Every consultant in the executive search or recruitment space is different in nature. All endeavor to give clients the best service available with the knowledge and resources at their disposal.
Here are some ways to get the best out of a consultant that is assisting you with your vacancy:
📌 Be clear on your expectations, service delivery, and timeframes. This is important to a consultant as this will set the boundaries when working with them.
📌 Be honest and truthful – the more you open up to the consultant, the better fit the candidate will be to the vacancy criteria in terms of skills and personal attributes.
📌 Regular communication throughout the process is essential. This will allow to overcome any hurdles/challenges that the consultant might face instead of ignoring these issues.
📌 Integrity – understand and acknowledge the work the search consultant will deliver and the added value that is given to this type of service. Their research will be in depth and highly effective.
Us recruiters often get a bad rap but like any other industry, there are good and bad ones so hopefully, you come across more good than bad.
