Will Smith

Cheeky, charming and insanely cool, Will Smith is a manager’s dream! Not only has he got bags of personality but strong ideals too.

A one-woman powerhouse, Beyoncé is a brand in her own right. She’ll command respect on the phone and own the sales floor. She brings sass to the team. If the lads get too much, we know who’ll put them in their place.

“Hello from the other side…” Anyone who can make a multi-platinum award winning song from a phone call is worth having in the team. We’re not even going to compete with her cold calling skills.

Shia LaBeouf

If you’re ever struggling for motivation, all you need to do is look over to Shia’s desk for a little pick-me-up. Imagine him closing a candidate, “Just do it!!!”

J. K. Rowling

People underestimate how far the skills of a good storyteller go in recruitment. If anyone can spin a tale to inspire candidates, J.K. Rowling’s the one for it. Not only this, she knows what it’s like to deal with rejection. Harry Potter was turned down 12 times by different publishers, she didn’t give up and was rewarded for it.

He’s not pretty but he certainly is versatile. Whether you’ve got him making teas, scrubbing the toilets or putting a shift in on the phones, James Milner is the type of worker every team needs. How could we not want Mr Reliable in our recruiter dream team? Just don’t let him close, he could send the candidate to sleep.

Smithy A.K.A. James Corden

Smithy! He’s everyone’s mate and takes zero crap. From running for Fifa president to training the Manchester United squad, he knows what it takes to succeed. He’s had the backing of Pele, José Mourinho and even received the Coach of the Year Award at Sports Personality of the Year in 2010. Quite possibly the best CV we’ve ever seen.
