Whether you’re hiring a junior to support your team or a senior manager to help steer the ship, finding the right person for the job is no simple task.
Research shows the average cost of making a hiring mistake can sit anywhere between 15-21% of that employee’s salary, so if the candidate you hire doesn’t have the right attitude, skills or isn’t in it for the long haul, the cost of this decision can quickly add up.
That’s where People in Focus can help. With a recruitment team that has 30+ years of combined HR experience, we understand what’s required when it comes to hiring well and finding the right talent for the unique needs of almost any company.
So, how do we do it?
Keep reading to find out what our end-to-end recruitment process involves and how we can help you find your next reliable hire.
Step 1: Understanding the role
Up front, we learn as much as we can about your company and the role you want to fill. Transparency is crucial here. We’re not here to judge your company; we’re here to help you add to it. The more we know, the better equipped we are to find candidates who are not only suited to the role but the working environment, too.
Step 2: Sourcing talent
To appeal to top talent your job ad needs to stand out but this is easier said than done, especially in a competitive job market.
Drawing on our experience, we can write job ads that generate interest and excitement about your available role and company.
Writing the job ad is one thing but circulating the opening so the right candidates get to see it is one of the most important (and time-consuming) parts of the recruiting process.
The days of sticking a job ad up on Seek and watching flocks of quality candidates roll in are sadly no more. In fact, late last year we shared that 72% of roles we've advertised in the past year have been filled by candidates not actively looking for a new role.
That’s why we use a range of methods to identify top talent during our end-to-end recruitment process. We search far and wide to identify quality candidates for your job opening, including:
Adding your job ad to the job page on our website
Sharing your job ad to our social media channels and mailing list
Strategically contacting our extensive database of candidates - some of whom are actively looking for a new role but many who aren’t
