6 Recruitment tips

The very best candidates are often happy where they are and need a little "wooing" before they'll consider another career opportunity.


A good Recruiter can discreetly start sounding out high quality candidates without compromising you.

Remember to ask what the Candidate will do, not what they can do. 

Mass market blanket trawling attracts the wrong people, and wastes time and resources. Being very precise however, attracts an ideal group.

Don't be put off by job hoppers. Often they're highly talented and can give you say two years great value before moving on.

Avoid assigning too many Recruiters to your search. Contradictory messages are often given putting off ideal candidates.
