The UK’s biggest recruitment marketplace totaljobs.com, have brokered a deal, to sponsor the new listen live functionality across GMG Radio’s Smooth, Century and Real stations in Scotland and the Northeast and Northwest of England.
The campaign is an extension of totaljobs’ initial 3 month sponsorship of GCap Media’s One Network website’s which covered the UK as far North as Trent.
The new websites’ tuner page sponsorship is modelled on the recent highly successful campaign and includes co-branding, a pre – roll commercial in local accents and an animated banner.
