Working with a consortium of education leaders, our brief was to develop a full employer branding campaign to support teacher recruitment across Bradford. Our response was to create “Bradford for Teaching”.
Employer & recruitment branding, Strategy development, Film and animation, Digital marketing, Stakeholder engagement, Graphic design and print, Exhibition design, E-newsletters, Campaign management
We estimate that campaign messages were presented to online audiences over 2 million times over an 18 month period.
We recruited more than 20 teaching ambassadors as the faces of the campaign, bringing Bradford’s message to life with imaginative use of video and animation in particular.
Pre-pandemic, live conferences and events were also a significant part of the campaign. Subsequently, we quickly developed engaging virtual events making use of webinar technology.
Evaluation of the campaign showed that the number of vacant teaching posts in Bradford fell for two years in a row following the launch of Bradford for Teaching, and surveys of local schools revealed they were receiving more applications for each teaching post advertised.
