Guardian and Financial Times in recruitment partnership

The Financial Times and Guardian have embarked on an industry first with a unique joint recruitment advertising solution for senior public sector positions. Advertisers who place a non-finance senior public sector job in SocietyGuardian will have the choice to extend their campaign reach and run the same ad in the Financial Times newspaper Companies & Markets section on a Wednesday and on the Business Leaders page in Executive Appointments on a Thursday.

Combining the Financial Times unrivalled reach of the C-suite audience and the Guardian’s dominance of the public sector, this new opportunity will enable advertisers to reach 370,000 job seeking senior professionals from both the public and private sectors – more than any other quality newspaper.

In this challenging and mature recruitment market, this advertising solution provides clients with an easy way to reach a wider and more diverse pool of candidates.

Adam Freeman, Commercial Director of Guardian News and Media commented:

“The Financial Times provides us with a unique opportunity to extend our reach and further enhance our public sector offering to clients.”

Dominic Good, Financial Times Commercial Director EMEA added:

“The distinct audiences of both newspapers combined provide a unique and powerful opportunity to advertisers to reach the very best candidates for the senior jobs.”
