Do you insult or consult?
Consultancy… Is it a business practice or a buzzword that’s lost its meaning?
Consulting is often advocated in recruitment and business chitter chatter on LinkedIn – but how does it really add value?
Can a consultant be different to any recruiter when all a client is prepared to offer is an out-of-date job description and fixed salary bracket?
We see consulting as a two-way discourse.
It’s when a recruiter is emboldened to say ‘no’ and manage client expectations. It’s when a recruiter can offer expertise that’s actually taken into consideration.
It’s a constructive partnership – not a wild goose chase between six agencies each trying to convince a client that they have a ‘perfect’ candidate.
Usually, its application comes down to whether a hiring strategy is skills driven or people driven.
What does consulting mean to you? Can it work on every role…, or only certain positions?
