Badge of Quality Assurance…
Another disappointing trend this year has been the increase in the negative comments on social media about recruitment consultants. I must confess that I am not a huge fan of online outing, but I also think that the industry needs to take note as the strength of feeling out there implies that we may be falling short of expectations. But not all recruitment firms are the same…
At Walker Dendle we pride ourselves in offering a highly professional, transparent and consultative service to our clients and candidates alike and we act with the utmost integrity on every occasion. The positive feedback I receive as Managing Director, and the fact that each month 80 percent of our vacancies and 25 percent of our registrations come from returning hirers and candidates respectively, referrals and recommendation, supports this view and I am confident that our customers will enjoy a very positive experience when partnering with us.
But, with so much choice and competition in the local market, how can a consumer ensure that the recruiter they choose is genuinely committed to best practice and not just personal, short-term gain?
