Why I Love Recruiting

Two words: ‘PEOPLE’ and ‘BUSINESS’.


PEOPLE: There is nothing that fascinates me more, never has been, never will be. My job, especially as Im also a business leader is 100% about people. My clients are people, my talent are people, my employees are people and my services and solutions are all people focussed.

People are intriguing, frustrating, passionate, annoying, fun, boring, clever, dumb, irrational, rational, strong, weak, single minded, pliable, emotional, passive, dominant, detailed, sloppy, fearful, fearless, intuitive, blind (not in seeing sense), knowledgeable, well read, narrow minded, interesting, aggressive, friendly, desperate, cynical, angry, happy, caring, selfish…and the list goes on.

I am responsible and accountable for making sure that within this mix I introduce the right people to each other, keep them interested as they ‘date’, manage all the delicacies of their individualisms and the process they go through and then make sure they are happy thereafter. Now to do that well is a challenge. Its varied. It’s a journey and it has its ups and downs, highs and lows. No other job I can think of would deal with people in such a concentrated way.


BUSINESS: There is nothing that fascinates me more than Business, other than People. I get to see and listen to businesses and the people that make them every day. I get to learn about what works, what doesn’t, whats new, whats old, issues, solutions and everything in between. I get to see them grow and develop and become all they can become. I privy to insights and inside thoughts from the grad to the CEO.

I am responsible for listening so I truly understand them and the people in them. I then get to introduce people into them and watch them all grow.

Both the above can be thankless, painful, political and difficult but it is satisfying in ways I cannot begin to describe (you really have to live it) when it all works.


I love recruitment because I love people and their differences and businesses and their challenges.


I love recruitment because it pays me to be involved with people in one of the most important aspects of their lives, their careers. I get paid (well!) to do what I love. Corny, maybe, conveniently truthful - absolutely...you should never stop loving!

Powerful statement, Robert--

Thanks for sharing...business and people are the crux of the matter, particularly when they compliment each other, otherwise they are at odds.
