Social Recruiting Conference 2010, to be held in London on 30th November 2010, will gather together leading employers and recruitment industry professionals, to passionately discuss and practically demonstrate the power of Social Recruiting. #SRCONF will focus on Social Recruiting case studies, with measurable ROIs. It will feature speakers from diverse industries with invaluable experiences, from some of the UK and world’s leading employers.

Social recruitment strategy might be defined as a recruiter or company utilising relevant social and professional networks to do what recruiters have always done best, and that is to network. It is simply extending your networking into an environment where your target audience is now spending a significant amount of its time. Today, that is on their mobile phone.

Mobile phones have become the de facto means of telephone communication across the world. If recruiters want to reach their candidates (and vice versa) then they have to have a plan for using Mobile technology, whether it is by voice, text messaging, websites designed specifically for Mobile web browsing or the burgeoning market for apps.

In a recent survey conducted in the UK by allthetopbananas.com:

  • 95% of Smartphone owners when asked said they would consider job seeking on their Mobile
  • 90% of Smartphone owners when asked said they would use Push Notifications/Direct Alerts for job information
  • Of all Mobile users 80% would like to learn more about hiring companies on their Mobile.
