Who We Are

The Discovery ADR Group is widely respected as one of the UK’s leading recruitment, training and performance improvement companies.

We have pioneered a diagnostic approach to recruitment and development that delivers exceptional results in a climate that is dominated by an outdated model.  We embed best practice across our client’s businesses through our blended approach which provides long term and sustainable solutions.  We help organisations reduce the significant cost wasted each year on inappropriate hires and ineffective training.

Whilst our scope of expertise covers all industry sectors we are particularly strong in the food, manufacturing and engineering markets, domestically and internationally.

What’s the Role?

We recognise that marketing plays a very big part in the success of a business especially in an industry of high participation.

Through our specialist companies we offer a unique approach in attracting, assessing supporting the right candidates for our clients from graduate level through to senior executives.

As trusted partners we offer insight and expertise and, through continual innovation, we help ambitious global companies to capitalise on future opportunities by investing in their people.  Our services and values are delivered through one or more business streams and therefore this role is a group role where we need to get the right message across to our clients, who are both organisations at the one end and in respect of the recruitment element, graduates and executives at the other.

The role of a Marketing Executive is to drive revenue and, by implementing the marketing plan, develop Discovery ADR Group’s market and profile in line with the marketing and business strategies.

  • Work with the in-house database and CRM systems to ensure that from a marketing perspective, it is optimised (the data is clean, segmented and up to date) and use the systems for mailing extractions and candidate / client analysis
  • Monitor and evaluate marketing activity and candidate / client feedback
  • Act as a representative and advocate of Discovery ADR and undertake additional duties as required
