I’m happy to eat my humble pie. Keep up the good work!

I’m an agency recruiter at heart and I’ll admit it, apart from those internal recruiters I got on with, I thought most were failed recruiters. I hold my hands up and I’m able to eat humble pie because, having worked on the other side of the fence for 9 months, I’ve gained a huge insight into how hard and how much credit should go to talent acquisition managers / internal recruiters. It’s been a real…
