Event description


Social Media for Recruitment and Talent Acquisition

Recruitment is one of the most expensive things any organisation does. Not only the cost of agencies and advertising, but the time it takes to review applications, interview candidates and get that start date confirmed. This goes hand in hand with the challenge of retaining quality staff and maintaining a positive company culture.

If you have talented, skilled and engaged staff, other people want to work with them. Social media tools can really help you to shout about your current company culture, encourage quality applications and save money in the process. Whether it’s longer term talent management or straight Head Hunting, we will take you through all the opportunities available and help you to decide on the methods that are best for you.

Our co founder Jennifer Begg has been working in media and communications for 11 years. From the commercial team at Guardian News & Media to developing educational curriculum and delivering large scale, national social media campaigns; she has combined practical experience with training delivery. Jennifer develops all of our course content alongside our experienced trainers and consultants. It is vitally important to Jennifer and TwoBees that all our content is not only of the highest quality but is structured in a way that facilitates and encourages learning. We don’t just want to see you on our courses, we want to see you put your learning into practice and watch you succeed!
