    What's Happened to Special Agent?

    I went to have a look at their website today to see if there were any interesting looking jobs, only to be redirected to Randstad Education. No section for IT based jobs that I can see, you just have to wade through all the support jobs (The keyword search wasn't that brilliant either).

    Moved to general chat as we did say that the jobs forum was to be just for the actual jobs. Something was going to be done about it, any idea what?

    Perhaps we should have an "Employment" (or some such) forum, then "Vacancies" can become a sub-forum, thus keeping all job related discussions in the same area.

    I wonder how much help Axe would have recieved had his thread been in a general chat area as opposed to a specialized discussion area.

    In the mean time, perhaps that thread should also be moved along with all the ones regarding interview questions etc.

    Yes, you are right, and AFAIK the admins are discussing that very thing - but I don't know when we will get an answer. I am expecting something soon, so I was going to leave everything as it is for now and then....I didn't

    Out of interest are there any other recruitment companies that specialize in education like Special Agent/Randstad?

    where is special agent?

    Hi everyone, I didn't loose my job I left to start my own company, special agent was originally bought in 2006 but the company that bought it was bought again at the tail end of 2008 and they have been amalgamated with another company in the group and rebranded as Randstad Education in January

    It seemed the right time for me to move on and take a different approach to work

    So anyway thanks for your kind words ian and russ, anyone interested can see my profile at Will_Townsend, get in touch

    Cheers
