UK reseller Action Computer Supplies is actively poaching staff from its old rival Info’Products through a Web-site for ex and current staff. Action is taking advantage of the Unofficial Ex-Info’Products Staff Resource Site, set up by Simon Michie - who is a former Info’Products employee - as a handy resource for recruiting new staff. The site has a job vacancies section, where Action is advertising for account managers in London, the Midlands and the North West. Action approached Michie about placing an advert last month. They are not being charged for the service. The London–based mail order reseller wants to expand its sales force, which already includes ex-Info’Products staff Gill Rick, Charlotte Beal and Ian Camino, by reaching out to existing and former Info’Products staff. Duncan Wilkes, Action chief operating officer, confirmed the company had picked up some ex-Info’Products staff over the last couple of weeks. He said: "When Compel bought Info’Products we had some job vacancies." He added that he thought the Web site was a good way of recruiting staff. Michie, who set up the site as a way of keeping in contact with his old workmates, has had several companies interested in the job vacancies section. He said: "I’ve been approached by quite a few recruitment consultants to advertise there, but at the moment I don’t want to liquidate the site too much." Other companies using the section include Cambridge-based Metaweb and Computeraid Services. ®
