Recruiting Tips

AFR RECRUITING TIPS

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 rates

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.

I would like to use an opportunity to thank for the support that both Tammy and Sarah gave to me throughout the whole interviewing process. They both made me feel confident in myself to go to the interview as tbh if it wasn’t for them I would have struggled a lot more during the whole process ( never been to one before). Tammy Smith was absolutely amazing !!!!!She made me feel comfortable, provided me with all information I needed to succeed!She is also very warm, super friendly and... approachable, very reliable and informative. Honestly, I cannot thank them enough as they are just perfect career match makers!!!!!AFR Consulting/ Tammy Smith - you are a life changer!!!!Thank you very much!!!!read more

Really impressed with AFR Consulting and their speedy effort to find me suitable employment. Tammy and Sarah really had my best interests at heart and the whole experience was much more of personal service than a business transaction as found at other recruitment agencies. I would certainly be using them in the future after trusting them to find me the perfect job.
