Social Media Enhancing Arborist Recruitment

by Citywide | 10.06.2011
Conversations between people are nothing new. Technology is. The scarcity of qualified talent has seen Citywide enter the social media arena, as it seeks to fill roles in its tree services division.

Early adopters have a lot to gain by embracing the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter as they search for skilled staff. The Internet is now providing organisations like Citywide with a direct link to engage prospective employees, provide information relating to specific roles, answer their questions and help facilitate the recruitment process.

“Hi my name’s Jason and I’m an apprentice for a tree services company in London. In the future I want to move to Aus and work as an arborist. I thought I would get in touch with you to ask what sort of qualifications I would need to work for a company like yours. “ sent via Facebook Mobile

Aside from being cost effective and instantaneous, engaging potential candidates through social media has the potential to reach not only people who are actively looking for work, but provide relevant information about your services to the broader market.

Treescapers.com.au is Citywide’s dedicated arborist recruitment portal. Providing an insight into the daily activities undertaken by its arborists through regular blogs, images and video, the website has already successfully attracted a number of skilled candidates seeking employment with Citywide.

Supported through Facebook and Twitter, Treescapers over the past two months has grown rapidly allowing Citywide to communicate with potential employees both here and abroad on a whole new level.
