Guardian Jobs for Smarter People

Guardian News & Media (GNM) is running an advertising campaign positioning Guardian Jobs as the forward-thinking job solution for both recruiters and candidates with the new endline ‘Smarter People. Smarter Searches’. A playful new mascot, created by illustrator Al Murphy, appears on the Guardian Jobs website and Twitter page and Facebook page, on posters in London Underground stations, on print ads in The Guardian, the Observer and, as well as in recruitment trade press. The campaign will be supported by promotional activity including sampling of the Guardian and branded giveaways of Guardian Jobs tote bags and fliers at key London transport hubs.
