Rolls-Royce explores social media for recruitment drive
David Woods, April 05, 2012
Automotive manufacturer Rolls-Royce has launched a social media recruitment drive to post its job vacancies and engage with applicants online.
Rolls Royce is working with Staffbay, which provides a career profile builder including videos, messaging and webcam Skype chat for employers to review, all designed to help candidate and employer get to know more about each other.
Elliot Kidd, co-founder of Staffbay, said: "With youth unemployment at record levels it's now more vital than ever to make the right impression with prospective employers."
The news comes just days after Derby-based engineering firm Assystem - which works closely with Rolls-Royce in the city - revealed it was planning to recruit 300 experienced engineers and graduates to help it keep up with demand.
