recruiters network
This is a very simplistic theory, but I think it bears exploring.  In my experience there are two distinct types of recruiters; those who naturally thrive in the recruitment of Permanent Staff, and those who excel running a Temp Desk.   Perms recruiters typically handle 10 to 15 concurrently running recruitment projects, which can each...
This is only one of the many reviews you can read of the #TRULondon Unconference, which took place near Brick Lane, in London’s East End, from the 16th to 18th February.  Slap bang in the middle was the first UKRecruiter Networking event of the year, at the same well-appointed venue. I’ll leave it to others...
I’ve been attending networking events for the online recruitment sector since 2001.  They have been a staple in my annual calendar, and have been an invaluable part of what I do.  Because I live 400 miles away from the throbbing metropolis, (the big smoke, that Laandon town) they have given me the opportunity to meet...
I’m going to rewrite my blog from yesterday, as when I reread it, it was crap – badly written and too lengthy.  It seems I’m not the only one, as very few people read it.  Here’s the potted version.  Ahem… Because I’m a recruiter by trade, I judge everyone I meet in a clinical fashion....
Right I’m going to speak plainly here, and use some blunt language.  Please don’t confuse my frankness for callousness.  Maybe I’ve always done this but, as a recruiter, when I meet new people, I always weigh up how they fit into the already large group of people that I already know.  A new person could...
This isn’t an original thought, but it’s my spin on it. This week I met with a large number of recruitment agency directors at a UK Recruiter networking event.  James Caan was speaking, and two other guys.  No offence to the 2 other guys, one from Barclays Capital, I think, and the other was a...
As anyone who has spent more than five minutes as a recruiter will know, there are many aspects to the industry, and many different types of personality which work well in the space.  I’ve been in several positions myself, from perm and  professional contractor recruiter to agency owner, technology director, and very rarely, temp recruiter....
No not you, and I hope not me.  I’ll try and keep this short, as there are already way too many blog articles discursively annotating the onward march of the social media phenomenon.  Pop is indeed eating itself. In my view, the Network Effect, that is the key to the success of Linkedin, Facebook and...
Gary is an average jobseeker; currently in employment, working in an insurance company in Manchester, aged 33, wife, 2 kids etc etc.  He’s not looked for a job for 4 years, and has stayed longer than he’d planned with his present employer, rather than risk a move during the recession. So like 87% of jobseekers...
The Recruiters Network has drawn me to London every few months since 2003. Based, as I am, 400 miles away from the epicentre of the UK online recruitment industry, I found it to be an invaluable way to network with the very people I needed to see most. Remember, this was before Twitter, Facebook and...
