Guest Winners and Losers

I am a HR Exec and am currently being inudated with calls from recruitment agencies - daily. OK, nothing new per se, but I do sense an increasing feeling of desperation in them trying to find work for people. May not mean anything, but they are saying it is getting harder.

What is the line of business, if its health related then that comes as no suprise.

Looking at last nights question time, Labour are now making no secret that the cutbacks in NHS overspends will come in the form of hospital closures, and front line staff. They intend to keep the bean counting spongers who report to central government as they see them as their handle on the inside.

Funnily enough it is health related not-for-profit, but not NHS. Scary times ahead in the health sector. I spent 3 years working in NHS equivalent in Oz - and they worry about their waiting lists!! It's nothing compared to here. I think I'm going to try and get a Uni job, faculty of medicine or such! :)

Little update

A total of 8 calls just today - and we are not a huge organisation.

"We have a fantastic blah, blah, just registered with us - do you have any vacancies"

No need to go to them anymore, they come to you.

Call number 9 just in - as above.

A local job agency send in a huge box of creme eggs for easter to our office. Smacked of desperation to me at the time.

My employer is not recruiting except in exceptional circumstances. Moreso, they will NOT use agencies in order to save money.

That is what I have been telling the agencies - WE DON'T USE AGENCIES! We are a charity FFS. Another favourite line they like to trot out is that 'this candidate has expressed an interest in working for an organisation like yours'. My response, tell them to look on our website for vacancies then. Duh!! Mind you, I wasn't complaining when the strapping young lad from Office Angels brought me 4 donuts and an easter egg 'angel'. I spent another hour convincing two poor agency hacks of the impending HPC - one of them keeps emailing me to ask me if he should buy :unsure: (don't tell Shaker, he very jealous :rolleyes: ).
