The “UK Recruiter” Discussion Forum
â€œLouise is an outstanding individual who has been one of the leading lights in the recruitment and HR industries for many years. She has led UK Recruiter to its pre-eminent position as The information source for all agency recruiters and increasingly for the corporate recruiter. Her early adoption of forum technologies opened the gates for frank and honest debate amongst all parties in the industry. She has now grasped the thorny nettle of blog writing with aplomb.
