Case Study 4: Wily Work for Dreamworld
Project: Summer Casual recruitment drive Dec 2007
quickbrownfox involvement: Agency Head overseeing and guiding Account Manager in strategy, directing creative teams (final say on all artwork), media strategy.
Dreamworld needed to recruit a large number of summer casuals (~600 staff) to meet their parks’ needs over the Christmas peak season (this was a significant increase (113%) on the prior year). Their primary target audience were net heavy users of traditional media and other competitor companies were highly visible in the market a the same time looking for the same people. Dreamworld had to not only stand out but be the employer of choice for this market.
Adopt an alternative media strategy to reach as many Gen Ys as possible. Critical to position Dreamworld as a preferred employer.
Postcards – In-park promotion
Dreamworld successfully hired enough staff for the summer season (600+ staff), of which almost 400 stayed until the end of the season and over 300 decided to stay in full-time employment.
