Recruitment via Mobile - The UK's biggest ever survey of mobile recruitment activity and attitudes
In 2011 Everything Everywhere launched ‘Shots’, a permission based messaging service that enables organisations to engage and interact directly with Orange and T-mobile users. Currently 3.5 million users have opted in to be a part of the Shots audience in the UK. Educate have been exclusively appointed to represent Everything Everywhere and the ‘Shots’ product in both the education and recruitment sectors. ‘Shots’ is now firmly established as a favourite channel for universities who are looking to recruit students.
In order to find out more about the amount of commercial recruitment activity that people are engaging in on their mobile phone Educate initiated a survey of Orange and T-Mobile users using the ‘Shots’ service. The survey took place between the 5th and 8th April 2012 and this document details the results of what is the biggest survey of mobile recruitment activity ever seen in the UK.
