Recruitment Myths Busted - I need multiple recruiters

Recruitment Myth Two:


This is one of my pet Recruitment Myths. The Myth is that an employer believes they will get the best person for their role faster by using more than one recruitment agency.

This occurs because most recruiters work on a contingency fee - meaning they only get paid if they fill a vacancy! It also means the best recruiter may NOT GET PAID!
