In conversation with Kim Bradford

***PODCAST*** We spoke to Kim Bradford  (GDPR extraordinaire) to learn more about how the regulations are impacting recruitment marketers, bust some myths and give us all a much needed refresh.  A great listen for any marketer who has to do GDPR (that's all of us btw!!!) Unlike many GDPR podcasts, this is no turgid affair - Kim is engaging, accessible and an all round good 'un.  It's about how GDPR can help marketing NOT how it can prevent marketing. A longer blog than normal, but well worth it! ...

An Interview with Recruitment Marketer

...... Daniel Evans Current Position: Head of Marketing Company: Roc Search Years in recruitment marketing: 13 Briefly describe your recruitment marketing career to date? I started at Hays in 2006. I learnt loads (how to use apostrophes was high on that list!), did my CIM qualification and experienced how marketing had to adapt when the recession hit. After 6 years I moved on to GCS Recruitment to establish their marketing function. Pretty much a dream job at the time because I had such freedom compared to the corporate environment. If Hays taught me marketing, GCS taught me recruitment. A superb ...

The art of the one-man team

Surely a 'team' can't be only one person? Can you call one person a 'function'? Does any of this even matter?? I found myself questioning this on my morning commute earlier this week. Now normally my commute (30-40 minutes door-to-door) is spent catching up on TV boxsets rather than profound thinking. I realise that people reading this style of post will most likely be seeking intuitive answers and cutting-edge thinking. I'm the wrong 'author', 'contributor', whatever, for that sort of enlightenment. What I am is a marketer who occasionally over-analyses menial things when he has time on his hands. Or ...

Why Marketers shouldn’t pass the blame

It’s common place in marketing. The marketing manager/head of marketing/marketing director moves on, is replaced, and then that new employee systematically criticises and undermines what their predecessor did. They explain the mess that has been left and how long (and the skill required) to fix it. They change all of the agencies and suppliers. After all everyone was rubbish; complete idiots. They are the knight in shining armour, the guardian angel, riding in on a unicorn pulled carriage with Handel’s Messiah performed in perfect unison as the soundtrack. As “hallelujah” sings out the new marketer continually, and at every turn, ...
