LinkedIn and recruitment – can we help you?
More and more businesses are using LinkedIn as a recruitment tool – in fact – we actually found our (currently on maternity leave!) Social Media Content Creator Isabella via LinkedIn!
I was talking to a SightCare member recently and generally picking her brains about various aspects of membership and one of the areas she expressed wanting more help with was recruitment and sourcing a pre-reg. We as an organisation have been down the recruitment agency road before with mixed success so I wasn’t sure of the benefit of re-opening that particular dialogue…BUT….it got me thinking what we could offer and I started thinking about LinkedIn.
One free way to advertise jobs is to post directly on a company profile page and in a relevant group – if we could use our platform on LinkedIn, perhaps we can facilitate advertising members’ job opportunities?
As of a couple of weeks we now have a company LinkedIn page – https://www.linkedin.com/company/sightcarelocal – please follow our page and share to your network so that we can grow our following from the independent optical industry as much as possible. Then when you have a job to advertise or a position that needs filled – contact us so that we can post to our network of independents.
If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, start the new year with a new (professionally on LinkedIn) you! And if you’re not sure where to start, we have a guide on how to set up your profile (https://www.sightcare.co.uk/social-media-guides-beginners/) and some tips from our keynote speaker at our 2017 conference to help you along your LinkedIn journey.
Let’s see how our collective networks can help us!
