Krux Drives High-Precision Audience Targeting for, Resulting in 5x ROI

Share is one of the UK’s leading job boards. It carries over 165,000 job postings, attracts six million jobseekers and generates more than two million job applications every month. Thousands of recruiters, from multinationals to smaller regional businesses and recruitment consultants, use to recruit people across almost every sector in the UK. 

The Challenge

For, matching employers and jobseekers is a win-win business — the online job board generates over 2.8 million applications a month, leading to thousands of filled jobs. But the company always aims to set new highs to ensure it continues to provide the best quality and experience for clients.

To deepen the company’s value for both recruiters and jobseekers, the data-savvy team at needed a data management platform (DMP) to provide in-depth intelligence on its people data. By obtaining deeper insights on each candidate, the company could deliver more personalized content through email alerts and while candidates are onsite. The team identified its DMP needs around two key objectives:

  • Deliver highly-relevant job opportunities to candidates through various ways, including email, onsite recommendations and retargeting. For registered users on, this would mean more personalization at timely moments across all devices. For unregistered users, who needed to be identified anonymously, tailored job opportunities needed to be determined by behavior and other engagement signals. Finally, for all users, aimed to display relevant job opportunities that jobseekers might not be considering or seeing during their onsite search. 
  • Increase the number of completed online applications by qualified candidates through orchestrating online experiences tuned to each candidate’s job requirements and search phase. To achieve this, needed a better understanding of every user’s job search journey.
