Recruitment marketing is for you who dare to win

This is for you who want the sharpest candidates. Who is harder to get. The battle to win is no longer about the services or products you offer your customers. It is the battle of the people who create business success together with you. But you already know this. The question is: with your current methods, do you reach the people you need to recruit to invest in the future?

The insights of recruitment industries meets the methods of the agencies

Everything is changing, so is the way of working. Although the reality is more challenging today, many companies use exactly the same methods for attracting and recruiting as they did several years ago. You might be wondering how many people actually apply through an ad on a traditional job site? And who sees it? We can put it straight: it's time to rethink.

When you collaborate with us in recruitment marketing, you get the best of both worlds. Our Recruitment Marketing Manager Annika Bagge has previously been the CMO at one of Sweden's leading recruitment companies and will be your closest contact person from our side. Her deep knowledge in HR and recruitment is combined with the agency expertise that has made Invise one of Sweden's most awarded agencies in digital marketing. In combination with your knowledge of your brand, specialist needs and employer brand, we have the best possible foundation for a successful recruitment marketing effort.

Engage the right candidates all the way

Attract

Attraction is number one in recruiting. Being the company that the best people want to call their workplace. It's about getting to know your candidates, mapping their needs and matching it with your offer. Based on that, you can, with the right message, the right channels and clear goals start the journey towards attracting more and more relevant candidates.

Engage

Engagement is what takes the interest further. This is built in small steps by making your employer brand visible in everything from website, social media to email communication. With personalized content and a well-designed candidate journey, you’ll create a strong experience that builds bonds between you as an employer and the candidates you are looking for.

Employ

When relevant candidates begin to become future employees, it is time to present a specific role. Here, a smart mix of content is needed to capture the candidates in their different steps. For example, video is effective in advertising, while a well-written job advertisement highlights the value and provides an in-depth picture of both you as an employer and of the current role. In the employment phase, the personal meeting is also important to make the match complete. Once you have signed a contract with the new employee, the next step begins in the form of pre- and onboarding.
