As someone who’s only recently delved into a career in recruitment, learning is key! I’ve listened to some podcasts and signed up to newsletters, all of which have been immensely helpful alongside the training at Confido (thanks Craig!)

So, for this post I wanted to talk about some amazing figures in recruitment who’ve helped me as well as many others understand things like what motivates a candidate, gauging client needs, or even diversifying search methods amongst an array of other things. Check out a few of the podcast episodes I’ve linked for each! 😊
