Recruitment is a profession that can be seen in two specific lights:

Firstly, an insensitive numbers game, where hard-sell and closing the deal is all that matters;

Then there’s the value and benefit that it brings by placing candidates in ideal roles that can be positively life-changing.

During this podcast episode, host Matt Sykes and Angie Atkinson take a look at:

• The ‘darker-side’ of recruitment and some of the reasons why this shouldn’t be the case.
