Contrary to popular belief, this is one of the best ways to resist headhunters pursuing your recruiters, by showing just how important they are to your company, and by enabling to do their job better.
Guess what? Every single active recruiter in the UK is listed on LinkedIn.
That may not come as a surprise to anyone, as Recruiters are professional networkers, and LinkedIn is the biggest free CV database. By definition, it is the job of a professional recruiter to market themselves to their chosen industry sector, clients and candidates. It is vital that they spread the word of their own expertise in order to win and retain new business, and attract candidates. Good recruiters can therefore become well known, and even minor celebrities in their own fields.
