4 Cs For Solid Social Recruiting Foundations

It’s been a while since my last post. It would appear a new job and the birth of a 2nd child can be rather draining on ones time. Who would have guessed? It hasn’t been all inductions and nappies though. No siree. The last few weeks has seen me putting into practice the theory I’ve been prattling on about over recent months regarding social recruitment… And I’m loving it! Out of respect for my employer’s confidentiality I can’t go into too much detail but Tesco are at the early stages of a…See More

Employer branding the social recruiting way

Following some recent conversations and having read some LinkedIn discussion threads lately I’ve been doing some pondering on the subject of employer branding. Then, because I couldn’t help myself, it got me thinking about the role social recruiting can play within it. If choosing between a combo of me + thinking vs. a combo served up at your local Colonel Sanders eatery you’d probably get more…See More

Why UK recruiters shouldn’t put all their eggs in the social media basket quite yet

Posted on September 6, 2011 at 4:30pm 4 Comments

I’m obviously a huge fan of what social media is doing in the world of recruitment. I genuinely am.  I’m truly excited by the way digital social platforms are shaking up recruitment & selection as a whole.
