Ethical Recruiting the Glen Callum Way!

Why do some recruiters approach candidates they have previously placed and been paid for?

We are asked this question often by clients and our proud response is “We guarantee that is not our approach!  We do not actively contact any of our current clients’ staff and we do not solicit candidates we have placed unless they have approached us directly requesting a move”.

Why do some recruiters send a batch of CV’s to employers without having spoken to the candidates or without having been instructed by the employer to work on the role?

Our view on this is two fold…”the recruiters that do this are acting unethically towards their candidates by sending out their CV details without checking their interest, gaining their permission or even assessing their suitability for the role.  Likewise they are also acting unethically by creating “a race” between recruiters. An unfair position for an ethical recruiter who has obtained their candidates permission, spent time briefing the candidate only to find an unscrupulous recruiter has just gathered CV’s, pressed the send button and thus beaten them to it!  Hopefully employers who advocate this practise will understand over time that selecting unscreened candidates could very well be a time consuming and costly exercise.  Continue reading full article
