HR consultant’s ‘career ending’ at a job site
The headhunter at a company that specializes in helping employers find and hire top talent in the job market has left the company after six years with the company, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The decision came after the company decided to give the job to a person from another company and he left the position a month later, said sources familiar to the matter, who asked not to be identified because the details are confidential.
The job was part of a program that had been in place for the past several years to help top talent with interviews and training.
While the hiring of a person who had already been hired by another company could have been expected, this is not one of those cases, sources said.
A source at the company said the headhunter left the firm last month because he had not been paid for his work and the company is looking for a replacement.
The source did not specify when the job was given to the new hire.
“We are sad to hear of the departure of our headhunter,” the source said.
The source said that while the company was in talks with other job hunting companies for the position, “the timing is not right.”
“We understand that this is an unfortunate time for all of us,” the company source said in a statement.
The hiring of an individual who was hired by a different firm could have created confusion for prospective candidates.
“We are working to resolve this as soon as possible and are hopeful this will not affect the hiring process at the other company,” the statement said.
The company did not say if the job has been terminated.
In February, the Wall Street Journal reported that the headhunting firm, Headhunter International, had a turnover of more than $4 million in 2016, with the majority of the losses coming from an average of $1.6 million.
In that same year, Headhunting International reported an average turnover of $2.3 million.
It is not clear if the loss was due to attrition or to a loss in the company’s revenue.
Headhunters are part of the larger recruitment industry, which employs nearly 1.2 million people.
