This week's chat

April 4, 2013 #CommsChat on recruitment in the communications industry

The comms job marketplace has always been a competitive one. Now, with the rise of apprenticeships and training-based qualifications, a competitive industry has become an even more crowded one.

#CommsChat be joined by Alice Weightman from Hanson Search, a comms recruitment specialist, who will discuss the latest trends and challenges facing communications hopefuls.

The topics are below:

  • How is recruiting for comms specifically different than acting as generalist recruiters?
  • What are the challenges facing the UK communications industry? And in Europe?
  • Have the rise in apprenticeships and comms qualifications changed recruitment for employees and employers?
  • Do specialisations within the industry – content, SEO, social media – present a challenge?
  • Has the growth of the tech industry in Britain created different kinds of jobs and encouraged different kinds of people into communications?
  • Where is recruitment headed over the next five years?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place from 8-9pm UK time – for worldwide times, go here. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will go up on Tuesday morning.

We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics for #CommsChat – get in touch with Brittany by email or Twitter if you’ve got ideas.
