Social media is an under appreciated channel when it comes to sourcing and attracting new hires.


Businesses use social media to attract new customers and clients; so why not also use it for recruitment?


Some recruiters dress this up as ‘inbound recruitment’ and ‘employer branding’. Not that they aren't valid ways of describing digital marketing as a recruitment channel, but making anything sounding too complex is an effective way to discourage people from attempting something new.


So we thought we’d make it easy. Here are a few ways your business can use social media and digital marketing to attract new recruits.


#1: Go Behind the Scenes


Show and tell people - through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and other channels - what it's like to work in your office(s).


Tell individual stories. Maybe you took on an apprentice, and they’re doing so well you hired them in a full-time role: Tell that story. Maybe your team enjoy Krispy Kreme doughnuts and BrewDog on a Friday afternoon: Show people.


Make it fun.
