scratch & save campaign

Doing what we can for local business

With the ever-present shadow of Brexit still looming, we have launched our autumn campaign to help local and regional businesses grow their workforce, despite the uncertain environment we live in, writes Kylee Russon, head of Star Employment Services.

Over the last three years we have seen many companies opting to delay recruitment of new staff. Recruitment agencies like ours, which enjoy strong relationships with local and regional employers, are still being asked to source new recruits, but the terms of contracts and salaries are in a state of flux.

We have decided to do what we can to support those businesses in our area who want to grow, but aren’t sure how much they can invest on finding the right person.

Our innovative marketing campaign includes a series of scratch cards that are available by registering on our website. Recipients will be sent a card – all of which contain a prize saving money on a recruitment package. They are valued at anywhere between £50 and £475, the higher being the amount of a Star fixed price package which includes the role appearing on national jobs boards such as Indeed, CV Library, and Total Jobs, as well as the Star’s own online jobs platform.

The job ad will also feature in the newspaper, and clients will be given a dedicated resourcer for their campaign.

There’s such massive uncertainty around Brexit and we’ve recognised the fact that not everybody wants to spend £3,000 on a recruitment campaign.

So we’re doing something positive to help local businesses and local people do what they need to do to prosper.
