ULHT hired Just R to create a bespoke campaign to target passive job-seekers interested in nursing and ODP roles within the Surgery and Theatres department – a campaign that we delivered during the lockdown period.

Just R utilised the Trust’s current branding to develop a strong, recruitment-focused campaign identity for the department. We created and refreshed the Surgery and Theatres department Facebook pages and integrated bespoke online enquiry landing pages.

Strategy and Tactics

A day-long photoshoot was held in early March at the Trust’s site, while our content team collaborated with the staff to discuss the unique selling points of the role, department and Trust. This allowed us to create tailored, engaging social media posts.

Our team contacted all candidates expressing interest through the online landing pages within 48 hours of submitting the form. We carried out additional screening tests and guided them through the application process in order to convert the maximum number of candidates.
