Recruiting or Thinking About it?

As unemployment figures hit a record low, we are all competing for great candidates.

Here are a few tips to help you when you are planning your next recruitment campaign.

What can you afford to pay?

Have you researched the salaries being paid for equivalent roles in your area?
Go on to job sites and put your job title, salary and postcode into the search and see what jobs come up for that salary.
 

What else can You offer to make your job stand out?

  • A day off for your birthday
  • Free Parking
  • Free study package
  • Discounts
  • Private Health Care
  • Employee benefit schemes
  • Bonus or Profit Share
  • Community-based charity or volunteer projects

Other Considerations

  • What will their holiday entitlement be?
  • Can you offer more than your competitors?
  • Do you have a desk for them? A computer? A phone? A car? Uniform? Tools?
  • Anything else they need to have to do their job? Or that everyone else in the team has?
  • Do you have a fit for purpose CURRENT contract of employment and job description?
    We are not talking about something that you have been using for the last 10 years,
    or that you downloaded from the internet!!
