Partnerships with contractors
and workplace
Making it easy – what has worked
The challenges – what has failed
Knowing our recruitment process
Trying to get in the back door
Knowing the role they are looking to
place a candidate in
Generalising the roles, missing the
mark when it comes to selling it to
the candidate
Being honest
Trying too hard and being overly
optimistic which can create false
expectations
Knowing the profile of the manager
who will be responsible for the
candidate
Thinking that the business culture
breeds only one type of manager
Knowing when to provide support and
respecting the management chain
Over or under support, not
researching clearly who they should
be contacting first

tell everyone the same unvarnished story.
Once you develop a reputation for straight
talk, people will return the favour.

» Admit your mistakes. This gives
everyone around you permission to do the
same.

» Starting with the sales pitch. The
