What Makes a Bloody Great Recruitment Business?


We’re passionate about recruitment leaders growing their businesses, and we set up our Recruitment Leaders Podcast to get recruitment industry leaders and thought leaders to donate their ideas into the industry.

There’s a lot of change happening in the sector, and being competitive has never been more key to growth – candidates and clients are working more closely together than ever before.

But in our goal to stay afloat are we losing site of the core premise of what, as James Osborne from The Recruitment Network calls, a “bloody great recruitment business”?

Bloody Great Recruitment

Everyone is trying to predict what tomorrow is going to look like, but really, sometimes we lose sight of what we are doing today – the key focus of every recruitment leader.

  • What are the leaders doing who are running a great business?
  • Do great recruiters use CRM?  And should they?
  • What is recruitment 101?
  • What is the coolest tool in recruitment?
  • What are the 3 things that James thinks work well in recruitment?
  • Where do pigs and hens fit into recruitment?
  • How does a recruiter really make an impact?  Or just a sale?
  • What are the 3 things that James thinks recruitment leaders need to STOP doing?
  • How are we devaluing our recruitment businesses?

Listen to James

I loved talking with James. He is clearly proud of the recruitment sector and passionate about injecting this pride into the industry to help it outperform its competition.
