Our latest social media briefing Using social media in your recruitment process, an essential guide for NHS human resources (HR) directors and managers, explores how social media can support your recruitment process.
The increase in the use of social media sites raises the question of whether platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook and twitter can help attract a higher percentage of applicants to vacancies in the NHS.
Increased use of social media in the NHS
Traditionally, recruitment has attracted applicants through adverts in local newspapers, trade journals and by word of mouth. In the past ten years, there has been a growth in online recruitment through websites such as Guardian Jobs, Monster.com and NHS Jobs.
As part of our drive for a permissive use of social media in the NHS we have launched our latest social media briefing on recruiting in the NHS.
