30 Twitter Accounts For FTSE100 Companies

30 Twitter Accounts For FTSE100 Companies

It is always good to hear from people who have never used Social Media before, and they contact you months later down the line to tell you how it helped them from a job-hunting perspective.  Earlier in the summer I was asked if there was anywhere on the web I could find a Directory of UK employers on Twitter.  I have not been able to find an extensive directory/list as such, but there are pockets of information and some links to Twitter accounts on the internet if you are good at searching.

All of the FTSE100 have their own career pages and jobs you can apply to on their main website, but a lot have also moved onto Twitter too.  As well as getting information and news about their products and services onto the web in an instant, Twitter is also a means to attract potential employees.  As I couldn’t find a list of employers with Twitter accounts all in one place, I thought it would be a good idea to make a start of doing it here!

.

Whilst some companies have very active and informative Twitter streams which could help you decide if the company is one you would want to work for, others have not been used for a long time and tell you very little.  Interestingly, businesses such as AB Foods and British American Tobacco have yet to even set up an account (or one that I could find), which being one of the largest corporate’s in the UK I found puzzling.  As you read through the companies therefore, you will notice that some do not have a Twitter account listed.  If you manage to find one that is relevant for job seekers, do please let me know so that I can update this post….

.

So far, I have managed to find the Twitter accounts for the first 30 FTSE companies in alphabetical order. I will keep adding to the list in the next few weeks and update it here for you, then you will be able to “follow” all companies in the FTSE100 who have Twitter accounts with job-related content.
