My company was looking to hire a junior copywriter, and I was put in charge of scanning the local market to find the winning candidate. A friend of mine mentioned Michael Page, and I decided to give its services a shot. Here’s a summary of my recruitment experience with this company.
Most of Michael Page’s sectors were pretty technical, with industries ranging from oil and gas to banking and finance. Amidst all these fields, I was delighted to see marketing squeezed onto the list. For a company with various different sectors, Michael Page would be a good choice as it offers talent services in sixteen diverse industries. If you’re on the hunt for international talent, this company’s reach stretches around the globe. With offices based everywhere from Switzerland to Latin America, your options certainly won’t be limited by geographical restrictions.
Service and expertise
With offices dotting the globe, Michael Page definitely isn’t lacking in the experience department. The original Page Group, that Michael Page is a part of, was officially launched in 1976. Little did the original team know that their office above a London launderette would soon multiply all over the world. With 40 years of recruitment experience, the company has become an industry leader.
The copywriter my company wanted to hire needed to have the ability to juggle multiple roles. While the position was that of a copywriter, I was requested to find a “rockstar”. Not quite knowing what that role entails, I gave Michael Page a rough idea of the position. While my point of contact was initially a little confused, she didn’t hesitate to take my project on board. I felt the need to apologise for the vagueness of my request, but Michael Page said that with four decades in the industry, it’s seen everything there is to see. I sincerely appreciate it’s flexibility.
Speed of service
The company certainly didn’t procrastinate. Four days after making my request, I was presented with a pool of potential options. It was an absolute delight meeting with the talent Michael Page sourced, each individual highly professional and proficient. I was spoiled for choice with my various options, and ended up hiring the best of the best. My copywriter is as sharp as a razor, and is rapidly reaching rockstar status at the company. I have Michael Page to thank for this!
