The recruitment process can be fraught with dangers, and if carried out poorly has the potential to cost a business more than just money. The two main risk areas of recruitment are hiring a candidate who is unsuitable for the available position, and, perhaps more alarming, facing the prospect of a claim from an unhappy candidate who feel they were treated poorly or discriminated against. Unfortunately as the jobs market continues to thrive the potential for these risks are only set to rise. With many industries across the UK clambering to obtain only the very best talent candidates may be more inclined to ‘tweak’ their CV in order to stand out, putting businesses in a precarious position.
Struggling to reach your candidate quota? The issue may lie in your job listing. Crafting the perfect job advert is not easy, you need to have a clear understanding of your target audience in order to engage with them, and in a highly competitive market where the number of vacant positions far outweighs the number of talented candidates, it’s a dog eat dog world out there for recruiters.
Every business has a responsibility to make their recruitment process a positive experience as possible for candidates. However, for whatever reason a number of companies are falling short of candidate expectation and as a result are struggling to maintain a healthy candidate pipeline. At Superlative Recruitment we want every business to be on top of their game when it comes to recruiting, which is why we have shared our top 4 tips on how to rock at recruitment.
