Advantages Diligent, client list, professional
Disadvantages Losing candidate focus
Michael Page are one of the biggest recruitment agencies in the UK. They have an impressive client list containing most of the top blue-chip organisations and have specialisms including finance, acountancy, retail and business management.
Michael Page retail placed me with a large organisation and got me a great job with a great salary and I thank them for that. But this was 6/7 years ago and I don't know what's changed since but now I feel somewhat let down by them.
More latterly I have sent my CV to them on no less than 17 occasions. On each of these occasions I've received a bland email response telling me that someone will be in touch. I'm guessing that no call means that they've received better CVs. That's fine and understandable, but if I'm good to speak to when there's a fee involved (6/7 years ago) surely I'm worth a quick call to discuss circumstances etc. I've had calls and interviews via other agents that are working on the same vacancies ac Michael Page, so its disappointing that they seem to be overlooking CVs.
I sincerely hope that they can get back to the good old Michael Page of old and wish them luck during the next few months. If they pick up the phone to me then I'll update the review.
