Jobs.co.nz and Justin Flitter team up to bring social media to the recruitment industry in New Zealand
Posted on 11-Jul-2011 14:39. | Tags Filed under: News.



Jobs.co.nz has started offering social media training courses for its clients, recruiters and any businesses that are interested in learning and utilising outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Up until last month, Jobs.co.nz offered its clients information on recruitment through social media sites and gave examples on how to target a new and passive audience.

Social media can be complex and providing the tools doesn’t necessarily mean the knowledge on how to connect and engage with your audience comes easily. “The team at Jobs.co.nz and Justin Flitter are so excited to be providing full social media workshops for companies who want to take advantage of outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn,” says Kirsti Grant, Client Solutions Manager at Jobs.co.nz.

“It was clear that our clients really wanted to get involved in using social media for recruitment but they needed some help with developing strategies and learning how to implement and manage them. We also really like the idea of being able to up skill their staff and start building some real talent within the social media space in NZ. When looking at who in New Zealand might be able to help us with this new product the obvious choice was Justin, his knowledge of social media and enthusiasm is exactly what we’re after”

Justin Flitter, (justinflitter.co.nz) a social media strategist in New Zealand with over 35,000 followers on his Twitter account @justinflitter and more than 1,300 connections on LinkedIn, noticed Jobs.co.nz was different from stand alone job boards due to their active engagement and interest with social media, and took on the opportunity to share his knowledge and experience.

“People are talking about your business every day. You can choose to ignore those conversations or use them to promote your business,” says Justin.

Jobs.co.nz is also currently offering free jobs listings for any employment opportunities in Christchurch area.
