Champion Communications, the B2B PR consultancy that helps technology companies grow, has been chosen by talent acquisition platform SmartRecruiters, to provide UK PR support. The appointment is Champion’s seventh new business win of 2021, following recent partnerships with HeleCloud, Clear Junction, Versarien PLC, GreyOrange, Ivanti WaveLink, and Logicalis UK 

SmartRecruiters empowers businesses to acquire the talent they need to succeed. Recruiting is a fragmented, opaque process undermined by outdated technology that can add complexity and turn to candidates and hiring managers. SmartRecruiters solves this challenge by providing an end-to-end platform that allows businesses to reach, engage and connect with talent in a comprehensive suite of solutions.  

SmartRecruiters has chosen to work with Champion due to its proven record in supporting the business growth of its clients, primarily through elevating its clients' profiles in the media environments that engage decision-makers. Champion will drive awareness, generate third-party endorsement, and establish trust and credibility in SmartRecruiters and its solutions.  

Champion will also be deploying its suite of digital services, including LinkedIn lead generation and SEO optimisation, whilst also measuring impact through its Coverage Impact Monitor, which connects editorial to business development. 

“This is an incredibly exciting time for us at SmartRecruiters. Over the past year, we’ve seen rapid growth due to increased demand in talent acquisition software caused by the pandemic. The way our customers are recruiting is changing and evolving and they need a flexible, reliable, end-to-end technology platform to enable great recruitment, especially in a global talent shortage.  

“As we look to respond to the increasing demand in the market, we need to make sure we are the first port of a call for businesses looking to digitise their talent acquisition process. We’ve therefore chosen to work with Champion due to their proven track record in helping technology businesses like ours grow,” says Fabrice Etienne, Head of Marketing for SmartRecruiters. 

Harry Webster, Associate Director at Champion, said: “During the last year, recruitment, employment, and the future of work have all been high on the editorial agenda due to the way they’ve all been shaken up by the pandemic. We’re therefore really excited to start working with SmartRecruiters, and can’t wait to start getting them involved in these conversations as they continue on their growth journey.”  

The account will be led by Associate Director Harry Webster with day-to-day management from Account Manager Amisa Saari.
