Through attracting high quality candidates from core sectors such as law, finance and technology in the UK, Jago positioned Abacus as an authoritative voice for the recruitment sector in Northern Ireland and nationally.
What was our approach?+
We began by developing a dedicated PR campaign around the Abacus Salary Survey to drive media coverage and broad awareness, referencing the company’s collaborative #BelfastforLife initiative. We strategically announced the results of the survey across the UK media landscape, tailored to regional geographic and industry sectors.
Jago also secured by-lined articles for Abacus Directors successfully positioning the business as a thought-leader and trusted advisor to its clients and candidates.
