Basically, they needed a marketing plan for a recruitment agency that would boost candidate acquisition - and they needed it fast.

Posted by Abby Pearson on 3/8/19 4:11 PM

It seems like everyone and their mum is on Facebook these days, constantly scrolling through endless status updates and videos of dogs doing daft things. Everywhere you go, you see people staring at their phone screens – on trains, tubes, buses, and even as they walk down the street.
