We have recently been approached by another fantastic local Kent based organisation who are looking to tap into the talent pool of local professionals. Like many new businesses they don’t yet require the expertise on a full time basis and have asked us to help them find an experienced marketing professional, to help them increase their revenue and market share. I think they have been blown away with the response and the talent that has stepped forward. They now have the lucky task of choosing from a fantastic array of experience. This does leave us with some candidates who are left disappointed which is crazy when many of you have this skills gap. How might this work for you? Here is an example of two other organisations we have helped recently and the way they have used this type of resource.
This is a niche garment technology recruitment business that has been established many years. They are well known within their field providing an exclusive service tailored to their clients’ needs and delivered with integrity. We have recruited a part-time administrator with them to manage databases, candidate profiles and other office administration, and have most recently recruited a Social Media Manager to manage their digital profile, including all the social media. This person works in a freelance capacity with excellent digital and general marketing experience. They work on an hourly rate and currently work approximately 10 hours per week from home.
This is a branding business mostly dealing with the motor vehicle industry. They have recently launched a new part to the business, which is hiring of event vehicles. They needed a Marketing Executive to optimise the current CRM system and put together a structured marketing plan for target marketing and also to help launch this new arm to the business. We placed a traditional marketing executive with a corporate media background. This placement was a permanent part time position, working 25 hours per week in the office.
So with a local Kent based community of nearly 3000 candidates wanting to add value to local businesses you really are spoilt for choice.
