Edge Recruitment

Challenge

The big challenge of the campaign was to raise awareness of EDGE Apprenticeships in order to drive viewers to the website and increase the number of placements.

Insight

TV was the ideal media solution. EDGE were able to target a broad audience with ITV programming such as Emmerdale and This Morning reaching potential apprentices along with businesses who were interested in taking on apprentices. 

Idea

We needed to challenge the perception that the farming industry was just about muddy boots and sheep. EDGE wanted to target people outside the industry, who had never considered farming before and demonstrate that farming is a high tech, highly skilled industry. 

Implementation

EDGE ran a campaign on ITV VoD alongside the airtime activity to further extend the reach of the campaign. ITV worked closely to help arrange filming and supported the client throughout the whole process.
