30 Employers Using Twitter To Recruit

30 Employers Using Twitter To Recruit

I was asked last week by someone registered with McGinnis Loy, our specialist HR & Finance recruitment business if there was somewhere they could find a directory of UK employers using Twitter, as they wanted to set up a new account to follow and track employers they were interested in working for.

I have not been able to find a directory as such, but there are various blogs out on the web which do list a number of employers with Job-related Twitter accounts that could be of interest to anyone currently job hunting.  Another great resource to sign up to is TwitJobSearch which is a custom made job search engine for Twitter.  It allows you to type in the specific role/job and location you are interested in, and it will give you the results of the most recent tweets relevant to those jobs in the geographical area you select.

.

Earlier in the year, I did write a number of articles about Twitter for the Graduate job market, with links to employers who had set up Twitter accounts and were recruiting graduates to fill a number of roles.  The blog “60 UK Twitter Accounts for Graduates” does contain employers that could be of interest to professional job seekers too, so do take a look.

.

To give you a head start with other employers, I have compiled a list of 30 large companies here in the UK who have a specific recruitment/HR Twitter Account and they ’Tweet’ their current jobs to their followers.  As an example from the list below, if you are interested in working for Accenture, just copy the “@accentureukjobs” handle into your Twitter search field, and then you will see the timeline for everything Accenture has tweeted about that is job-related.

.

Whilst some employers are a lot more engaging and constantly use Twitter more than others, you will only need follow each company once for it to become effective for you.  After that, all tweets will come directly into your timeline, and many employers will put a link on the Tweet which automatically takes you to the job vacancy.  Many larger corporate’s here in the UK have become more savvy in using Twitter as a platform to source job seekers over the past few years, and I am sure over time that more in the SME market will follow suit too.

.

If you come across any other companies that have a job-related Twitter account that is worth following, then please let me know so that I can add them to this list for everyone’s benefit.
