Unfortunately, I hear many tales of disappointment from people when it comes to their dealings with recruitment consultants. From communication issues (or indeed no communication at all!), a poor quality brief, lack of support and guidance to downright lies. I’ll be honest and admit that there are times in the past when I’ve not been as good as I should have been at getting back to people due to the pressures of the job (and at home!).
However, from now on I will guarantee to anyone who deals with me and Wilson Brook that you’ll get clear and timely communication at every stage of the process, with as much support, advice and guidance as I can possibly provide. I take a long-term view – if the current assignment I’m dealing with isn’t right for you for whatever reason I will always respect your decision. There could well be others in the future that are a better fit.
The people I place often go on to become clients – given their positive candidate experience they then want me to support their business in finding members of their teams.
I will discuss potential opportunities with you as and when suitable assignments arise. I will share information with you as necessary and answer your questions as best as possible to enable you to make a decision as to whether to move forward with the specific opportunity. I will then provide you with support and timely feedback throughout the process. In return I ask for the same in terms of honest and prompt communication.
Any additional information that you can provide me with, in order that I better understand your background, key skills and achievements is always welcome.
The vast majority of what I do is company led & assignment based – companies engage (retain) me to conduct proactive searches (head-hunts) on their behalf, leaving no stone un-turned to identify the best possible individuals that fit their brief. It is a very thorough, high quality/low volume way of working – in that given the amount of time and effort that goes into each assignment I can’t deal with hundreds of assignments at any one time. Therefore, you may not hear from me all that often!
What I may also do, in certain limited circumstances, is work proactively with an individual to help them identify new career opportunities. It is a highly confidential and discreet approach, designed to identify potential roles that aren’t on the open market. If this sounds of interest to you then I will explain things fully, allowing us to decide together whether it is appropriate.
