Guest has operated within the recruitment industry for over 13 years, working for large global recognised recruitment PLC brands, and driving smaller businesses, new regions, and ofﬁces. Always pushing boundaries, Guest is an expert at inspiring change, innovation, and growth. He continues to mentor, coach, and train recruitment consultants at all levels and still actively recruits in his specialist sector. He remains at the cutting edge of the market, ensuring that service delivery is the agenda priority for both client and candidate.
Guest’s advice on how to become successful within your recruiting career differs from the norm, as he dispels the idea that you must obtain a brash and loud persona to gain success within the industry. These ‘salesy’ industry expectations were why Guest, a methodical man, was initially rejected at interview stage to become a recruitment consultant. In this book, he discusses his journey over 13 years from rejection through to Top Billing success by applying a structured, ‘process and procedure’ method. Guest and his mentees have shown that by following this method you can be, consistently, more successful than the most aggressive salesperson in the room.
Guest has specialised in recruiting for commercial, permanent construction staffing across the Midlands for over 13 years while inspiring, motivating, and leading individual mentees and teams to personal and regional growth. Guest’s primary goals are to consistently deliver an exemplary service to both client and candidate, with integrity that ensures repeat business, working ‘with’ rather than ‘for’ both parties. Guest strives for structure, ongoing improvement and growth, continuing to champion strong, ethical recruitment without compromise.
