Jobsite ads feature in Take That tour

Ads for Jobsite are featuring at stadia across the UK as part of Take That's sell-out tour.  The ads are being shown four times before the band takes the stage at each venue.  The tour, which started in the North East on June 5th, is due to end at Wembley Stadium on July 5th, with two dates at Sunderland and Cardiff, three in Coventry and Glasgow, four in London and five in Manchester.  Audiences are expected to average 50,000 throughout.  Chief executive Keith Potts is claiming another first for the business: "Last year we advertised on TV for the first time, which proved overwhelmingly successful for us," he says, "and now we're taking our brand campaign into other new territories as part of our continued commitment to raising brand awareness and becoming the most well-known job-board in the UK.  As the market becomes ever more fragmented, taking our adverts on tour with one of the UK's most popular bands allows us to reach a broad remit of consumers, both candidates and clients.  This demonstrates our continued innovative approach to candidate attraction."

International job-board is offering free job posts and advertising to employers and recruitment agencies till the 31st December.  The board went live in April and has apparently enjoyed a steady increase in traffic, but this is now expected to increase dramatically in the very near future thanks to an aggressive SEO campaign and other initiatives.  For more details, go to
