Diary: OMG's online headhunt

campaignlive.co.uk, Friday, 16 April 2010 12:00AM

Omnicom Media Group's method of poaching staff doesn't score any points for subtlety.

The agency's head of recruitment recently sent a round-robin e-mail to heads of new business at rival shops with the chilling opener: "Hi there. It's been a long while since we last spoke/e-mailed."

The missive goes on to advertise some vacancies in the group.

Diary hears the slightly traumatised recipients had never heard of, not to mention "spoke to/e-mailed", the sender. In future, maybe the OMG recruitment team should try an approach that is less suggestive of a Nigerian bank scam.
