In out in out shake it all about…..
I’m coming out of the shadows tonight, perhaps for the final time, to attend the Recruiters Network event. It is a networking event…….for recruiters. Liking neither recruiters nor networking it seems a strange way to spend a Wednesday evening, but it is run and organised by the lovely Louise Triance, so I’ve said I’ll go along.
In fact, I’m not just going along, I’m debating. In a form of tag team wrestling, allegedly without the wrestling but knowing the participants anything might happen. I will be lining up with the gimp mask wearing Yogi bear of a man that is Gary Franklin. Against us will be the Statler and Waldorf of recruitment, Mervyn Dinnen and Gareth Jones.
The title of the debate is “innie or outtie”. Problem is, up until this morning I thought we were discussing belly buttons and all things fluff related. First it turns out I was wrong. Instead we’re going to be debating in-house recruitment versus out-house recruitment (wtf?). AND THEN it turns out I don’t actually have an opinion on this one……
So my friends, dear souls I need your help. I need your views…….make them up, make them as radical as you can, as offensive as you can. One liners or diatribes I’ll take them all. And I’ll try to fit in as many as I can tonight. Complete the following phrase,
“Agency recruitment sucks because……….”
PS. Merv, Gareth…….feel free to join in too…..I know you agree with me really…..
