Personal:I used to use headhunters when I was an Exec Director with Rentokil, but was never really impressed, so when I had the chance to see if it was really so difficult (or it needed take so long!), I jumped in head first. Now been doing it for almost 8 years and enjoy it thoroughly. I still wonder why it used to take other headhunters so long. Perhaps I was just unlucky in who I used?.....
Professional:After careers in engineering, publishing, and the B2B service sector, I grew up and became a headhunter. Before headhunting I worked my way from the production line to sales, marketing, and senior international and profit responsible roles. I can even find my way round a balance sheet, so can have a conversation with a Finance Director without getting too embarrassed. I'm a generalist, so don't stick to one sector (where I could recycle the same old faces). I don't think the skill's in finding candidates as much as motivating and engaging them in a recruitment process they find testing but still enjoyable.
