Recruitment Services

Finding and retaining the right people is essential for the success of your business. Unfortunately, the recruitment process is littered with pitfalls for the unwary employer. Replacing staff who have moved on, or recruiting in a growing business takes time and money.

What should a Recruitment Process entail?

Getting the wrong person for the job or failing to follow the correct procedure can be even more costly. You can rely on our HR experts to guide you safely though the recruitment process; from placing a job advertisement through to making the successful candidate an offer including:

  • Writing job descriptions and person specifications
  • Screening CV and applications for short listing
  • Designing competency-based interview questions
  • Conducting telephone and face-to-face interviews

Our experts help steer you through the legal minefield. For example, even asking questions about a candidate's health or family situation as part of an interview process could result in a discrimination claim.

We will work closely with you to provide the level of support that is right for your business. As with all legal and HR matters, it pays to be prepared and always tread a cautious path. In addition to providing ad-hoc advice and support when you need, we make sure all your documents are compliant, from contracts of employment and directors' service agreements, to offer letters and references.

We can also help to review applications, shortlist candidates and even assist with interviews as needed. Our guidance and support is intended to ensure you can focus on selecting the best candidate for your business.
