Biller Rollercoaster | Michael Judkins – From Michael Page to 3Search, Corporate life, building a strong team of recruiters and keeping accountability!

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.
