Shayne Parfrey, Jarrodean Healthcare

"Thanks to Niche Jobs we've made some good placements over the years. I know they work hard to reach nurses and other healthcare staff that I can't find elsewhere. They also seem genuinely interested in providing a useful, free service with information for their audience - setting them apart from stand-alone jobs boards. They're a very friendly team too and that helps when I have a problem that I need to quickly resolve."

Beyond Interactive Communications

"We've worked with Nurses.co.uk for many years now. They're fine partners: friendly, cooperative and really happy to help. They also come to us with innovative ideas and suggestions on improving response rates, job ads and suggesting raised activity levels."

How Do We Attract Our Audience

Unlike many sites we don't buy much search traffic (Google Adwords) and we don't pay for any clicks from third party sites at all.

Instead, we try to publish high quality information. And because we have a unique angle, we enjoy a large and engaged audience.

28 days of data for Nurses.co.uk from October-November 2020 (Google Search Console Insights)

Our audience is passive (reading articles, watching our videos) and active (coming to our site specifically to search for jobs).

We closely monitor our search traffic. We've identified over 100 key search terms around jobs and career related searches and we're pleased to say that we rank in the Top 3 on Google for most of them, and in the top 10 for the rest.

We are very active on social media:

100s of videos on YouTube
We enjoy big audiences on Facebook and Instagram

We also create staffing information for those working in recruitment, retention and training in health and social care.

About the author

  • Matt Farrah
    Co-Founder - Nurses.co.uk, Socialcare.co.uk, Healthjobs.co.uk, Healthcarejobs.ie

I studied English before moving into publishing in the mid 90s. I co-founded this and our other three sites in 2008. I wanted to provide a platform that gives a voice to those working in health and social care. I'm fascinated, generally, by the career choices we all make. But I'm especially interested in the stories told by those who choose to spend their life supporting others. They are mostly positive and life-affirming stories, despite the considerable challenges and burdens faced.
