Top Recruitment Tips For Recruiters






Show off your assets!

Are you seeking to recruit new employees to fill vacant job roles in your company or organisation? This is no easy process and it pays to know what to do. This is the first of six tips in which we offer advice to set you on the right road to a successful recruitment project.

When looking to recruit to a position within your company, you obviously don't want to be dishonest in any way but what you do want to do is to talk about the advantages you have as an employer. Why would a potential job candidate want to work for you? What would they get out of it as well as being paid? Do you have a mission statement? What do other members of staff say? Anything at all that sets you above your competitors needs to be shouted from the proverbial rooftops.  Ask current job holders what attracts them to the job or to your company and what they would consider a good ‘selling' point.

Little things can and do make a difference. In 2007 a major London company got ahead of its main rival in the recruitment of University graduates simply by making it known that their employees were allowed to download music onto their iPods and MP3 players whilst in the office.  Clearly this message caught the attention of graduates and made them think this was a ‘good employer'.

Any recruitment ads that you place should draw on your strengths as an employer from the point of view of said job candidate. Also it's a great idea to make sure that third party recruiters, consultants and recruitment agencies are taking advantage of these strengths when searching for workers for you. If nothing springs to mind that you do better than a competitor it might be a good time to add something so you can really compete. Often businesses offer a reduced gym membership fee for their employees. This too can be a great advantage in a job hunter choosing to apply for one company over another. No amount of clever advertising or ‘spin' will attract candidates as they'll be able to see that. What they're looking for is what you have to offer them as well as what they have to offer you.

Customising your offer to the type of candidates you want is also important - casual dress will appeal to some people but not others, flexible working to others, time off for charity work yet another set, etc.  Think about the interests and mindset of your ideal candidates and make the necessary changes that will appeal to them - and then tell them about it.
