Finding, recruiting and retaining top talent is essential for any successful business, but it can be a challenge for SMEs due to time, financial constraints and lack of resources. According to ACAS, the cost of replacing an employee is around £30,000 taking into account recruiting, inducting and training!
Brexit is already having a negative impact on some of our clients who recruit from overseas, even though EU citizens who are already in the UK will be able to apply for ‘settled status’. We eagerly await the New Immigration Bill expected in 2019.
The recruitment process isn’t one way! It’s an opportunity for you, as an employer, to showcase your organisation and make people WANT to work for you. Candidate experience is an important factor when considering how you will go about recruiting
What we can do to help
We will take the time to understand your business, the role and the type of person you’re looking for in order to fill your vacancy. From there we will work with you to create a job description and person specification so that the recruitment process remains focused on the key skills and experience required, remaining legally compliant throughout.
We use various approaches to advertising including our own website social media threads, jobs boards and publications. The chosen method very much depends on the role, location and level of seniority.
Depending on the role and seniority, available selection methods can include telephone / video interviews, face to face interviews, ability and psychometric testing and assessment centres.
It doesn’t stop there
We will work with you, your managers and your new recruits to put an effective onboarding and induction plan in place to ensure success.
