Work category




Profile Activity

As a Community Manager at Social Talent, I create and manage talent pools of potential candidates on behalf of both recruitment consultancy firms and corporates, driving engagement, new membership and data-mining members as a potential pool to source new candidates from. This involves a whole host of activities, from video production, blogging, updates and deploying engagement strategies.

At Social Talent, our core services are

Training recruiters in the Black Belt in Internet Recruitment, an intensive three-stage course on how to leverage the internet and social networks to identify the perfect candidates for their vacancies, and how to source them. Our expertise is in the use of social media, the internet and technology to recruit talent - elements that are core to our unique range of services.

We create, build and manage talent communities on social networks on behalf of recruitment clients and corporates, from which our clients can source candidates directly, massively reducing their acquisition costs, and gaining a distinct competitive advantage. By outsourcing the social media presence and talent community management to Social Talent, recruiters by proxy use the most innovative technologies, methodologies and sourcing techniques available without having to devote internal resources, time and capital. We provide recruiters with a direct source of passive candidate profiles and contact information as we build niche, targeted communities from which they can source for their role needs.

Social Talent also produce Weekly Wednesday Webinars, free to watch live at 4pm GMT each week, on a range of recruitment and social media topics. Visit www.socialtalent.co/webinars to register free.
