We’ve got this Manawatu. There is support and assistance available to your businesses, which we have detailed in our links below.
We also have skilled contractors and temporary staff ready to assist with everything from ensuring your business can operate from home, to providing advice on health and safety to prepare for when your team return to the workplace.
If you need some specialist staff, get in touch for a confidential chat.
Without explanation, your top applicant for your job suddenly disappears. No communication, no explanation. You have been ghosted. Ghosting from job seekers is happening right now in the recruiting world. We explain what this means, why it is happening and how you can best avoid being ghosted.
Similar to a builder with a hammer and measuring tape, recruiters have a number of useful tools to assist us in identifying the best person for the job.
These tools complement our recruitment processes (screening, interviewing and reference checking) and provide assurance and validation to our Clients of an individual’s suitability for the job, their company and existing team.
Recruiters and employers cast their eyes across a multitude of CVs every day, so they know what to look for. Your CV needs to be short, sharp and to the point otherwise your application may be discarded.
Our local CV Expert Jo Hazlitt from CV Edge says CV’s need to be targeted to the job you are applying for and easy to read. “Your CV is often an employer's first impression of you, make it your best one.”
Many common CV errors are easy to fix. Jo shares her advice on how to set your CV up for success.
Employment in the Manawatu is moving at speed, with Clients needing timely staffing solutions to meet their growing business needs and goals.
I have found this to be true for both permanent and temporary staffing, with demand for quality workers across a wide range of industries. To meet an immediate need temporary staff can be engaged for short or long-term assignments.
There are currently more jobs than skilled staff to fill roles. Retaining your employees is critical for business success in keeping not only their skills and abilities, but their experience and knowledge of your business systems, history and needs.
The current job market is tight, job loyalty is high and employees are hesitant to make a move. More than ever, businesses need to be savvy and consider all the elements of their business are aligned to attract the best possible person to your team.
When you recruit for a job vacancy, the job seeker is not only looking at your job description, they also want to know about your company and brand. Your business reputation and brand is an important part of this decision making process.
Sara Towers, Talent and Skills Manager at CEDA suggests businesses need to be aware of how they are represented in the market. “Businesses need to understand their reputation and brand and be able to articulate this as part of their approach to attracting talent.”
