Hey, recruiters! We’re sure that you are lovely, but we’d rather not hear from you unless we call first. We get dozens of cold calls, unsolicited emails and social media requests from recruiters every week – all of whom claim to have the perfect candidate. Sorry – we don’t have the resource to filter that much incoming sales activity and would rather deal with applicants directly. No contact please.
