Finding the right employees for your business can be a challenge. Highly skilled candidates with lots of experience, for example, are often in demand. With a little thought and planning and taking the right steps you will be well on your way of finding ‘the one.’

The key to finding the right employee is to understand exactly what type of person you are looking for, and then go and find them. This involves doing more than simply advertising on the internet and waiting for CVs to flood in.

Social Media can be a good resource to use – especially LinkedIn. You can advertise on LinkedIn and target candidates with certain skills or you can hand-pick and contact candidates yourself. One of the primary advantages for using LinkedIn is it helps recruiters to reach a wider audience, to find qualified candidates who would be otherwise impossible to locate because they aren’t actively looking for jobs.

Job boards still play a significant role in company recruiting. Advertising on jobs boards may help track people down. You may be inundated with CVS, but often they are not the quality you are looking for. We would say – yes use job boards if it works for you, but don’t rely on them.

Recruitment agencies have become a valuable resource for finding talent quickly and efficiently. They have in-depth knowledge of the jobs market and specific industry sectors and have access to the best pool of candidates.

Using a recruitment agency saves time. They take care of all the steps, including sorting through applications, interviewing, screening, and reference checks.  This gives employers peace of mind that the candidates they are interviewing have already passed the necessary checks.
