Leading Recruitment Company Experience Immediate Return on their Digital Technology Investment

Harnessing the power of digital technology is paying dividends for Ireland’s largest recruitment company.  Since re-launching its website in December, Grafton Recruitment has seen a 15% uplift in traffic to the site.

As well as a new website the company, which has its Headquarters in The Boat, Belfast, ten branches throughout Ireland and a further 50 offices across the globe, has invested over &pound1,000,000 in digital recruitment capacity and is placing increasing importance on the power of Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn as a means of connecting top talent with vacancies.

At a recent & lsquo;Breakfast at the Boat’ seminar on & lsquo;Recruiting in the Digital Era’. Grafton Group CEO, Jason Kennedy, spoke of the need for employers and employees alike to take advantage of social media when it comes to advertising or seeking a new role: 

“We actively encourage all our clients to take a proactive approach when it comes to using social media as part of the recruitment process - particularly when it comes to filling posts with a quick turnaround - or those which require individuals with a very specific skill set.

The ability to have virtual conversations with an entire network of individuals on what is sometimes a global scale means that we can often unearth the perfect candidate for a post - maybe someone who wasn't even proactively job hunting at that time.”

Grafton Recruitment already employ a dedicated team of digital consultants, but are planning to equip all their consultants with the necessary skills and training to maximise the opportunities offered by this developing sector.
