Erin Associates scoop Agency Central social media award

Sian Nolan and Kevin Drinkwater

Didsbury recruitment firm Erin Associates have been awarded a trophy proclaiming them the champions of Agency Central’s Social Media Recruiter 100 competition.

The award recognises Erin Associates as 2017’s most influential UK recruiter on social media. Agency Central’s Managing Director Kevin Drinkwater traveled to Didsbury to present the trophy to Sian Nolan – Erin Associates’ Resourcing Manager.

Agency Central began running the Social Media Recruiter 100 competition two years ago with the aim of fostering friendly competition between recruiters. The system measures a recruitment agency’s Klout score and ranks it against that of their competitors.

Competition data shows that UK recruitment agencies have become increasingly social over the last two years. This suggests that agencies are discovering the benefits social media can bring to their business.

Erin Associates’ director Shaun O’Donnell put the firm’s social media success down to having a consistent presence across various platforms, including LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. He had the following advice for other recruiters on social media: “Instead of just posting out jobs, try and get involved in conversations and don’t try to be controversial. It’s all about adding value and giving them a reason to keep following your content.”
