These days, I am rarely surprised by anything that goes on in the corporate world. Once in a while, though, something comes along that makes me go ‘What the…?!’
A Leadership and Talent specialist with a proven track record, specifically from the South who is looking to relocate to the North West of England. If you are based from Lands End to Middle England (below Birmingham) then we would love to hear from you.
So more or less anywhere in the blue area then, though they don’t mention South Wales.
After I posted this a week or so ago, some people told me that the North-South divide is a myth. Clearly it isn’t as far as these recruiters are concerned.
I would be fascinated to know what their thinking was and why they came to the conclusion that they needed to source this role from southern England.
As ever, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Update: I’m told by the recruiter that they only have a remit to recruit from the south as another firm is doing the north. In which case, I apologise for mis-interpreting this job ad. That said, the fact that so many others have done so too suggests that it could, perhaps, have been worded a bit differently.
