Wild Western theme I see HR as less of a “barkeep” and more of a Sheriff in the relationship because they enforce the rules, sign the contracts and guard the gate to the place where a person can live and work—and do contract work. The frontline Recruiter amounts to a Deputy Sheriff. And the External Recruiter is not simply a “Cowboy” but a Bounty Hunter, because they get paid for finding people--but with a positive focus rather than those that typically would be looking for Dead or Alive searches.
As to your reasons: In #1—external recruiters don’t break the rules if they want to stay in the relationship. Those that do are cut loose.
In #3 external recruiters cannot offer more money. In fact, they cannot offer any money. They can only recommend what compensation would be required to land a candidate.
In #5 HR controls the final offer...if they're smart.
In #6 HR has it’s own recruitment team and therefore are constantly looking to do their own placements in effort to rely less and less on external recruiters.
In #7 HR hates “paperwork” more than external recruiters do--but must maintain it for legal purposes.
In #9 "No" to HR means "HELL NO!" To the smart external recruiter “No” means No.
And for #10 HR and External Recruiters can decide to work together or not work at all.
And Francois--your photo of "Recruiter Six Shooter" is rather insulting. Your critter is not even holding guns much less blazing them. And is that a Pink Cape w/White Gloves? The hat's tilted the wrong way unless of course it's on a cartoon character. Here's a closer resemblance of what an OLD WEST BOUNTY HUNTER would look like...a bit more modernized but it works. Cheers...
ls, courts, libraries. Business is down to a crawl. All my local candidates are snowed in and the airport is closed. My horses are in the barn 15 miles from town. Being a generalist i called a deputy sheriff i helped find a job a few years ago, he is on his way in da big serfs jacked up pickup to feed my horses. There are some benefits to hanging out at McDonald's. HA! :)
