These days it’s unusual for a company to have no presence on Twitter at all, as businesses across a variety of industries have realised the advantages of using social media to connect with their customers and clients. The recruitment industry is no exception. Agencies are now using their Twitter accounts to not only post jobs but show off the unique personality of their teams.

Twitter is a great tool to showcase your business and show you’re not just a faceless company - by uploading funny and topical content as well as the day to day spiel you’ll soon have the followers flocking.
