Recruitment firms court tricky mandates
At recruitment firm ABC Consultants, managing director Shiv Agrawal is in the middle of an unusual search. He's been approached by an upcoming music producer/composer looking to break into the big league. The client wants ABC to hire a marketing head to network with the 'right people' and help him strike lucrative deals. For that, he is willing to offer an annual salary up to 20 lakh as well as 20% of commission on every deal that goes through. The particular assignment is way out of the firm's usual comfort zone, but that hasn't stopped Agrawal from taking it head-on. "It's not easy executing these jobs but that's what makes it great fun as well," he says.
