Win for Jobsgopublic and Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue at 2018 PPMAs


Jobsgopublic, the first online job board dedicated to the public and not-for-profit sectors, picked up the Best Value for Money Recruitment Campaign award this year’s PPMA Annual Conference and Awards.

Held at the Jurys Inn Hotel, Newcastle-Gateshead, the PPMAs recognise achievement in recruitment, people management and HR, and provide a forum for public sector professionals to share ideas, expertise and experience.

Having picked up awards at the PPMAs for the last 5 years in a row, this year saw Jobsgopublic pick up the Best Value for Money Recruitment Campaign award for their work with Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue.

Jobsgopublic were thrilled to work with Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue on this campaign, helping to ensure that they were best positioned to attract and recruit the next generation of firefighters.

Buckinghamshire had an exciting offer, paving the way for young people to pursue a career in fire and rescue. The apprenticeship scheme would allow candidates with no previous firefighting experience to learn on the job, earn a proper wage and gain two qualifications (NVQ and BTEC).

They just faced a couple of key challenges – a tight budget and an even tighter timeframe. Jobsgopublic jumped at the chance to partner with Bucks Fire and Rescue to help them overcome these challenges. Jobsgopublic built a campaign microsite to give them a platform to promote their offer and carried out a highly targeted attraction campaign – ensuring they could reach the right candidates at minimal cost.

The campaign was a resounding success and Jobsgopublic are ecstatic that the dedicated people at Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue have been recognised by PPMA.
