We utilise a range of social channels and engage with a number of key social influencers in sport to ensure a significant reach for your opportunity through modern and ‘real time’ channels. In addition to tapping into our significant digital and social reach within sport, we’ll also run a referral campaign to gain exponential reach, and can, if necessary, advertise through a range of carefully chosen online and print media.
We always aim to map talent and carry out direct approaches as quickly as possible. Typically, the journey from brief to approach takes less than two weeks and includes targeting passive candidates who will improve the quality of your talent pool, thus removing the need for you to manage advertising campaigns.
