Business Development Manager at Six & Flow

A quick message to recruiters

As much as we love the recruiters out there, and by gosh I bet you “have some great candidates to send” our way… This one isn’t for you. 

Right now, we want to find our own new addition. It just makes it feel like we’ve really put the effort in… Know what we mean? More fulfilling if you will, if we do it ourselves. It’s not you, it’s us. When and if we do decide to go out to recruiters, we already have several relationships with agencies in place. If you’re not already one of them, then we don’t need you, sorry.
