UK Sourcers’ News – 25th June


This week marks the return of the Social Recruiting Conference from Crexia. If you haven’t got a ticket yet then why not snap one up while there is still time?

If you can’t make it to the conference on Thursday then I’ll be providing live tweets and more on the day, just follow the #SRConf hashtag on Twitter to keep up to date.

You can also join us on Twitter on Wednesday evening at 8pm for #SRCHAT, Crexia’s weekly Twitter chat. The topic this week will be “Key features of a social careers website”.

Social Media

Last week I seemed to be campaigning for more profile photos on Twitter. You are your avatar on Social Media, so don’t be an Egghead on Twitter!

Google Plus is arguably the most powerful resource to emerge for sourcers and people researchers for a long time. Irina Shamaeva shared a great post on the SourceCon blog about Google+ for People Sourcing.

If you represent a sizable brand and have not heard of, then it might be time to check it out. Glassdoor is a site where people can share information about companies from salaries to company culture to what an interview is like. The site is mainly US focused but is starting to see some usage in Europe and the UK. You might also find this video interview with Samantha Zupan, Corporate Communications Director at, interesting.

If you have anything you’d like to share on our weekly news round-up then do let me know – are you hoping to hire a sourcer or an Internet savvy recruiter, planning an event or know of a great tool? Then get in touch.
