Monday: clients and candidates
I start my week by calling a couple of clients to check how their new employees, who started last week, are settling in. I later obtain feedback from interviews that took place in the morning for a recruitment officer within a London law firm; I speak with all the candidates and call my client to discuss in detail. It’s important for me to get feedback as soon as possible as employers need to move quickly in order to secure top quality talent in the current market. In this case two of my candidates were successful and I arranged second interviews for them for next week.
Late afternoon I speak with an HR manager who I placed last month and is now looking to recruit an HR advisor within her new team. Firstly I take a brief of what skills and experience she’s looking for and then arrange a meeting to discuss the role in more detail. Following the call I start to shortlist relevant candidates so that I can present a selection of CVs to her in the meeting.
