Deloitte: Be Invincible

What worked for us in 2020 / 2021?
• Campaign that was directly targeted to our students
• Tone of voice
• Modern design and elements
• The inclusiveness of the campaign

Rationale for 2020 / 2021
We created the DYIS platform where not only did our graduates belong but they were the founders, which meant they left their legacy. This is a great role that the graduate recruitment campaign was recognised for, because we aspire to be leaders in our industry.

We need to leverage off the previous campaign and what has worked for us without completely discarding it and creating confusion. Tag line: Be Invincible!

Our vision was to look for Young Invincible, that has not changed. We are looking for the best of the best, the bold thinkers, the ones who are aware of what it takes and are going for it.

Information Sharing Webinar (AGSA)

With limited face to face interaction at Universities – students seemed to be more anxious about the fate of their futures. There was an increase of students signing more than one contract in an attempt to ensure that they receive employment.
The anxiety was primarily caused by the unavailability of face to face interactions with forms/ organisations and the clarity that is provided through interaction, with many students having brief online interactions at career fairs or online interviews.
The AGSA introduced ‘the webinar’ for all candidates that have applied – it compromised of an hour session that had the objective of providing detail to students; who were they applying to, the vision, mission and values of the organisation, the auditees, the programme they had applied to, an introduction of the office team members, a chance to ask any questions.
The webinar provided candidates with the opportunity to get to know the organisation without committing to anything or being a part of a formal interview. The value add has been phenomenal thus far and provided the candidates with a much required interaction.

Creating Together: Virtual Recruitment Campaign (PwC)

Graduate Recruitment in South Africa has always been competitive and with the global pandemic, this added to the already challenging landscape.

The pandemic forced us to look beyond the traditional approach, to make an impact on students across the country and spark an entirely reimagined way of communicating. Alongside the PwC values and our mission statement to build trust in society, we embarked on a virtual journey, eager to challenge the norms.

Under the banner of creating together- Our new recruitment campaign was anchored on various webinars, direct mails as well as social media. Our agility, flexibility and creativity was tested and from that stemmed an innovative, engaging and interactive national campaign. By leveraging technology we were able to create the same impact with students that we would’ve had prior to Covid-19.
