How (not) to win a new client.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Luke Collard Nov 20, 2011. 3 Replies

When I moved to Australia some ten years ago I was a mid 20s, single chap, a bit cocky and as keen to party as I was ambitious to make it big in recruitment. As is typical with most young recruiters,…Continue

"I ask my clients to extend the offer directly to the candidate. It is my take that delivering the good news should come from the new boss. Tone of voice and excitement of a deal coming together between two parties can alleviate a lot of nitpicking…"

"Luke,   I agree with you on this topic and in the right situation it does work. I have had a number of deals happen because the client was better able to "sell" the entire compensation package to the candidate.   Control is nice…"

Two's company, three's a crowd.

“Two’s company, three’s a crowd”….….I was reminded of this saying last week when I found myself playing middle man between a client and candidate who were negotiating a package.We have all been there. Your client phones you to make your candidate an offer. It might be a bit lower than what your candidate…See More

"@Lauren, How much time do you suggest? One month; two months; three or four? @Luke, I would also suggest that when a recruiter is coming up short--does the organization have any obligation to come to the rescue in terms of mentoring; direct…"

"Enough with the sporting analogies;)  If someone is hitting the ball, getting on base, and just hasn't gotten to home plate, give them more time.  I agree that if they have the hill to climb of "no sales", "no…"

Stick or twist - how long should you give an underperformer ?

The recruitment industry is littered with bad and expensive hiring mistakes. Nearly all agencies at some point have hired a consultant that doesn’t work out. Most of us have an example of the experienced consultant who promises the world, talks the talk, and  is always on the verge of a big fee, but month after month has little to show. Or…See More

"Under performer and under performance are two different things.  The latter has the where with all and ability to pull out of a slump like a batter making adjustments to a good pitcher.  The former may have lost the vim and vigor, if they…"

  At the end of last year I attended one of Bill Boorman's recruitment unconferences. The basic concept is an open and unstructured forum where recruiters can discuss and debate topics. The very nature of the set-up attracts some interesting characters including a gentleman called Kevin Wheeler who offered a controversial idea that…

Most CEOs realise the importance of securing the best people in their industry. Having the top talent working for you gives you a huge advantage over your competition.
