One of the best places to find new employees is on social media. If someone sees a role you post, and is already a follower, you’ve got an applicant who is a guaranteed fan of your business or brand. On the other hand, if someone comes across your post who isn’t actively looking for jobs, it could be a chance to win over great talent in your industry by giving them an enticing picture of what working for your brand looks like. Today, we’ll take you through some of the best ‘We’re hiring’ social media post examples, to give you some inspiration when recruiting online.

1. Create a carousel post to share all the information you need, without crowding your content

Oma Kitchen did a great job of recreating a job posting by splitting it up in sections via an Instagram carousel post, using clear headings such as ‘about us’, ‘about you’ and ‘about the role’.

2. Create an eyecatching job post by having a little fun with it

Kool Kanya took a spin on a classic ‘Wanted’ poster by adapting it to the format of a job posting. Not only is it clear and concise, but it is also fun and playful!

3. Show your company flair or niche through the design you pick

If you’re in a specific industry, you can use this to your advantage by incorporating it into your job posting’s design. Something Cool Tattoo created a unique visual design by fitting it within their niche and making the post look like a real ‘tattoo’.

4. Communicate your company culture and benefits

One thing that can have a strong pull in convincing someone to apply for a position is the benefits or company culture that a brand has. By using a video format you can get all of this across visually, without having to include too much text in your posting. Below is a great example from SHFT.

5. Partner with an influencer in your niche

If you want to reach your perfect audience and don’t have a huge following on social media, you can partner with an influencer within your niche to help you advertise. For example, Monica Rivera frequently shares casting opportunities globally for aspiring actors as they pop up.

6. Show an example of what you need, with your posting

It’s always great to lead by example, and you can do this with a job posting. Walls & Trends created a piece of content to advertise a Creative Design job, by making the posting something they’d want the candidate to be able to create:

7. Introduce yourself as a manager, and create a human connection

A lot of the time, candidates will decide whether they take a job, based off of the people that they meet at the company, or the person who is interviewing them. Show some personality by featuring the manager of the report you are hiring for, so they can get a feel for your team members and who they might be working with.
If you want your job posting to reach more people, it’s a good idea to use a trending sound, as this will help propel your content as it gets suggested to a wider audience.

9. Show your place of work or workday experience

Give people a sneak peek into what a day at work might look like, by featuring your office or fun benefits your office might have. You can also use the popular TikTok format ‘day in the life’ content, to help prospective candidates get excited and picture themselves in the role.

Show off some friendly faces by creating a video similar to Framen’s below. You can add a call out to the roles you are hiring in the caption, to prompt people to join the team.

11. Partner with a job board

There’s some great accounts on Instagram that share out job postings on their pages. By partnering with one of these pages, it means you can reach people who are actively looking for work. If you have a website or blogging platform, this is a great way to expand on your job search and what you’re looking for in a candidate. You can also include your biggest criteria, your company’s core values, and any other content that can provide more insight into your brand. You can write the blogs yourself or use an AI blogging tool to create the article. Then, share the blog link across your posts, include them in on your job boards, and spread the word over social media.

12. Show all open positions to reach a wider network

Instead of just advertising for one position, show all open positions within your brand. This means that you won’t just be targeting one type of person, but a wider group of people who might see your post.
