Thompson Reuters

"My team found 3 long term contractors with niche digital and technical skills in less than a week"


Thompson Reuters is the world’s largest international multimedia news provider and reaches over a billion people every day.

THE CHALLENGE

Three vital projects reporting into Reuters News Agency’s Global Head of Marketing were months overdue, with one brief open for around 3 months before being posted on Worksome. Recruiters failed at bringing suitable highly skilled candidates to the employer, blaming Canary Wharf location and budgets, and projects needed to be executed urgently by an already stretched team.

THE PROJECTS

Senior Marketing Strategist – Planning & Execution (6 month contract)
Data Analyst – Performance Marketing Campaigns (6 month contract)
Senior PPC expert (2 month contract)

Within minutes of posting each project on Worksome, all three applicants had applied. The team at Reuters screened each candidates, amongst others, with telephone calls after reviewing CVs in their Worksome profile.

The contractors have experience across a variety of marketing disciplines; all involved with running nurture and performance marketing campaigns, social media and influencer marketing for major brands from major retailer Marks & Spencer and FMCG giant Johnson & Johnson to tech platform eBay and luxury online retailer Farfetch.

THE OUTCOME

“The freelancers operated during a period of significant business disruption in a complex, matrix organisation, building effective working relationships with critical stakeholders in a short space of time, and secured their buy-in, as well as delivering outputs on time and to a high standard.”
