Having worked in recruitment over the past 15 years, we’ve recognised that the needs of the industry have changed.


  • Whereas once it was job openings that proved scarce, 2015 is set to pose an entirely different problem for both agencies and in-house recruiters.
  • With competition for the best talent more intense than ever, Ecom Digital is offering a service which will help recruiters to attract and engage with talented, difficult-to-reach candidates.

Key Features

Candidate experience

When applying for a job, 48% of candidates have a ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’ hiring experience. Meanwhile, 83% then go on to tell friends and family, with some taking to social media to vent their frustrations. Is your brand reputation at risk? We’ll ensure your candidates are taken care of.

Positive interaction

In 2014, only 28% of recruiters believed that their company database was being used to effectively communicate with talent pools. Consistent interaction with candidates is essential in creating a trusted brand identity. We can help.

Data protection compliance

Data protection is under the spotlight and in 2015 legislation is likely to change significantly. It’s essential that you are aware of your legal obligations. Our expert will spend a day with you, offering a legal health check and advise you on a variety of non-compliance data risks. We know how to keep your business safe.

Consistent communication

In 2014, 61% of recruiters said they struggle to engage with candidates online. We open new communication channels to ensure your talent pool is ever-expanding. Without regular, quality communication (even with candidates you don’t have an immediate need for) your agency will not thrive to its full potential.

Brand building

With skills shortages becoming more and more severe, it has never been more important to stand out from the crowd. Our dedicated team of designers and content specialists work hand in hand you to build an identifiable, trusted brand that every candidate will respect.

Measured advertising spend

Over time, we have built great relationships with an array of major job boards and provide marketing consultancy services to some of the market leaders. This enables us to offer unrivaled value to our clients when it comes to advertising jobs and communicating them to a wider audience. We guarantee to reduce your spend and increase applications. A guarantee we have not yet needed to honour.

The Tools You Need to Combat Skills Shortages…

  • Our candidate attraction and engagement solutions have been designed to combat the skills shortage the UK is currently facing
  • Our experience in the industry allows us to improve the perception of your brand. We spend time getting to know your talent pool, their likes and dislikes, before building a comprehensive engagement campaign which will breed interest in your brand.
  • With the gap between the demand and supply of workers becoming increasingly wide, competition is set to get more intense than ever. Attracting great candidates needs to be a top priority for recruiters – forging relationships with skilled workers has never been more important.

Avoid Losing Candidates to Your Competitors!

  • Once you’ve attracted the candidates, engaging with them is a critical. How many of your consultants disregard unsuitable candidates?
  • No call backs, no emails, no interaction; no positive experience. Building a great talent pool takes work – we can relieve you of the burden by ensuring each of your candidates receives consistent communication and positive interaction.
  • There’s no need for you to spend hours on LinkedIn or Twitter. You don’t have to worry about cleaning and segmenting your databases. You won’t have to train up a member of staff to send mailer campaigns. We’ll do the leg-work and position your business as a leader in your space so that you can focus on what you’re good at.
