The Recruitment Process to Fill your Swansea Job

Good quality employees can prove to be difficult to recruit but you can't run a business without them! Filling your Swansea jobs with great staff may well be able to transform a poor organisation into strong and successful business. AllSwanseaJobs is pleased to offer you some advice to get you through the recruitment process so you can find the perfect person for your Swansea jobs.

It can seem like these miracle workers are mythical and totally impossible to find. The often commented on ‘skills gap’ can mean sourcing the ideal staff for your Swansea jobs difficult for so how do you set about it?

Why is the process of recruitment so vital?

The recruitment process is vital as if you do get it right you virtually eliminate the possibility of employing the not ideal person for your Swansea jobs. Get the process wrong, and you could discover that you won’t even receive applications from appropriate candidates, much less spot them during the interview process. This means you’ve wasted good money on a flawed recruitment process.

An overall business strategy for resourcing and recruiting personnel

Recruitment shouldn’t just be seen as a process to fill your current employment needs but should be viewed as a part of an overall organisational strategy for resourcing and recruiting employees for your Swansea jobs. Once you have filled one of your Swansea jobs, you should have a record of candidates who you would consider for the same or other Swansea jobs later on. This should make the process much simpler and cost effective the next time around.

Recruitment is not purely about filling your Swansea jobs

Recruitment is not simply about filling your Swansea jobs. The process exposes your business to the public. Think of candidates as potential clients so if a candidate has had an unfavourable experience with your business, then you can guarantee that they will tell people about it and word gets around. It’s critical that the whole recruitment process for your Swansea jobs creates a positive impression of your company

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

Firstly, you need create a ‘job profile’ ensuring that you actually fully understand what you require candidate for your Swansea jobs. Ensure you understand the legal aspects of advertising your Swansea jobs (for example discrimination) before you commence. Swansea Borough Council / Glamorgan County Council websites will have some relevant information.

You clearly also need to place your adverts for your Swansea jobs somewhere to give them the best exposure. The most commonly used include:

• Job Boards such as AllSwanseaJobs

• Swansea Recruitment Agencies

• The Swansea Job Centre Plus

• South Wales Evening Post / Swansea Herald Of Wales
