Of course, the life of a recruiter can make you jaded at times! But also it can almost make you weep with appreciation about how fantastic some people can be. Long story short…a client was looking to recruit an engineer. We had lots of great applications but we also had one from a guy who looked great on paper but who had been at home nursing his dying wife. Now after his wife died, he kinda fell to bits…but he wants to start working again! And, his experience is fantastic. He lacked confidence and interviewed terribly. Our client could see past this thankfully and offered our guy the job…how warming! Let’s hope it all works out for all concerned. Our client said he wanted to give this chap a ‘helping hand’….
