Another day, another snarky (and valid) tweet about how a shit recruitment agent (note I say agent, NOT consultant) has done something stupid and wasted someone’s time, or worse still.
I’m a big fan of positive action, and I _know_ there are some great people working in recruitment services. I agree the industry on the whole is mostly full of sloppy sales people who often have a poor understanding of our industry, and seems to attract folks with dubious morals at best. BUT, there really are some gems out there who get tarred with the same brush.
So, please – if you’ve had a good experience with someone working in the recruitment industry, I’d really appreciate it if you could mention their name and what company they’re currently working for below (with a url) and what you do – and we can build up our own mini database post that others can refer to. Even if you’re reading this ages after I’ve posted it, but have a recommendation to share – please do.
We can nurture and incubate the good’uns in the industry by celebrating those who recruit well and giving them more business; let the shit ones fester in their own mess.
I’m only interested in positive attributions here please, I want this to be a useful post for folks looking to recruit knowing where to go and for what specialism.
I may even turn this into a small industry awards and super group with it’s own manifesto.. But please, candidates and clients alike: help me highlight who you recommend.
EDIT – Due to the overwhelming comments for Barry, I am now closing comments on this post. It was meant to be a nice way of highlighting many different recruiters, but it’s turned into something quite different. Ho hum.
