Revolutionising Recruitment and a ‘hat- trick’! - The Job Show ™goes from strength to strength!02 Nov 2016
The Job Show™ - the nationally acclaimed face-to-face recruitment and careers event continue their success by landing a ‘hat trick’ in the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards as finalists three years in a row AND make TV History with the launch of the Job Show TV™, a one hour recruitment and careers programme on a Shopping Channel – making it now possible to ‘shop for a job’ in the comfort of your own home!
Stewart Craig General Commercial Manager for Ideal World Shopping Channel commented:
‘’Congratulations to Caroline, Victoria, and the team at The Job Show™, but to be honest we were not surprised, as when we were approached by The Job Show™ to support and promote their amazing Recruitment Events, we knew that this was something very special.
Ideal World is a TV Shopping Channel that reaches into 26million homes in the UK, and this Partnership is a First, bringing 57 minutes of Live TV which can literally change people’s lives.
The ability to describe Careers and the Recruiting Companies in such depth enables viewers to make informed decisions on their next career move and, most importantly, register for their local event, where they can meet, “Face to Face” their next employer. We are proud to be associated with The Job Show TV™ and to be a part of their success.’’
Co-founders Caroline Connaughton and Victoria Clarke say their key to their success is their long term unique partnership, creative thinking, marketing, PR and innovative module. - An avid online shopper herself MD Caroline not only is the brainchild behind The Job Show TV™ but is also ‘The Presenter’ and often gets recognised at the recruitment events inspiring more and more people to attend the shows and find the career they are looking for.
The decision to use iconic destination venues for their events such as ‘premiership football clubs’ like Arsenal FC, Chelsea FC, Manchester United, Liverpool FC, Leicester FC coupled with the marketing and PR continue to attract some of the world’s leading organisations who recruit very successful candidates through use of both The Job Show TV™ and The Job Show™ events.
Launched in February 2013 sparked by the doom and gloom of the economic climate and personal family redundancies the directors decided to embark on their remarkable journey….with no financial backing and with just a team of four including two apprentices they trained and developed themselves, The Job Show™ directors in such a short space of time have produced 37 recruitment events, 5 TV programmes, attracting over 250 National companies, over 35,000 registrations and people through the door in areas such as North, South, East and West London, Peterborough, Leicester, Coventry, Cheltenham, Birmingham, Leeds, Kent, Manchester and Liverpool.
Caroline Connaughton MD/Co-founder and Victoria Clarke Director/Co-founder jointly said:
We feel privileged and proud to be chosen as finalists three years in a row in the prestigious Lloyds Bank National Business Awards - in particular for The Lloyds Bank Positive Social Impact Award which highlights a range of social impact initiatives that can bring to life a community and make a difference. To be aligned with so many worthy finalists and awarding us again this recognition will no doubt give us even more determination to go from strength-to-strength, and produce even more rewarding and successful recruitment events backed by many more TV shows to improve recruitment opportunities in the UK and Worldwide’’.
So what does 2017 and the future hold for The Job Show™ team? Having created an innovative module that can be replicated all over the country and worldwide, could the next step be ‘The Job Show™ New York’ at Madison Square Gardens ? …..with plans and structures already in place we will just have to wait and see!
