About us | JVP Group | In-House Recruitment Support & Job Vacancy Advertising

We do job advertising differently

Be bold. Be picky and choosy about who you work with.

When your potential employees have an amazing experience with the candidate journey, you’ll attract and get to choose the best people on the job market.

A different approach to helping employers hire

We're JVP Group, a job advertising and recruitment marketing company that likes to do things a bit differently. We take the hassle and the high costs out of talent attraction and the recruitment process, and keep our clients smiling with our flexible, creative, and innovative approach.

We focus on transparency bringing job opportunities to life using the power of employer brands, and we know that internal demands often dictate the importance to progress the recruitment process at pace, so we don't hang around, give us the nod and we're on it.

What do our clients say about us?

They tell us we're more knowledgeable, more conscientious, more efficient, more attentive, and deliver more value. And that's how we help them attract the best people to drive their organisation forward, save thousands on recruitment spend, find time for all those other non-recruitment related tasks, and be happy.

Who are our clients?

We formed in 2013, and we're proud to still be working with our very first client Platts Animal Bedding. We're picky about who we work with as relationships and results really matter to us, we're here for the long term not a quick win. The industries we support employers in is wide from retail and manufacturing, engineering and tourism, to IT, healthcare and construction. Our clients are literally all over the UK and these organisations range in size from SMEs to blue chip, and from the private and public sector to charities and non for profit.

Some clients JVP works with

To consistently drive results, we always craft bespoke strategies around specific client briefs. Every job advertising campaign is different whether we’re promoting a vacancy for an Animal Keeper or an Engineering Director, but one thing always stays the same: we’re always JVP Group. And we're always a recruitment business partner you can trust. That's two things, actually.

We're different to basic online job posting companies, job boards and let’s not get started on recruitment agencies.

We don't aim to be the cheapest, we're the best

We have no desire to take your money and do a 'post and pray' job listing service - we're here to deliver value, producing the best results for you, and that requires effort and expertise on our part, and it all starts with the best advert content from the outset. That old saying, you get what you pay for.

One job board alone does not cut it from our experience, given that there are over 1100 job sites in the UK. Our approach is to leave no stone unturned, with access to hundreds of job boards and social media channels we make sure your job adverts are in the right places so are seen by the right people. And because we buy job board credits in huge volumes ,our comprehensive advertising packages will always be more cost effective in addition to the extra value they provide, than for you to directly go to a collective range of leading, specialist and regional job boards.

JVP excellent customer service

JVP Group: Not another recruitment agency

And we are definitely not a recruitment agency - we're asked this one a lot as soon as the word recruitment is mentioned, but nope, no database of individuals to sell to you, no popping out 'Our client...' job adverts to then charge you an extortionate introduction fee for each individual you hire! There is a place for the many thousands of recruitment agencies, but the world of recruitment is rapidly evolving and with the right technology and support at your fingertips, there is nothing to hold you back from implementing a direct recruitment strategy that really works at a fraction of the cost you would spend using recruitment agencies.

Not another recruitment agency

Our specialism is recruitment marketing...

We write, advertise and market your employer branded job adverts effectively online, then the data from applications belongs to you. You can choose the level of support and solutions you require from us and it will always be a fixed fee from the outset with no hidden costs, no extra charges for making multiple hires per advertising campaign.

Recruitment marketing specialists

A tailored approach to every campaign

From entry to executive level, London to Inverness, zoos to engineering companies, there is a bespoke solution for every recruitment campaign.

We combine our extensive experience recruiting across a wide range of disciplines and industry sectors, knowledge of the power of employer brands, intuitive recruitment software and experience using a wide variety of selection tools, to deliver comprehensive solutions that really add amazing value.

The little details matter to us too, we like to get things right first time, and that's why so many companies work with us for all of their recruitment needs and keep recommending us which we really appreciate.

Some job boards on our network

Whilst we support employers across the UK, you'll find us in the smallest city in the UK, rolling in the hills.

We're based in St Asaph in North Wales and moved into brand new state of the art premises in 2019. We have the space to think, the room to grow and facilities to enjoy. Happy employees lead to happy clients – and we really do look after our people.
