Fast Track Recruitment

Another quick peek into the soul of a recruitment agency

Posted by Mitch on 21st May 2014

Yesterday I saw a Recruitment Trainer job advertised as a status-update on LinkedIn with an annual salary of £25K + 5K bonus.

When I asked if the job was part-time, the recruiter who posted the update deleted my comment.

Pretty much everything that’s wrong with recruitment agencies is encapsulated right there.

Or to elaborate, recruitment agencies paying next-to-nothing to failed recruiters to train their staff to continue being the types of recruiters that drove so many companies to build their own inhouse recruitment function.

And then closing their eyes and singing “la, la, la, la la” at the tops of their voices.

Here’s the other quick peek into the soul of a recruitment agency.
