As mentioned in our previous article, a good recruitment process ensures that the time you spend screening, shortlisting and interviewing candidates is used effectively – so that you can focus on your business. It also ensures that your search for viable candidates is as efficient as possible.
Does your recruitment process look something like this?
The average time to fill a given position is 42 days – which is six weeks… and then you need to take into account notice periods. It could be two months or more to actually have someone in the role.
If you’re undertaking the recruitment activities yourself, you need to fit them in around your normal work schedule and responsibilities – and ensure that all decision makers are informed. This often means extra work after hours or on weekends to keep up with candidates as they come in.
One option to help with streamlining your recruitment process is an Applicant Tracking System, but these take time to set up correctly, and do come with an added and on-going cost which may not be needed in a small business who do not need to hire often.
The other option if you don’t have the time to screen candidates is an external recruiter. There are a few options for external recruitment companies – there are companies who provide a shortlist from their database and charge based on a percentage of the salary, others charge with a set fee model, and some act as an outsourced option and charge an hourly rate for work carried out.
