Finding the right person for your organisation is essential, but it can be difficult to find those candidates that tick all the boxes on your job description and person specification. It can pay to sometimes try more creative ways of finding those candidates, especially passive candidates who are not actively looking for a new role.
This month we look at 8 types of creative recruitment adverts, using examples from the web that caught our eye (although not always for the right reasons!)
1. Before even applying these organisations tested their skills.
2. These certainly weren’t proof read!
3. These are enough to make you feel claustrophobic
4. Being honest about pay and responsibilities
5. Adverts for the end of the day or week
6. We have no clue, any guesses?
7. A little scary
8. Finally ones to make you laugh
