    Hi

    Is anyone else noticing recruitments agencies are starting to infiltrate and compromise the job market?

    I run an allied health clinic, we are regularly hiring podiatry and physiotherapy staff.

    Over the past 18 months i have noticed the number of applicant applying to job ads are decreasing while the number of recruiters contacting me telling me they have a number of candidates suitable for the position is on the rise.

    The recruitments agencies are charging anywhere from $6000 - $12,000 for a candidate, with no guarantee the candidate will stay longer then 3 months.

    Anyone else seen a change to the job market?'

    Have you used a recruiter to employ or find a job? I'd love to know why a podiatrist would want to use a recruiter. What s the benefit to them? Can they see the obvious down side! the recruitment fee has to come from somewhere and the business can't absorb it all.

    Cheers

    Steve
