Recruitment, in our view, is best led by a combination of networking and, if necessary, advertisement. This leads to significantly higher quality, more cost-effective role-filling and considerably better outcomes for both employer and employee.
The agency model is often overpriced and lacking in quality. With relentlessly demanding financial targets placed on their teams, many recruitment agencies act primarily for themselves. This can leave clients with too many low quality cvs, lack of proper candidate assessment, talked-up salary expectations and conflicts between clients; all of which may leave you coming off second best.
