Key Tips for looking outside of the box and building your brand for recruitment
What You Need to Know - The What
What You Need to Do - The How
Remember from the moment the candidate walks into the room you are responsible for and to them just as you are one of your staff members, hence remember your HR requirements, i.e. discrimination etc.
• Divide the Interview into three parts
• 1-Welcome and introduction
• 2- Ask the candidate to review the last 10 years of their work history with you. You will ask questions as they go and after they finish. When they have finished if you have not already completed your preselected questions then review those.
• 3- General wrap up, give the candidate a chance to ask any questions that they need to. Plus ask any relevant final questions yourself, such as if you were successful, how long before you can start, what is your salary expectation and do you have and leave plans, or medical conditions that would stop you from performing parts or all of the role. At this point it is critical to give the candidate next steps, both for them and your brand. Don’t forget to follow up!
And before you finalise- do proper reference checks!!!!!!
Good recruitment does not stop at the point of the job offer, it goes further, the next critical step is good on boarding;
To bring all of this together and make your business the best that it can be, you need to ensure you have through training and succession plans linked to your job description and roles. This will then help you retain and develop your people past recruitment and into the future.
