Recruitment tech PR was just the job

The Brief

Firefish Software, based in Glasgow, helps hundreds of recruitment agencies manage candidates and vacancies. HTR was asked to boost Firefish’s profile and showcase its expertise in recruitment issues.

Our Strategy

By understanding the interests and areas of expertise among the company’s leadership, we developed thought leadership pitches for a selection of industry titles and mainstream media. We offered expert insights on the big issues of the day, such as: the “Great Resignation”; attracting talent in a candidate-driven market; navigating the transition to hybrid working; and leadership lessons learned from the pandemic.


Over a six-month campaign we secured 19 pieces of media coverage, reaching a potential audience of over 700 million. Highlights included being quoted in a long-read on the BBC website, appearing in columns in the Herald and Business Leader, and in trade titles such as HR Magazine and Global Recruiter.


“Hot Tin Roof delivered some great results during a six-month business profile-raising PR campaign. We were featured on the BBC, in the Times Raconteur and in Business Insider UK, and we shared opinion editorial in Business Leader, Enterprise Management 360 and TALiNT to name a few. 

“I was impressed by the way the team at Hot Tin Roof was able to adapt to our tone of voice really well and ensure that Firefish’s personality and expertise came across in the content they delivered for us. They were tenacious in driving results and I would certainly get back in touch if I need PR in the future.”

Wendy McDougall, Founder and CEO, Firefish Software
