I am a recruiter, but I’m not a Jack of all trades recruiter. Please don’t be offended if I can’t help you in certain fields.

I work in recruitment, I have done for some time now. In the past year, I have freelanced in recruitment and from August last year, I set up my own recruitment agency specialising in fields that I have worked in over the past 8 years and know well; social media and digital marketing.

The funny thing is, when you say you work in recruitment, whether that’s to family, friends, people down the pub or just about anyone, people generally assume that means all types of recruitment. Even if you shout if from the rooftops that you specialise in a field, they’ll ignore that and think you can recruit for anyone and everyone. Earlier today, I got a text from a friend who’s mum is looking for a new job. Tired of the same ritual at her current position in a bank, she’s looking for a new job in either retail or something that she can really get her teeth into, so she thought of me, why not, that’s what I do, don’t I? Recruit people for companies and agencies, so why not help her mum find a new job, because she’s been there 9 years and she thought of me.

See, I’d love to help, by Joe, I really would love to help, but it’s not my forte, specialising in a field, that I once worked in many many moons ago and something I can’t take my time away from what I actually do work in. Us recruiters all specialise in a certain field. There are some of us, who have the experience to work across multiple arenas due to the experience they’ve gained over a number of years, but most of the time, you’ll find agencies will actually do this and have specialist teams who recruit across different roles, fields, titles and so on.

When I started up my agency, my mum got super-excited when I showed her my business cards (saying that, she’s kept every single one since I first stepped foot in the industry all of 8 years ago) and happily shared them to her colleagues, her clients (she’s a hairdresser) and pretty much anyone who asks her how her girls are getting on. My whole family have a few each, just in case, someone they’ll probably never meet, will be looking for a new job in the field. But neglects to mention, the two most important aspects of my agency – social and digital. Granted, she knows little of this industry. Actually, nothing about it. She knows what Facebook is, has heard of Twitter, thinks LinkedIn is a word I made up and Google+ is something to do with something with Google, because it has the word Google in it. Apart from that, she’s a little oblivious to the whole understanding of what it is that I actually do. But that’s the same as my last role, before doing this, Community Management – she thought I just mucked around on Facebook all day- saying that, majority of my friends thought I did that too! Thanks guys!

Back to my original point. I would love to help everyone. I’m a helpful person and do try to help as much as I can, but sometimes there are things I can’t help people with, and this includes certain areas of recruitment. If I had more time in the day, had a small army to take on other industries on top of the ones we work with, then yes, by all means, I would love to help, but I don’t. I understand your frustration, because all you see is the word *recruiter* but I can’t help anymore than what it is I do best.

Thanks for thinking of me, I will try and help find the right person to help you or recommend you to someone who can try and help to. Just don’t hate some of us because we can’t help. It’s nothing personal, just we’re not qualified in that area, but we’ll try our almighty best to find someone who can help you.

Hello, hello. So, if anyone knows me, they would know that I recently started up a social media consultancy helping recruitment agencies and small businesses find their voice online, communicate with their audience and increase traffic to their website and business.

Just to get the intro’s going, I thought what better way than pinging this across a little more about what my social media consultancy is and how it may in fact help you.
