(PRWeb UK) March 23, 2011
Now in its third year the next Social Media in Recruitment Conference - http://www.SocialMediainRecruitment.com - takes place in London on Thursday 7th April 2011 with some of the UK and Europe’s leading organisations sharing their Social Media knowledge and results.
In the current economic environment more and more Recruiters are utilising Social Media as part of their recruitment strategy. By using the popular sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, Recruiters are able to reach future potential employees in a way not possible before using traditional media. Although Linkedin has been around since 2003, Facebook since 2004 and Twitter since 2006 it has only been over the last few years that the use of Social Media in Recruitment has really started to take off.
The Conference will cover the following subject areas aimed at sharing with Recruiters the latest trends, case studies and industry best practice:
- Building a business case for Implementing Social Media
- Social Media ROI – what is it and how do you measure it?
- Using Social Media to Raise Your Employer Image and Build A Talent Pipeline
- Getting the most from using LinkedIn effectively in recruitment
- Gaining a competitive advantage through Internet Sourcing
- How Facebook can be used by Recruiters to build a brand and generate hires
- Developing a Global Social Media Strategy

Mike Taylor, Managing Director of Online Recruitment Marketing Specialists - Web Based Recruitment - organised the UK’s first Social Media in Recruitment Conference in July 2009 and commented “Back in 2009 our first Conference was more or less a case of educating delegates as to what Social Media was and how they could benefit from using it in recruitment.”
A second Conference quickly followed in April 2010 which also included case studies from delegates who were sat in the audience the year before. “That really was a turning point for the use of social media in recruitment as it clearly showed what results could be achieved in a short time from following advice and taking action” continued Taylor.
“With the third Conference set to include even more case studies and success examples there is something in the programme for everyone, whether they are just getting started or looking to increase their previous knowledge.”
