Monday Morning Memo: UK Back Door Hires With Luke Menzies

UK Back Door Hires

For this podcast, Wilson Cole, President of Adams, Evens, & Ross (AER), Samantha Cole, in-house counsel for AER, and Luke Menzies, UK solicitor, discuss back door hires. It turns out that back door hires in the UK occur in about the same manner as they do in the US. A recruiting agency introduces a candidate, client company says they’re not interested and then goes quiet, and turns out a few month later that the client company hired the candidate in secret so the recruiting agency would know nothing about it (or that they are owed a fee).
