Are you tired of working with recruiters who over-sell and under-deliver?

Promising the earth. It’s a common mistake that recruiters and head-hunters make. Badgering clients and prospects, assuring them that they can solve all their problems and then failing to deliver.

Does this sound familiar?

What causes this merry-go-round of failure is the sales culture that is so prevalent in recruitment. The endless targets for targets’ sakes. The sales funnel approach whereby if enough of the proverbial is thrown at the wall, then some will stick.

It must be exhausting for everyone involved. And it doesn’t produce results. Well, it does some of the time. 20% of the time is a good performance in lots of these companies. 25% is outstanding.

Wouldn’t you prefer to get the right result 100% of the time?

A retained search with a proven process works. We know because it’s how we work. And we deliver on time, every time.
