Small business recruitment tips

When you are a small business, the loss of an employee can have a huge impact to your business operation.  As the business owner you will have other priorities in your day, but as this Linkedin article suggests, to do it properly you need to set aside a bit of time to consider your recruitment needs, and devise a suitable strategy.

Your strategy should consider the following:

·        - What do you really need?

·        - Focus on skills and attributes required for the role

·       - How are candidates likely to perceive your job and business?

·        -Structure an ad to highlight the key points

·        -Your business brand and reputation

·        -Communication timelines

The team at PN Personnel take the time to devise a strategy and timeline for every new vacancy. Regardless of how well we know our Client, we will take a detailed brief, from this we will write a compelling job advert to market the vacancy through the most appropriate channels, including our website.  As Recruitment Specialists we can assist with understanding the opportunities and limitations of the scope of the vacancy.

Having a third party insight into your business we can provide advice on your business brand, how best to attract the person and skills you need.  We can sell your role in a way that showcases your business and your opportunity. We pride ourselves on our own reputation which places us ahead of the rest in attracting suitable applicants.

Follow up and communication are critical to your recruitment, not only specific to the recruitment of the current vacancy but your overall business.  A lack of communication can detract from your business credibility.

This all takes time, so why not engage PN Personnel to assist you.  We will get to know your business if we don’t already, advise on the best advertising and recruitment strategy to take, set realistic timelines, manage all the applications and will minimise risk by completing a full due diligence process on each candidate shortlisted.

Our brand is established to attract a high calibre of applicants, and we attract not only locally but nationally and globally. 

Recruitment is our priority, so it doesn’t have to be yours.  We free up your time to get on with your business, and devote our time to sourcing the person you need, when you need it.
