Commenting on the research, Melissa Furze, Senior Insights Manager at LinkedIn EMEA, said, “It’s great to see that recruitment agencies are leading the way when it comes to social engagement. With PageGroup on top of the list this year amongst more than 60,000 recruitment agencies, job-seekers have a wealth of options when looking for a new role. This means that the effective use of social media to engage and attract candidates, as well as new business leads, can be a huge advantage to recruiters looking to stand out from the crowd in this competitive environment.’’
