In this conversation, our Tactical Tuesday expert Vivien is here to discuss a situation agency recruiters will likely know well: the challenges that can arise when working with internal recruiters. Maybe your relationship with the hiring manager is good —but then the internal recruiter, for whatever reason, is resistant. What do you do? How do you make this relationship more harmonious? Vivien provides a solution to this conflict by suggesting that all three parties (agency recruiter, internal recruiter, and hiring manager) have a conversation to address any hidden forces and set clear expectations. She emphasizes the importance of building a partnership and addressing the fears and concerns of internal recruiters. As per usual, this conversation is ripe with practical takeaways — agency recruiters, don’t skip this one!
