Today I have been trumped with a good client (with a new HR person), who have been sold a dummy.
A Brighton firm who call themselves, amongst other things, a recruitment company – dragged a bunch of CVs from Job-boards and forwarded them straight onto the client.
No assessment, no pre-selection, no confirmation of company details and suitability to the client.
No clarification of availability for interview, and any other special needs.
No contact details, no customer service offering.
No relationship with the client or the candidate.
Just 5 CVs – (4 terrible ones, plus my guy) emailed to the client with a `there you go!`.
The industry uses the term `cowboys` all too often, and often in a misrepresented and uneducated manner. But this is what is commonly know as Recruitment `Cowboys`.
Check out your recruitment agency before you assign, or else it’ll be pistols at dawn over misuse of a candidates CV.
