Uh-oh – Vacancy to fill?

I have been in the #recruitment industry for many years. I frequently meet and speak with frustrated #hiring managers and decision makers. In case you are reading this post, chances are – you are one of them or have a vacancy to fill.

Filling vacancies whether full time, contract or replacing an individual that is still a part of the team is a multi-step process.

Firstly, you must answer these crucial questions:

  1. Why are we looking to fill this position?
  2. What does the winner “look like”?

Once you have answered these questions the process begins with:

  • Job description-concise and clear-outlining expectations, necessary education, duties, and so on
  • Advertising-your company website or reputable job sites, for example
  • Interview–always remember the main reasons the candidate was invited to meet with you
  • Business references-ensure you ask questions to ascertain that the candidate’s soft skills, technical skills and social skills are a fit
  • Job Offer-make sure it’s attractive. Would it attract you?

The life cycle of a successful hire requires an appropriate strategy and offers a clear outcome. These steps will yield successful results!
