I’m delighted to announce the first issue of TeamPlayer360, a new voice for recruitment and the sectors only free printed newspaper for jobseekers and HR industry professionals. TeamPlayer360 covers topics core to the HR Industry as well as highlighting various market sectors, news, help and advice, graduate placement, internships, employment law, employers, management, leadership, training and much more. I lead a lively and robust group of recruitment professionals, press experts and specialist journalists.
Why did we launch a newspaper when everyone is digital? It’s just for that reason. Do you find yourself inundated with online content, emails, electronic marketing, mobile content, videos? We spend our life staring at screens. To engage in news and things that matter, in a different, more tactile format of a printed newspaper is such a relief. This is a fresh approach to recruitment and an accessible voice for jobseekers.
With the average turnover of staff rate expected to leap from 14% to 18% in the next few years reaching 4.7 million in 2018 and with 2.24 million unemployed in the UK today, there are over 8000 recruitment houses in the UK, the newspaper is aiming to fill a significant gap to get both sides interacting.
We have a 50,000 copy print run of TeamPlayer360 distribution with over one thousand direct industry points, including London and major city stations, HR Directors, CEOs, hotels, leisure centres. People wanting a copy can order through the Emblem Group contact below.
We are keeping the voice of the paper “conversational intelligent” and we hope that the classy design and the perceptive, relaxed content, will enhance the pleasure of the newspaper’s reading experience and will make TeamPlayer360 an important addition on the monthly ‘must-read’ media circuit.
We are turning the trend on its head and producing a high quality PRINTED newspaper. TeamPlayer360 is a unique and important new voice for HR professionals and Jobseekers and provides a platform for the industry helping to build an important interactive bridge between both sides of the playing field. We hope you enjoy the read. Write to us and let us know what you think or indeed you might like to contribute! If you would like a copy email us.
