The 2011 OnRec Awards

It is Executives Online's search marketing programme in particular which was nominated and won. The nomination reads:

“Executives Online’s use of search marketing for candidate and client acquisition distinguishes it among its competitors and extends its online recruitment beyond most agencies’ typical use of job boards and social media to find candidates. Thousands of diverse ‘long tail’ words and phrases – the vast majority overlooked by competitors – deliver traffic via paid and organic search, resulting in dozens of client briefings and thousands of online registrations monthly. Its global talent bank numbers more than 100,000 executive candidates, far exceeding other interim management providers and executive recruitment firms of its size. The site and search marketing have been successfully replicated in seven international territories.”

The majority of job searches start at a search engine, according to data from Enhance Media. And so, a powerful, creative search marketing campaign must be at the core of any effective online candidate acquisition strategy. Via Executives Online's comprehensive search programmes (paid and organic), tens of thousands of managers and executives visit our nine websites every month. Thousands of executive candidates register online every month to join our global talent bank, returning frequently to update their profiles.
