New toolkit launched to help recruiters promote their good work
“We have launched a new member toolkit to enable recruiters to talk up the value our industry delivers to individuals, businesses, and the wider economy. Jobs transform lives: we want REC members to shout about the difference we make on a daily basis so we get the recognition we deserve. This toolkit has been designed to help you get that message across to your candidates and clients.
“The toolkit is free to REC members and contains research and resources designed to help you communicate effectively about the great work you do. We want to raise the profile of our profession and to do that we need you to talk up the value of recruitment and promote the Good Recruitment Campaign to your clients. In doing so, you will improve our industry’s reputation.
“We have won the economic argument that a dynamic and responsive recruitment industry is a critical component in creating the best jobs market in the world. The Good Recruitment Campaign promotes our industry to your clients. The missing element, up until recently, has been demonstrating how we help individuals get jobs that transform their lives. That means talking collectively about the good things the recruitment industry does and the difference we make so that recruitment is recognised as a good profession.
“With your support we can take these messages to government, the media and the wider public – but we need your help. We want you to use the toolkit in your communications, and let us know what you’re doing with the hashtag #jobstransform.
“What you do matters – let’s tell more people about it.”
In your free toolkit you’ll find the following resources that will enable you to take positive messages about your good work to clients and candidates:
• ‘How to champion your good work’ e-book of recruitment industry facts and stats to use when talking to clients and candidates.• Drafted tweets and text for LinkedIn, Facebook and blogs to post on your social media accounts.• Template emails to customise and send to your clients and candidates.• PowerPoint template to use when presenting to clients and candidates.• Case study template to help you write your own case studies (and email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you promote them).• Window sticker to print and display in support for the message that jobs transform lives.• Online banners, ready to be uploaded to your website.• Twibbon to add to your Twitter account and use with #jobstransform.
