Jobsite Unsponsors #truManchester and the job seeker experience

August 20, 2010

If you want an event like #truManchester, you need a supporter that is happy to do things a little differently. Attendees (or participants – taking a leaf out of the #likeminds book) don’t want to be sold to. They don’t want high-profile exhibition stands and brochures. That sometimes makes sponsorship difficult, but sponsorship is essential in order to be able to fly in some of the best track leaders and keep the ticket prices low. The cost of a ticket is only £100. At £50 a day that’s a tenth of the usual one day conference event ticket price.

We want our sponsors to be a part of the event not apart from it in an exhibition hall. We want them to be  active in the conversation because they are just as much a part of the market as the people who attend.

I’m delighted that following on from their succesful involvement at #truLondon, Jobsite are again supporting a #tru event. I’m grateful to Felix Wetzel, Keith Potts and the team for backing us again. I know they will be taking an active part in all the tracks, including leading a few. I’m interested in hearing how they are developing social media within the job board environment and about the findings from their ongoing research in to job seeker behaviour and attitudes.

Jobsite as a business are passionate about candidate experience. It runs through all their offering. As a result of the sponsorship, we can now offer 5 FREE tickets to anyone currently unemployed and looking for a job who is happy to take part in a track and discuss their real life experiences without pulling any punches. I think it could provide some very useful feedback to anyone present.

To qualify, drop a tweet to @BillBoorman or send me an e-mail: and tell me why you want to take part.

Thanks again to Jobsite. We still have a few sponsorship packages available for anyone else that wants to take part.
