On this episode I’m joined by Michael Judkins from 3Search.
He initially entered the world of recruitment through Michael Page, and after just over 4 years moved over to the infamous 3Search, where he has been for the last 4 and a half years.
This is a great episode as it’s always incredibly interesting to learn about the differences (and difficulties) that come with moving from a corporate, well known brand to technically a start-up business.
On this episode we talk about leadership, motivations and transitions – and ultimately how Michael has become a successful leader in the 3Search group.
