The world of recruitment can be complex, with a range of best practices and etiquette to follow. Getting each step in the process right – from job description to interviews – can make the difference between a successful hire and recruitment frustration. Or worse, the wrong choice for your business.
However, if you want to refine your search and avoid recruitment faux pas, our expert team can help. With 30 years of experience across a range of industries, we provide a full consultancy service to help you throughout the recruitment process to ensure you find the right candidate.
The first step of the recruitment process – defining and writing a job description and person specification – is perhaps the most important. These documents will act as a foundation for any recruitment campaigns, so it’s essential to get them right. Otherwise, once you have posted your recruitment advert, you might receive a lack of interest or a crop of candidates who don’t quite have that special “something”.
Firstly, you should ensure that your internal team has agreed on what and who you’re looking for. Secondly, it’s important that this is communicated effectively to potential candidates. We can provide advice on how to consolidate these ideas into a clear job description and person specification, we can then create suitable recruitment advertising campaigns and ensure that we portray the correct image of your company to potential candidates.
It’s a common question when recruiting: what salary to offer? Too little and you’ll deter suitable candidates; too much and you’re needlessly increasing expenses. Low salaries across your business can harm the retention of your current staff.
We use our recruitment experience, together with an intimate knowledge of the local jobs market, to provide accurate salary benchmarking and advice for you. With the right salary on offer, you can attract the best talent and keep ahead of your competitors.
Sometimes, your hiring efforts can benefit from an extra boost. That’s where our recruitment campaigns experience come in. Whether you’re looking to fill a specialist role or working on a larger expansion of your business, we can offer a bespoke recruitment service which includes pre-screening by telephone to full campaign management utilising major job boards, specialist websites and linked in.
We have a private room available for interviewing candidates. Privacy is important and we know there are times when the need for a confidential space away from the office is required.
Based in the heart of Exeter, we have been recruiting for businesses across the South West for 30 years. We have a comprehensive understanding of the local jobs market, across a range of industries. So, from salaries to skills shortages, you can be confident in our ability to provide relevant advice about recruiting in the local area.
