New client! New love for indies! We won a competitive pitch to help launch Werks in Leeds, managing their social, PR and marketing.

Leeds’ independent hospitality sector has long struggled with the recruitment process; job advertisements in the trade press are prohibitively expensive, whilst flooding your brand’s social accounts with job search posts is alienating for customers. Similarly, the best staff don’t know where to look for potential openings. Enter new firm, Werks.

We’ll be responsible for raising the profile of Werks in Leeds and targeting local, tech and national media. We will drive sign-up and raise awareness of this new brand and encourage more people to use the recruitment app.

Businesses and candidates can post, or search, for permanent jobs. The instant chat function, alongside the technology’s “Werks Suitability Score”, means that users can connect with their dream employers, and likewise, businesses can search out and chat with their dream talent.

The user’s profile acts as their CV whilst business profiles showcase their business. Compatibility scores rest on a range of markers, including location, interests, goals and availability.

Werks will launch in March (so keep an eye out for all the work we have been planning).

Why Leeds? Leeds has one of the most exciting hospitality scenes, with unrivaled growth year-on-year. The city is forward-thinking; the tech and digital industries are exciting, and somewhat interlinked with the hospitality industry. It's also our city that we know and love. We have great people to collaborate with, in a market we know, and it was therefore a good place to start!
