APSCo CEO Ann Swain's eagerly awaited 'recruiters bible' available to buy and download
The second edition of the 'Professional Recruiter's Handbook' by Ann Swain, Chief Executive of the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), and Jane Newell Brown, is now available in print and online. The book, dubbed the 'recruiters bible', explores the practical techniques used by successful recruiters - both agency and client-side - and offers 'how-to' advice supported by numerous case studies & interviews with recruitment professionals.
With a career in recruitment - both as a recruiter and trainer - spanning 30 years', and a first book behind her which continues to be among the biggest selling recruitment handbooks across the globe, Swain is well placed to offer an updated guide to staffing agencies and their consultants in a rapidly changing marketplace.
• The development of the recruitment industry
• The successful recruiter
• Developing a business strategy
• Client acquisition
• Candidate attraction
The book has already received excellent reviews by the staffing sector with many viewing it as a 'must have' guide for consultants of all levels, and companies of all sizes. Mark Bull, CEO of Randstad says: "Good to see this handbook going into second edition. Although recruitment looks easy from the outside it most definitely isn't. Yet if you follow all the advice in the guide and work really hard you will succeed. A must read for 'new starters' and 'old hands' in the industry". Russell Clements, CEO of SThree commented: "I can think of very few people better qualified to write about the recruitment industry."
Commenting on the book, Swain says: "I'm really pleased to have the opportunity to complement the first edition of this book, it's testament to the value it has provided to staffing agencies across the globe. Many companies have adopted the first handbook as their in-house training manual and not just for new employees, but also as a refresher guide for more established members of staff. I expect this book to do just the same."
'The Professional Recruiter's Handbook' costs £21.99 and is available from major retailers across the UK and US, including Amazon. It can also be bought via Amazon Kindle.
