LinkedIn training for Recruiters (Agency and Internal)

In many people’s minds, recruitment is going through a step change with the advent of social media channels such as LinkedIn that open up access to both people and information. Unsurprisingly, identifying and approaching the right candidates as well as targeting new clients and new openings using the channels that social recruiting offers is taking on greater importance but at the same time delivering new challenges.

With over 550m users worldwide and over 24m in the UK alone, LinkedIn provides access to a vast potential pool of talent and organisations – the challenge is to use this effectively. LinkedIn offers recruitment agencies, executive search and recruiters in general a hugely important tool which has enormous potential both on the client side and in terms of candidate research.
