UK Sourcers is back with a new website!
I started UK Sourcers in 2009. I think I finally have the time to show the project the love it deserves. I have started by putting together this brand new blog. I have imported a few of the best posts from the old UK Sourcers Posterous here to keep things all in one place.

We have had some great events in April.
Reconverse hosted a great event on Mobile Recruiting. Take a look the results of their mobile recruiting survey. If you’ve not thought about how mobile should fit into your candidate sourcing and attraction strategy, maybe it’s time to now. The event also inspired this blog post from James Mayes – have you ever thought about using Wi-Fi for recruitment?
Social Media In Recruitment from Web Based Recruitment, saw large numbers gather for the fourth year in a row. Lots of past attendees were back to tell how they had implemented the use of Social Media within their teams and businesses. I’d recommend following all the speakers on Twitter.
The FIRM hosted another great event, this time focused on Cost Effective Resourcing. They have also announced a whole series of events coming up soon for In-house recruiters.
Coming up on 1st May we have Recruiting Through Social Media from Recruitment International. I will be there talking about how I used Social Media with Capgemini Consulting. You can also read more about that on my blog.
I sometimes spot people looks for jobs or people looking to hire recruiters on Twitter. This month we have opportunities for:
A white collar construction Recruiter for @OysterPartners – See the tweet
Sourcing Across The Pond
Buffer App – A nifty tool I’m trying out for scheduling tweets after hearing so many good things about it at the Social Media In Recruitment conference.
dabr.co.uk – A tool built in the UK for accessing Twitter on your mobile phone, great if you don’t have a smartphone. Read more about what Dabr is from one of its creators, James Whatley.
Maddle – Recommended at Social Media In Recruitment this week for getting your careers site mobile friendly very fast. Find out more about this Netherland’s based startup in this video from the guys at mRecruitingcamp.
I hope you found this news roundup useful – if you have anything you’d like me to include in future, do let me know.
