​Global networked agency. Nice.

Senior Account Director. Ok, great.

Client has briefed 5 other recruiters and it’s been advertised on social media for the past year. Oh.

It’s an open position that’s been vacant for 6 months and they can’t confirm specific details or allow you to talk to line. I see...

They have sign off ‘in principle’ but would need to be ‘formally’ signed off upon identifying the right candidate. Forget it.

- How many recruiters are being fed briefs from clients that resemble this?

- Should you honestly be expected to work on a role like this?

Remember you have the ability to say ‘no’. In this market your time is precious. Focus your time and attention on clients and candidates that you can genuinely help and that treat you with the respect you deserve.

Our clients and candidates demand respect, why shouldn’t you?
