This creates massive issues – mainly that their alignment is to placing people into jobs, at any cost, irrespective of whether it’s a good fit for their candidate or client. The “people first” element disappears – and if any industry needs that, it’s this one. That isn’t how we work. It’s so far from how we work, in fact, that we don’t even call ourselves recruitment – we’re a talent business.
Our commercial activities sit with a separate team to delivery, and our people are professionals, paid way-above-average salaries, and bonuses based on client delivery, and team and company performance, not individual revenue generation.
Put simply, our employees are aligned with delivering for our clients and growing our business – not with their own pockets.
