I was having a one to one with a member of my business network this week and we were talking about how hard it is to find good candidates. We were also talking about how costly it is to find really skilled people to work in our businesses. The candidates that I source for my clients need to be skilled experienced people with proven ability in their professional careers. They need to be people that can immediately add value to my clients businesses.
Our candidates report a very positive candidate experience when dealing with us here at Better People Ltd- from the first time we speak to them, through their in depth interview, the evaluation of skills and experience and the ongoing communication up to point of placement.
Our enlightened open and informed attitudes ensure that we exceed expectations in relation to confidentiality diversity discrimination and eligibility to work.
As a job seeker, your Curriculum Vitae (CV) is one of the most important tools to enable you to get job interviews and secure the job you want.
Whatever your reason for seeking a new job, investing time creating and preparing a great CV is extremely important. Recruiters, in an organisation or an agency, have many CVs to sift through. Your CV needs to show you in the best light and be straight-forward and easy to read.
All of us have heard of the term ‘work-life balance’. However, not many of us actually have it or appreciate the real need for it. How many of us really sit down and think about how to achieve work-life balance? What does the term actually ‘work-life balance’ mean? And why isn’t it ‘life-work balance’? After all, our life as a whole is surely more significant than our work, which is only one component of it — something that we tend to forget once dragged into the rat race.
Employers Preparing to Interview
How are you feeling about interviewing ? Confident prepared and relaxed? Do you know exactly what you are looking to achieve from the interview process, exactly what do you want to know about the people you are interviewing? Are you confident that you are able to control each interview and ask the same questions of each candidate?
Do you know how to find out that they really do have the level of skills and experience you are looking for?
So you have decided to grow your team to meet growing business demand. How can you keep the time spent on your recruitment campaign to a minimum whilst still making sure that you get the right person for your business?
It is worth planning your recruitment campaign carefully. You might decide that you would like to handle it yourself or you may like to consider working with a professional recruiter.

Adding a new member to your staff is a complicated business. It can revitalize your team and drive it to success or demoralize it beyond repair.

I was having a one to one with a member of my business network this week and we were talking about how hard it is to find good candidates. The candidates that I looking for are skilled experienced people with proven ability in their professional careers. We talked about the price of taking on good professionals and how it seems to be a real sticking point for growing businesses “ I need the extra skills and expertise but we can’t afford a full time person” is something I keep hearing at the moment.
