ECB asserts value of employer branding in renewal of annual license with GlobalSportsJobs
London, UK, 11 December 2013 – The England and Wales Cricket Board have again renewed their annual GlobalSportsJobs license demonstrating that the continued development of their employer brand is critical in the increasingly competitive digital marketplace.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), established in 1997, is the national governing body responsible for the management and development of all cricket in England and Wales. ‘The ECB has used the GlobalSportsJobs digital media platform since 2011 and we are delighted with its capability and service. It not only delivers our employment brand to a targeted audience, but it also provides us with a diverse range of good quality candidates, in a cost effective manner that is ideal for our continued professional development.’ – Lesley Cook, Human Resources Manager at England and Wales Cricket Board.
‘We are very pleased to be able to extend our excellent working relationship with the ECB. It is a pleasure to work with an organisation that values its people as an asset rather than a commodity and the value that we are able to deliver to the ECB demonstrates the significant influence that digital is having on the changing talent landscape,’ said GlobalSportsJobs founder and CEO Will Lloyd. ‘A quarter of the ECB’s total workforce was sourced through GlobalSportsJobs last year – it’s a significant accomplishment. This degree of success is exactly what continues to attract sport organisations to our network.’
