Podcast: Social media and recruitment

We discuss the use of social media in the recruitment process and look at the results of our recent survey on the topic.

Subjects covered in this week's podcast include:

  • which social media channels employers use in their recruitment processes and what they use them for;
  • the benefits of using social media in recruitment;
  • the legal considerations around using sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to attract candidates; and
  • risks relating to discrimination and data protection if using social media sites to screen candidates.

In addition to listening to the audio, you can download the podcast transcript.

Presenter Laura Merrylees is joined by Jo Jacobs and Susie Munro. Edited and produced by Claire Scullin.
