We source our candidates in a number of ways, utilising several forms of media to attract a diverse range of jobseekers. We also ensure that we reach passive candidates through our partnerships with key media both online and offline. This, combined with our existing database of candidates, means we can ensure you find the perfect match for your company.
We have developed our website internally to ensure that candidates can access vacancies, make applications, alter their details and update their CV online 24 hours a day.
This gives the individual control over their own recruitment process, encouraging candidates to register with us. As soon as their details are uploaded onto the site, they are immediately accessible to all our consultants through our internal systems - eMploy.
Due to our extensive marketing reach we can offer substantial discounts for advertising campaigns across all forms of media, such as jobboards and trade or regional press.
We raise our clients’ employer profiles by targeting passive job seekers using branded emails. These are sent to relevant candidates within our database, and the interest that they generate amongst job seekers increases the quality and choice of the candidates available to you.
We attend and exhibit at a number of events throughout the year with the key aim of attracting candidates.
Our Graduate Team also attend exhibitions and careers fairs at a number of universities, using attraction methods relevant to graduates - such as giving presentations on how to compose CVs and how to search for jobs effectively; putting up posters around campus locations; and advertising on graduate job boards.
We sponsor keywords with the most prominent search engines, including Google, and we employ an SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) specialist to continually maintain our rankings. This means that Barclay Meade often appears first when a prospective job seeker searches for a new role.
This area of development compliments our already established Google Adwords. By using a professional service to concentrate on our links and keywords we have increased our ranking in the most common search engines: Google, Yahoo and Bing, which account for 90% of all searches on the internet.
This internet marketing increases the number of relevant visitors to our site and ultimately attracts additional new candidates to use barclaymeade.com.
Utilising the latest ICT Technology, our Consultants can instantly send out SMS text alerts to relevant candidates allowing them to market opportunities.
This is especially useful for urgent temporary requirements requiring a fast turnaround. Candidates have the ability to control SMS alerts via their web account.
Our subscription to specialist and mainstream job boards enables us to have unlimited access to online databases. In addition, our daily 'Watchdogs' are set up, which alert us when relevant candidates register their details online.

Assessments, tests and profiling are used to measure three basic aspects of people:
Attainment: what people know, for instance maths, accountancy practice or how to use a computer program
Ability: a person’s capacity to work in different areas, such as words, diagrams and systems. For example, a copywriter needs to work well with words, an accountant with numbers and a production manager with systems.
Personality: how people typically like to behave. Personality includes what motivates an individual, whether they follow the rule book and what role they take up in teams.
Current working and registered temporary workers are an invaluable source of market intelligence, particularly as they often belong to societies or consortiums and provide us with access to a large network of potential candidates.
In addition to this, we work hard to build and maintain strong relationships and gain loyalty from our clients, who are often pleased to recommend potential candidates to us.
Our extensive experience in creating and maintaining brand awareness on behalf of clients is achieved through varied advertising techniques. Our in-house Marketing Department are experts in designing attractive, branded and informative advertisements for both the press and internet media, and will promote the client brand in all advertisements that are produced.
In addition, we advertise regularly in high profile specialist and trade publications, and our strong brand consistently attracts candidates of a high quality.
As the vast majority of CVs acquired through job boards are readily available via other sources, these sites are used either when we expect a candidate shortage for a particular client and to further raise employer branding.
