Introduction
Steve Ward is the award-winning Social Recruiting Strategist, who as Founder of CloudNine lived and breathe social media - as it specialised in recruiting Social Media & Digital talent, and built advocacy and credibility from within the industry. We made a point of co-existing in the space, being acutely visible, and building a business through reputation and recommendation. 

Having walked away from CloudNine in September 2015, Steve is now an independent consulting entity again, with these areas of focus: 

  • Retained Digital/Social Media Recruitment - still recruiting, but mainly helping businesses who have never, or never successfully hired a 'Social Media Manager' or something akin, know who they should hire, and how to assess suitability select. And of course I will identify and recruit that person, and where beneficial - sit in on the interview process. More of a management consultancy service, than a recruitment agency one.  
  • In-House Social Recruiting Strategy - helping businesses apply social media sourcing, campaigns, pipelining and attraction to their direct-hiring model. 
  • Recruitment Agency Training in Social Recruiting & Business Development - well, it is what I'm known for! I want to help good recruitment businesses understand how they can use social marketing to raise the bar of their brand perception and draw inbound business & candidate flow.
  • Training & Consultancy around Talent Attraction in Digital Transformation - I am especially proud and thrilled to be collaborating with Tiffany St James and Charlie Southwell in their terrific Digital Transformation business, Transmute. We will be bringing a Talent Attraction & Engagement module to their repertoire, and in doing so joining up some of the final dots in how their brilliant model completes the digital change cycle in progressive business. 
  • Inspiring Future Digital Talent - as yet an unclear journey. Following the thrill of running #MyDigitalCareer in July, I still have an eye on creating #MyDigitalAcademy - looking for funding and serious collaboration on that. But I want to bang the drum for digital careers amongst our developing and future talent, and ensure the best opportunities to learn and get a commercial hold on this industry are provided. Two of my next 2 speaking gigs focus on this subject matter, and are for these people, and their career advisors. I want to work with more people on this area.
