    Here a recruiter only works with direct hire positions. An employment agency works in the way you are describing.

    Here (Denmark) we have agencies that specialize in finding people (usually adverts in newspapers but they sometimes "head hunt") for jobs but as good as always for well paid jobs. I don't think I've ever seen one of those agencies look for machinists or similar.

    One of the jobs I've had was through an agency and they did the interviews. It was for a good company I went to and I enjoyed my time there. Another time I was head hunted, offered the job, but said "No thanks".

    These agencies are hired by and payed by the company looking for employees.

    As I've already written jobs here for machinists are either advertised in newspapers or at job centers. Going back to the beginning of this thread then if any company here was looking for 50 machinists it'd make the TV news

    Bit OT but I know of several German machinists that drive to Denmark and back from Germany every day. Wages are higher here. To understand that then look at the border between Denmark and Germany. Same with Swedes working in Denmark is probably more common than vice versa.
