When done right, the recruitment process should be a seamless one. It should be a collaborative engagement that sees your recruitment consultant working with you to source the best candidate solution for your business.
We see and hear firsthand, the frustrations of clients and candidates who have been through a recruitment process and left dissatisfied with the outcome – falling foul to a recruiter whose mindset is about the ‘deal’ and not the people.
Being pushed in a direction that you’re not comfortable with or given the ‘hard sell’ approach on a candidate are strong indicators the recruiter working on your behalf is not genuinely focused on your business.
Tim Chapman General Manager, Permanent Recruitment, says, ‘Personally, I think it’s really important to be transparent throughout the whole process. If a candidate references poorly then it’s vital to let your client know this. Being honest and working with clients to identify their business needs and challenges develops long term, trusting relationships that lead to more work. Focusing on a quick deal does just the opposite.’
