A polite note to recruitment agents...

We're flattered that you'd like to work with us, however we have a preferred suppliers list of several agencies we've built up long-standing relationships with. There are lots of you and only a small number of us, so with this in mind, we politely ask that you avoid making approaches to our HR team or managers across the business. Thank you
