“Very pleased with response to recent Teaching Fellow position we advertised through CMS.  Great service, thanks!”

Jane Delany, Director of Dove Marine Laboratory, Newcastle University (April 2016)

“We used CMS for advertising our 13 Capturing our Coast vacancies in summer 2015 and had a fantastic response of very high calibre applicants.  This is the ‘go to’ place for marine graduate jobs, and we got a far higher response from this than other advertising routes that we used.”

Lisa Johnson, Event Manager on behalf of North Sea Marine Cluster (March 2016)

“We have been very impressed with the service received from CMS for marketing our event.  The advert was turned around very quickly and the service very professional, including receipt of advertising statistics a couple of weeks after the mailing.  The traffic received on our event webpage was clear to see via Eventbrite analytics.  Would definitely recommend.”

Tricia Marshall, Flood & Coast 2016 (March 2016)

“Your email blasts proved to be one of our most effective marketing tools.”

Francesca Moore, Black & Veatch Ltd (February 2016)

“We are very pleased with CMS’ services and support in preparing and sharing an article on our behalf. Their support was second to none. We were particularly impressed with the statistical summary we received after the article was published. We will definitely use CMS again in the future.”

Dan Edwards, AECOM (January 2016)

“Many thanks CMS for providing this invaluable service. We received numerous applications for the Marine Scientist post and have now successfully appointed a high-calibre candidate. We would certainly use you again.”

Joanne Hill, HaskoningDHV UK Ltd (November 2015)

“We received an excellent response to our experienced Graduate Environment Consultant job advert.  The quality of applications was very high in comparison to other methods of advertising and we have now offered the position to a candidate who applied via CMS/Bob Earll.”

Colin Trundle, Cornwall IFCA (October 2015)

“Many thanks for the stats report, interesting reading.  We received 93 completed applications for the post.  Although we can’t pinpoint where people found the vacancy, I’d be confident that the majority came via CMS.  Thank you.”

Jane Delany, Newcastle University (September 2015)

“We advertised our 13 marine scientist posts across 7 institutions for the Capturing our Coast project with CMS and had a fantastic response. It is increasingly becoming the ‘go-to’ portal for marine science graduates seeking employment. The CMS team are eternally efficient and helpful.”

Martin Bloxham, The Barefoot Thinking Company Limited (September 2015)

“We’ve used the CMS advertising service to publicise our Challenge of Science Leadership (CSL) Short Course for nearly 3 years. The service is targeted at exactly our audience and every email circulated has resulted in new participants for our course. It represents great value for money and is now part of our regular marketing programme.”

Mike Hardy, Northumberland IFCA (July 2015)

“We have twice advertised with CoastMS.co.uk for Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Officer (IFCO) vacancies and been delighted with the service provided and the level of response. Coast MS successfully reached the people we hoped to attract for our vacancy.”

Rob Lawson, Artesia Consulting (July 2015)

“The CMS team were helpful in making sure everything was right before our job advert was published and the wide circulation of the CMS email made sure the advert reached our target audience.  We found CMS a very helpful and cost-effective way of advertising our job vacancy.”

Richard Spooner, Cadcorp (6th May 2015)

“We received a dozen conference registrations from people we had no visibility of, and the event ended up being oversubscribed! Many thanks.”

Simon Brockington, International Whaling Commission (24th April 2015)

“The CMS website and email distribution service is an easy and economical way to advertise vacancies.  We had over 100 high quality responses to our recruitment for a Project Development Officer, and Bob and Jayne were especially helpful and supportive.”

Emma Spedding, Amec Foster Wheeler (4th March 2015)

“We have used the CMS advertising service on numerous occasions to advertise job vacancies in our Marine team.  Jobs are advertised promptly and we always receive a great response rate.  Our most recent advert, posted in December 2014, attracted over 80 applications and we have now successfully filled this post.”

Ruth Hynes, Network Manager CIRIA (2nd February 2015)

“Working with CMS enabled us to reach highly relevant and senior professionals when promoting a call for papers for the European Marine Sand and Gravel Group conference. The process was simple and quick with excellent customer service and the outcome was highly successful with a number of our chosen conference papers coming through CMS. I would recommend CMS and will be using their Marketing services for future promotion.”

Terry Sloane, Planet Ocean Ltd (14th July 2012)

“Just to let you know we received three extremely good applications from your post and we will be appointing one of them this week. This certainly did the trick and I would not hesitate using your services again.”

Caroline Salthouse, North West Coastal Forum

“With regard to the recently advertised ‘Regional Coastal Project Assistant’ job, we had10 applicants who cited CMS as where they saw it advertised (out of 97 applications received). This may not be a huge proportion but they seem to be the ones with the more relevant experience and qualifications so definitely worthwhile advertising with you.”

Dr Ian Gloyne-Phillips, Centre for Marine & Coastal Studies

“We have had an excellent response to our Marine Biologists job advert. What is noticeable compared to previous occasions, when we have used national press/magazines, is that there are a much higher percentage of high calibre applications meeting the job criteria, so we have clearly been successful in reaching the target audience.”

Caroline Barraclough, Sales and Sponsorship Spearhead Exhibitions Ltd

“We have had a fantastic response to the email you sent out for us. So much so that we would like to send another one which may find us some more delegates.” Spearhead had to go on to use a room to accommodate 200 delegates, twice the number originally anticipated.

Robert Morgan, Glamorgan University

“Since you circulated information about my MSc Coastal Conservation & Management course this morning, I have already had 34 enquiries! That is more than four times as many as were generated last year by an advert in the Guardian which cost almost £1,000. I think I might ask you to do this again!”  This illustrates how effective this Service can be – four times the response at a 10th of the cost of a normal advert

Dr Paul Webster, Hydro-Logic Ltd

“Many thanks for advertising the above meeting, I tracked the applications made through your mailing and it yielded an additional 15 registrations bringing the total up to 99, which is a good attendance for this type of meeting.”

“Thanks for forwarding on this email – Coastal Management Questionnaire. So far I’ve had a total of 220 responses which I’m very pleased with.”

“Thank you for sending out the Green Blue research tender. I had over 80 expressions of interest and about 20 tenders from a wide variety of organisations, so it was very successful.”
