drive business results to amplify performance, innovate with technology to drive transformation and nurture and connect brands with consumers to build genuine communities.

The Challenge


We caught up with Stephanie Burridge, People Director at Big Group, to find out how Webrecruit’s advertising services were and are benefitting Big Group’s hiring efforts and objectives.


“I have worked with Webrecruit in previous roles, and always find myself coming back to Webrecruit. I first became aware of Webrecruit after doing some research in alternatives to recruitment agencies, which mostly come in at a significant cost.


It has always been important to me that we have more control over our employer brand in the market, which you can lose a bit when working with recruitment agencies. Working with an advertising partner, instead, means we have more input into how we position ourselves in the market, as well as having access to cost-effective recruitment campaigns and job boards which can help with our hiring efforts.”

The Solution


After trying out some other suppliers, Big Group were confident Webrecruit were the recruitment advertising partners that would work best for their organisation, with cost-effective price point and backed up with recruitment and advertising expertise on how to best position recruitment campaigns.


“Firstly, when you need to recruit, you normally need to get started quickly; Webrecruit’s customer service is absolutely fantastic, and they understand the importance of speed. The team are super-efficient and we never experience any delays in getting our jobs advertised and candidates coming in.


The Copywriting team do a great job of positioning our adverts in a way that reflects our employer brand, attracts our target candidates to our job vacancies and also has improved searchability due to the team’s adoption of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) principles into the adverts to increase their reach.”

The Results


Since working with Webrecruit on their recruitment advertising, Big Group has seen various and wide-reaching benefits to the partnership.


“We have seen excellent return-on-investment in working with Webrecruit, with their cost-effective solutions leading to good candidate throughput meaning we fill many of our roles without the cost of a recruitment agency. I would hazard a guess that working with Webrecruit has saved Big Group a large amount of money.


Webrecruit’s approach is flexible to each role, and we receive recommendations for different job boards and platforms that link back specifically to the role we are looking to advertise. We don’t feel like we are being sold to, we know we are working with experts who want to ensure our roles have the best chance possible of being filled.”

Final Words


“I would definitely recommend Webrecruit. I have researched and engaged with other recruitment advertising partners to check out the competition and I can say, confidently, that they don’t compare to Webrecruit’s service and delivery. Webrecruit combines efficiency and efficacy at a very reasonable price-point which is why they remain my recruitment advertising partner of choice.”
