Marketing for the recruitment industry


GKS Associates have been working in recruitment marketing for over 15 years.  We have been at the forefront of the changes in recruitment and marketing during that time.  Above all we love everything about recruitment!

Marketing within the recruitment industry is like no other – it needs a unique blend of B2B, B2C and professional services.  As a full services marketing agency we acknowledge that the key within recruitment is the return on investment.  If your marketing is not adding value then it is failing.

Our clients use us for many reasons:

  • Enhance existing internal marketing departments
  • Work alongside business owners to add a marketing department
  • Position the brand for sell and exit
  • New sector or territory expansion

We have experts in:

  • Marketing strategy and planning
  • Web design and social media
  • Design
  • Direct marketing
  • Investor relations and corporate affairs
  • PR and events

We offer a range of flexible payment options so you can finance your marketing projects without impacting on cashflow.
