Published: April 28, 2015

The role of a Sourcer has fragmented from that of a talent acquisition specialist, and in recent years we have seen further fragmentation with various specialisms existing within sourcing itself. Sourcers have to be able to find and attract potential candidates (both active job seekers and passive candidates) from an ever-increasing number of online sources and do so in a way that is quicker and smarter than their peers in other companies.

Social Talent and Alexander Mann Solutions partnered to survey 328 Sourcers to see just how well they understand and use online tools, particularly social media. Our participants included Sourcers that work in-house, those that work for third party providers and agencies, those who are new to the job and those who have been doing it for years.
