Over the years we have dealt with hundreds of companies looking to recruit and our experiences have taught us many things. Recruiting the right person for your business can be a difficult and volatile exercise so we have created a guideline to help you assist us in finding the right calibre of candidate.
Get sign off
Ensure that you have the go-ahead to recruit and have examined all possible internal candidates before engaging our services. This will avoid issues with red tape later in the process that can damage your credibility and a candidate’s commitment.
Prepare a role brief
Provide us with a detailed job description, as most candidates will request this and it will present a professional image of your company. This will help people prepare for interview and also help us generate more interest when briefing possible / target candidates.
Establish a timetable
Talk to us about timescales, when you are available for interview and when you need the position filled by. Candidates will need a few days notice to make themselves available and if they know when to expect feedback this will help us maintain their interest. A structured process is always more easy to work with. The longer a candidate waits for an update the colder they get.
Agree fees with us upfront to ensure both parties know what terms they are dealing with. This will avoid the unnecessary complication of seeing a candidate that is suitable and then not being happy with our fee.
Sell the opportunity
And remember, the best candidates will have more than one opportunity to choose from, therefore to ensure that yours is their favoured role lets make sure the process runs as smooth as possible and leaves a great impression of your business.
