Last week we saw the city brought to its knees by the pandemonium caused by those really considerate people over at the RMT who orchestrated and executed yet another 48 hour strike on the London Underground. In fact, we head in to this bank holiday weekend already braced for a further three days of travel scheduled for next week. If you’re like me and you live out west you may as well set off to work now. The fact is, we need our transport system in order to function. We take it for granted and only really appreciate it when it’s not there.  We would probably get by for some time without it, but London, the financial capital of the world, would soon become a financial mess of poorly performing businesses as working hours plummet, stress increases and people eventually mass-migrate to somewhere else.

The same can be said for the recruitment business. The fact is we need it. Across all sectors, though I will bias this towards finance as that is the area in which I recruit. Like the underground, we move people. A lot of people. We move them to their desired destination. We move them from the place they don’t want to be at to the place they do. We move accountants, tax accountants, financial accountants, management accountants, fund accountants, financial analysts, finance directors, financial controllers, financial modellers, auditors, investment bankers, hedge fund managers, risk analysts and CFO’s. We are the invisible underground train of the financial sphere labouring behind the scenes to get you your next position. Without us there would still be jobs and candidates but the financial landscape of the City would eventually change as the professional gene pool of talent stagnates.

Let’s be honest, recruitment as a profession is viewed as an industry of arrogant sales people who charge a lot of money and do little work. This is a myth I must dispel. We are the driving force behind career progression. Your career progression…….and the chances are, we probably moved you!
