I’ve been in contractor recruitment for more years than I can remember, so I know all about the importance of client feedback - not just feedback on your candidates but on how your company has delivered too.
The number one requirement for all good recruiters is to have a great network. To be knowledgeable enough to instantly know who fits the bill when a new role comes up - and even better if you’ve worked with them before, so you can vouch for their strengths and be honest about their weaknesses.
In simple terms, contractor sourcing is about finding the right candidate for a role your client needs to fill.
In real terms, a good recruiter has to take into account:
- The extent of the experience required
- The cultural fit
- The duration of the contract
- The size of the team
- How far along the project already is
