By egg I mean Recruitment Consultant! Is your Consultant doing the best they can for you, what’s expected, are you asking too much?

Firstly let’s clear something up; a Recruitment Consultant’s purpose is to fulfil the needs of their Client.

The Client is both the Candidate AND the Employer.

It’s simple, we find people for jobs and jobs for people. We get the right person for the right job and lead by example.

So how can you tell if your Recruitment Consultant is a bad egg?

For the Candidate:

  • They don’t call you back when they say they will
  • They send out your CV without consent
  • Mis-matching you to a company with the wrong culture fit
  • Fail to deliver constructive post interview feedback – whether successful or not
  • Call at a time that suits them (not you)
  • Doesn’t consult you on your next career move
  • Refuse to take ownership and have your best interests at heart.

For the Employer:

  • Questions value for money. Recruitment is expensive and you should know how your money is being spent.
  • Consistently fails to understand your business needs
  • To brush over a candidates weaker points
  • Doesn’t offer an alternative strategy if you’re unable to fulfil a role
  • Thinks the best candidate is the first available candidate
  • Sends through CV’s that don’t match the brief
  • Doesn’t follow the companies recruitment procedure

What’s great about Bad Eggs is that they make us ‘Good Eggs’ shine. Our challenge is to use these negative perceptions and realities to our advantage, by genuinely offering a quality driven, honest and thorough service.

Seven pride themselves on nurturing both new and existing relationships. In 2016, 75% of our total sales came from either repeat business or recommendation.

We work with customers who value us and return to us time and time again to fulfil their employment needs. Candidates who prefer us and will come to us before all others. This is how recruitment should be and if it doesn’t ring true to you, give us a call and see for yourself.

“Difficult to improve as it is probably the best service I have received from a recruiter” – A recently placed candidate at Sodexo.

“This is, without a doubt, the best recruitment company I have worked with. Having worked with some big names in recruitment I would recommend Seven above all” – Another happy client at Mars

Happy Easter Everybody!
