The Financial Times newspaper launches a new look recruitment section today.
The weekly UK Executive Appointments supplement will now include at least three pages of editorial content every Thursday alongside classified advertising.
The editorial will include a cover feature of topical interest – the first one looking at leadership succession planning, as changes at Barclays, HSBC and Vodafone hit the headlines. There will also be a weekly interview with a senior, high-profile executive, covering their career path and tips for success, or business people who have made a dramatic career change, as well as other articles on the process of hiring or getting a job and a look behind the scenes at the art of headhunting.
Executive Appointments is a leading global recruitment channel for executive-level positions in both the private and public sectors that has increased its market share in print recruitment advertising year on year. The exec-appointments.com website, has over 340,000 registered users, generating 2.5 million page impressions a month.
FT recruitment editor Peter Whitehead says: “The investment in editorial copy for Executive Appointments provides an exciting opportunity to reach beyond active job seekers to everyone who cares about their career and to businesses that care about who they hire. We are confident that it will prove invaluable to anyone interested in gaining access to the recruitment industry’s knowledge and experience of the world of work and business trends.”
