Social Media – Candidate Concerns over Confidentiality and Unwanted Exposure in Senior Level / Executive Recruitment

As an organisation we feel it is important to embrace social media and it most definitely plays a key part in our recruitment strategy in terms of raising awareness of our business and our current opportunities on sites such as Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook; however, given the profile and seniority of individuals we recruit and represent, we firmly believe that not everyone wants everyone else to know what they are doing when they are exploring potential new career opportunities. So in terms of senior level / executive career moves confidentiality is key!
The level of openness associated with social media, is obviously fine for social purposes, however, we feel that professional people are becoming much more considered and aware of the implications so subsequently take  a different approach when it comes to careers and communicating amongst their professional network. We feel it has a place within certain areas of  the recruitment sector especially where there is more volume attached, however, we are finding that more conventional methods are still prevalent across our business sectors.
