Recruitment

Nothing eats up resources like recruitment.  You need to factor in time for creating job descriptions, sifting through CV’s and cover letters, interviewing potential candidates and choosing the right one.  Even if it’s not you personally doing it, someone from your team will usually be tasked with this taking time away from their day.  Here we have listed some keys to recruitment success.

Outsource to the Experts

If you are looking to employ a senior level of staff, you may want to outsource to an executive search firm.  An executive staffing agency like Tru Path Search know recruitment inside out, so will be able to speed up the process for you. This firm in particular have 15 years in business and have filled more than 16k roles, which shows just how effective they can be. They will sit down with you, get to know your company culture and what you are looking for – and find suitable candidates for the position.  This could save you a lot of time and money in job ads and resources.

Nail your Job Description              

This is what any potential candidates will be looking at before they make their decision whether or not to apply for the position.  A job description should be clear, concise and include any relevant skills and experience that is required for the role.  If you did choose to outsource your recruitment, this is also a good reference point for them when it comes to finding people within their contact sphere that might fit in with your company.

Don’t Spend too Much Time on the CV’s

If you are recruiting in-house – the likelihood you will be inundated with CV’s.  The reality is you need to be ruthless so you don’t spend too much time on it.  Extra points should go to people who have taken the time to personalise a cover letter.  If there is something that you don’t like when looking at a CV – don’t think twice about putting it in the no pile and move on to the next potential candidate. 

Go with your Gut

Someone could have all the skills and experience in the world, but once you get to interview process – it could be that they just don’t fit in with your company culture.  It’s important to go with your instincts when recruiting new staff, someone that fits on paper may not fit in with your team or company dynamic.  If you feel that you have met the right person for the job, you probably have.

Decide who you want to Hire Quickly

Don’t take too long with the decision-making process. It could be that the candidate that you want to take on board has been for several interviews or is being headhunted.  As such, if there is someone you really want – you don’t want to take too much time inviting them to be part of your team.  If they are already snapped up by another company, it will only leave you disappointed. 

If you are looking to recruit a new member of staff – then make sure you follow these keys to success to save you time, money and resources.
