I know two really good recruiters who actually enjoy helping people (I knew three, but one quit).
They connected on LinkedIn, regularly give me a call to ask me how I'm doing and what I'm doing (a bit of market research I guess).
We always have a nice chat, they clearly read my LinkedIn page in some detail, and they never offer me a job if I'm not asking for it.
So recently I started my own company and I told them I'd consider employment if the company was really good.
One of those guys actually said that when he heard me talk it would be good to try my own company for a while.
He still sent me an opportunity for the first time since I know him, which is years, because he actually thought the company was really nice for me.
So I went over there to talk and it was a really nice company, but I still decided not to work there.
The other one said he couldn't help me if I didn't want to go back to being employed, but a friend of his could help me with freelance jobs, so he introduced me.
One of them has an event planned for next week which I'll be visiting.
I've talked to the other one about talking at one of his events myself.

If I ever need employees I'd go to them.
The keyword here, which most recruiters seem to lack, is simply personal interest and effort.
In fact, if anyone in the Netherlands is looking for a new job I'd recommend one of these two guys (send me an email if you're interested, I can't openly advertise them on CP Wink | ;) ).
