Social Media for Recruitment and Talent Acquisition

CATEGORY: Social media


Recruitment is one of the most expensive things any organisation does. Not only the cost of agencies and advertising but the time it takes to review applications, interview candidates and get that start date confirmed. This goes hand in hand with the challenge of retaining quality staff and maintaining a positive company culture.

If you have talented, skilled and engaged staff, other people want to work with them. Social media tools can really help you to shout about your current company culture, encourage quality applications and save money in the process. Whether it’s longer-term talent management or straight Head Hunting, we will take you through all the opportunities available and help you to decide on the methods that are best for you.


Upon completion of this course you will have total confidence in how to recruit new staff using social media and have a thorough knowledge of the requirements for any ‘paid for’ activity. This course will also support you to strengthen your “Employer Brand” and develop longer-term talent attraction policies.
