A multi-channel approach for hard-to-reach talent


Multinational investment banking company, Goldman Sachs, were looking for a multi-touch campaign approach with the aim of engaging a diverse range of students and graduates for their early career opportunities. They specifically sought to target STEM students, women and black heritage talent - to break down social mobility barriers. 


Here’s how Goldman Sachs worked with Bright Network to produce a multi-channel approach, securing higher engagement with hard-to-reach talent: 


  • A Premium Employer Profile on the Bright Network platform, featuring their opportunities and showcasing the firm

  • A targeted digital activation campaign, including 7 emails with focussed calls to action to students and graduates of diverse backgrounds

  • Presence at Bright Network events like Bright Network FESTIVAL, as well as targeted diversity events such as Women in TEC
