Recruitment should NEVER feel like a production line!
Posted by Lawrence Bond July 19, 2019
If you’re a candidate, the process of looking for and accepting a permanent new job is often one of the biggest decisions in your life. Recruitment Consultants often forget that careers and families are dependent upon the success of this decision. Too often they treat the recruitment process as if it’s a production line of ‘fees’ and they forget the human element. Ironically, most recruitment consultants have gone through the same experience when choosing their own roles, however this is often a distant memory to them.
Equally, the process of hiring a new person into a business and the impact on time investment as well as cost implications, mean that it’s normally a huge decision for the recruiter and the Company too.
Having worked in this sector for over 20 years, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Regardless of the size of the agency, the level of the candidate or their seniority within the recruiting company, recruitment is a ‘person’ business.
