recruitment and selection

Attracting the right person for the job is one of the most important things you will ever do in business. Doing this well saves you time and money.


Detailed Job Descriptions and Person Specifications enable you to identify the job requirements and skills, knowledge and experience needed to perform the job.  As well as introducing new employees to their role, a job description acts as an important point of reference when evaluating performance against the required standards.  It gives line managers the guidelines to promote and supervise with maximum effectiveness.


Coupled with a carefully worded and placed advert, attention to this part of the recruitment process will maximise your chances of attracting the right candidate.


However that’s only the first step. To select the right candidate, you need to ensure effective shortlisting and interview processes that give you the insight and assurance required for a confident appointment.
