Just after opinions really....
We started using a new recruitment agency recently and one of our Managers (who is actively recruiting with them) was approached by them on LinkedIn trying to poach her for another of their clients. Also, we've had a resignation from someone else in that team (non-manager) and they've told us that the same agency approached them about their new role (rather than them applying for it).
I know that agencies have to do an element of headhunting to find suitable candidates (especially in the current climate), but to me, contacting staff (and managers) from one of their clients so they can place them elsewhere (and get the vacancy to back-fill) just seems unprofessional and unethical.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Am I overreacting or justified??
Need to know how to approach them about it!
Thanks in advance.
