Irish Recruiter

The Twitter Job Search post today reminded me about an account I opened to check Twitter some time ago. The Irish Recruiter Twitter account: http://twitter.com/irishrecruiter

By using the Twitter Job Search I found and Irish recruitment agency Grafton Recruitment using the Twitter Job Search already. Actually they submitted their jobs 6 hours ago. I wonder if there have been any applications. Grafton Recruitment also has their own Twitter account and I found the press release linked from it. The PR is on onrec:

Grafton tweeting recruits to a new career
26/03/2009

Recruitment firm connects online offering to global twitter phenomenon.
Grafton Recruitment has become the first recruitment agency anywhere in Ireland to incorporate the revolutionary internet tool ‘Twitter’ as an integral part of their e-marketing strategy.

The company have used existing technology to ensure that every new job posted to their own website broadcasts as a ‘Tweet’ on Twitter which is then added to the TwitterJobSearch.com database opening up Grafton jobs to a potential worldwide audience.

As well as this facility Grafton Recruitment will also be ‘tweeting’ updates on news, industry statistics, market trends as well as exclusive jobs making it one of the must-read recruitment Micro-blogs online.

Nico Fell, Grafton Recruitment e-Business Manager said:

“By allowing candidates to follow Grafton jobs on Twitter, we have created a channel of pull media which is perfect for those on the move or people who aren’t based in front of a computer all day. With mobile access and the explosion of the iPhone and Blackberry into the online world, sites like Twitter and TwitterJobSearch.com are ideal for keeping up to date with the latest jobs. With this new tool commuters weary of their current job can keep up to date in the market for a more rewarding role on the way home from work.”

Outlining Grafton’s experience of how the job market has become increasingly global in recent years. Mr Fell said,

“Grafton Recruitment’s own site attracts visitors from over 130 countries worldwide and will be complimented well by the global reach of Twitter’s new job search service which is already serving over 80 countries. We see the competition for roles coming not only from local candidates but also those from overseas as the willingness to travel to find your ideal job increases.”

This weeks’ announcement comes on the back of Grafton Recruitment’s recent shortlisting for ‘The Recruiter Awards’ for Best Recruitment Firm Website and Nico Fell said the Twitter service was just one of a number of recent innovations Grafton Recruitment had added to their online service as web-based traffic continued to grow.

So the new buzz in town is: Grafton is on Twitter!
(you read it here first! …. or perhaps on onrec,… or actually on Twitter,… :)

Where are the Recruitment Agencies in Dublin?

Ever wondered where are the recruitment agencies in Dublin? Well Golden Pages has a service called FindOnMap.ie that has a location on the map of their listings in the Golden Pages. How accurate it is? Be the judge yourself:


dublin recruitement agencies

I know one thing I did a training and consultancy in the recruitment agencies this year From Swords to Bray, and even further in Graystones. None of those recruitment agencies are on the map. Perhaps those are other counties? Bray and further south is Wicklow, and perhaps those are only the Dublin based displayed?

A nice touch from the Golden pages, I think. Is it worth their subscription fee, that is another question.

96 recruitment agencies opted for this advertisement. I wonder if it brought any business?
