Jobseekers turn to social media Say BLT
Jobseekers turn to social media in tough job market
With several thousand of the UKs 13 million jobseekers relying solely on the internet to find a job*, one innovative recruitment company has embraced this new era and will be declared UKs best management consultancy firm today this month, partly due to its trailblazing adoption of social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter.
Beament Leslie Thomas (BLT) was voted best UK management consultancy recruitment firm by more than 750 management consultants in Top-Consultant.coms influential annual survey conducted in February this year.
BLT is one of the few management consultancy recruitment firms in the UK regularly using social media tools such as blogging, Facebook, Twitter and even a dedicated You Tube channel to keep in touch with their database of candidates.
Social networking tools are no longer the domain of Generation Y and the IT industry, they provide an extremely effective way of engaging with our growing database of candidates on an individual basis, says Don Leslie, director of BLT management consultancy recruitment division.
Don Leslie, who started out with Deloittes business advisory team and has specialised in this area since 1983, was also voted UKs top management consultant recruiter in the survey.
Don Leslie and the team at BLT have consistently been top performers in our annual survey of management consulting candidates," says Tony Restell, director and co-founder of Top-Consultant.com.
This year the team at BLT have excelled themselves by winning both the top firm and top individual recruiter awards, an outstanding achievement, he says.
Candidates in the survey praised the professional way in which BLT treated them: providing prompt, honest responses and good feedback on opportunities and alternatives. Don Leslie was highly regarded for his in-depth market knowledge, enthusiasm in assisting candidates and extensive contact network within the consulting industry.
