The Recruitment Process to Fill your Exeter Job

Top quality employees can prove to be difficult to recruit but you can't run a business without them! Filling your Exeter jobs with good workers could literally turn a unsuccessful company into strong and successful company. AllExeterJobs is pleased to offer you some advice to get you through the recruitment process so you can find the perfect person for your Exeter jobs.

It can appear like these miracle workers are mythical and essentially impossible to locate. The frequently publicised ‘skills gap’ can mean sourcing the perfect employees for your Exeter jobs difficult for so how do you go about it?


Why is the process of recruitment so vital?


The recruitment process is crucial as if you get it right you virtually eliminate the possibility of employing the wrong person for your Exeter jobs. Get it wrong, and you will find that you won’t even attract applications from appropriate candidates, much less spot them during the selection process. This means you’ve wasted good money on a defective recruitment process.


An overall company strategy for resourcing and recruiting employees


Recruitment shouldn’t just be seen as a process to fill your present employment needs but should be regarded as a part of an overall organisational strategy for resourcing and recruiting staff for your Exeter jobs. Once you have filled one of your Exeter jobs, you should have a record of candidates who you could consider for the same or other Exeter positions later on. This could make the process much more straight forward and cost effective next time.


Recruitment is not purely about filling your Exeter jobs


Recruitment is not purely about filling your Exeter jobs. The process exposes your business to the public. Consider applicants as prospective clients so if an applicant has had an unfavourable experience with your business, then you be sure that they are likely to tell people about it and word gets around. It’s essential that the whole recruitment process for your Exeter jobs creates an excellent impression of your business


How do you set about finding the right applicants for your Exeter job?


Firstly, you need write a ‘job profile’ making sure that you yourself fully understand what you require candidate for your Exeter jobs. Ensure you understand the legal aspects of advertising your Exeter jobs (for example discrimination) before you begin. Exeter City Council / Devon County Council websites should have some useful information.

You naturally also need to place your adverts for your Exeter jobs somewhere to give them the maximum exposure. The most frequently used include:

• Job Boards such as AllExeterJobs

• Exeter Recruitment Agencies

• The Exeter Job Centre

• The Exeter Express / The Exeter Echo
