Selecting the right staff for your growing business is harder than it looks, and the consequences if you get it wrong, can be expensive and stressful. It costs upwards of £2500 to find, recruit and train a new employee (this increases to £7500 for senior managers). Then a number leave within the first year so the whole process is repeated and costs rise.
Proper preparation is the key to successful recruitment. A well thought out job description and a clear realistic person specification are the essential first steps. Let Morlan Gil help you draft these crucial documents.
Job adverts need careful crafting so that they are legally compliant and attract the best possible candidates. Then there is the selection of the right publications to advertise in.
