We recognise that when it comes to recruitment, a ‘one size fits all’ approach simply doesn’t work. That’s why we offer a range of different permanent recruitment options, depending on the level of work that you want us to take off your hands.
Time invested before the recruitment process begins can save many ‘dead ends’. We can help you from the word go.
If the role you’re filling is popular, you could receive dozens of CVs. Do you have the time to review them all?
It’s unusual for a job to be offered on the back of just one interview. Let us take care of the early stages for you.
Type of person for the job
This depends on the company but also the type of role, and who the new recruit will be working for. Don’t put an ‘ideas’ person into a monotonous role.
We’ll help you work out and document, which skills are essential, and which are desirable before we start looking.
We’ll want to get to know you better, to ensure that we match the shortlisted candidates to the culture of your organisation.
Is it worth an ad in the local press or a trade journal? Which are the best internet job sites to use? We know where to go.
Do most people look for work during the week? Evenings? Weekends?Which are the peak days for job hunting?
You need to sell your vacancy to attract the best people. The ad must look professional and the job appealing. Experience counts here.
An apparently innocent comment in a job ad – how many years’ experience, for example could spell trouble. We’ll make sure any ads
Key criteria defined
To be sure of finding the right person for the job, it makes sense to work out exactly what you’re looking for in advance.
All people involved are aware of the details
Different people respond to others in different ways. That’s fine, but you also need a shared, rational basis for any assessment.
Right to work in UK
You need to be sure that anyone you take on is legally entitled to work in this country. With dh Recruitment, you can make your selection with total confidence.
Data protection and discrimination
We’ll help you make sure everything you do is legal.
Recruitment can be more expensive than you think
According to the CIPD, when a company directly recruits even a basic level employee, the average cost is more than £2,000.
This analysis includes both direct and indirect costs, such as:
• Advertising costs
• Time spent preparing job details, writing adverts, reviewing applications etc
• Liaising with newspapers, job boards, the Job Centre
• Conducting interviews, competence checks, taking up references etc
• Possible repeat of process if you don’t find the right person first time round
Almost all of this can be done for you by a good recruitment partner.
