Nicoll Curtin leads keynote presentation for Business Analysts
Nicoll Curtin, a leading IT recruitment agency, was delighted to deliver a presentation to The Institute of
International Business Analyst (IIBA) members on ‘Recruitment from a Consultant’s
At the event, Lawrence Hargreaves, MD of Nicoll Curtin, was a keynote speaker and
panel member. The presentation for IIBA members included much useful information
that attendees were able to take away with them, such as tips, tricks and techniques
from both hiring managers and recruitment professionals.
Much of the content discussed at the presentation documented the results of an
independent study commissioned by Nicoll Curtin. Both the study and the presentation
were aimed at hiring managers and prospective candidates. Those that took part all
had an interest in learning about the experiences of recruitment from a Business
Analyst perspective and also included information on the various expectations and
perceptions of recruitment. The results of the survey are to be published and
distributed in early 2012.
Lawrence Hargreaves, Managing Director of Nicoll Curtin, said: “The overall crux of
the presentation was to dispel the myth that recruitment consultants are just a
necessary evil. Good recruitment consultants offer candidates exceptional
opportunities and can enhance careers and increase earning potential.
“What is fundamentally critical to the success of using an agency is building a
two-way dialogue and challenging your agency – advice that applies to both
candidates and employers."
Hargreaves also explained that he believes Nicoll Curtin’s method of creating
partnerships between itself and its clients and candidates is the way forward within
the industry, and that hiring managers should look on recruitment consultancies as a
helping hand in searching for the right employees for their companies.
