The Recruitment Process to Fill your Cornwall Job

Top quality employees can prove to be tricky to recruit but you can't run a business without them! Filling your Cornwall jobs with excellent staff could actually transform a weak company into strong and healthy organisation. AllCornwallJobs is pleased to offer you some advice to get you through the recruitment process so you can find the perfect person for your Cornwall jobs.

I know it can often seem like these miracle workers are mythical and impossible to find. The much publicised ‘skills gap’ can mean sourcing the perfect staff for your Cornwall jobs difficult for so how do you set about it?

Why is the recruitment process so essential?

The recruitment process is vital as if you can get it right you greatly reduce the possibility of taking on the not ideal person for your Cornwall jobs. Get the process wrong, and you could find that you won’t even receive applications from appropriate candidates, much less spot them during the interview process. This means you’ve spent good money on a flawed recruitment process.

An overall company strategy for resourcing and recruiting workers

Recruitment shouldn’t only be considered as a process to fill your current Cornwall jobs needs but should be seen as a part of an overall company strategy for resourcing and recruiting employees for your Cornwall jobs. Once you have filled one of your Cornwall jobs, you should have a list of candidates who you could consider for the same or similar Cornwall jobs later on. This should make the process much more straight forward and cost effective for filling your future Cornwall jobs.

Recruitment is not just about filling your Cornwall jobs

Recruitment is not simply about filling your Cornwall jobs. The process exposes your business to the public. Think of candidates as prospective customers so if a candidate has had an unfavourable experience with your business, then you can guarantee that they are likely to tell others about it and word gets around. It’s crucial that the whole recruitment process for your Cornwall jobs creates an excellent impression of your organisation

How do you go about finding the right applicants for your Cornwall job?

Firstly, you must write a ‘job profile’ ensuring that you do fully understand what you require candidate for your Cornwall jobs. Ensure you have knowledge of the legal aspects of advertising your Cornwall jobs (for example discrimination) before you commence. Cornwall County Council / North Cornwall District Council websites should have some helpful information.

You clearly also need to put your adverts for your Cornwall jobs somewhere to give them the best exposure. The most frequently used include:

• Job Boards such as AllCornwallJobs

• Cornwall Recruitment Agencies

• The Cornwall Job Centre Plus

• Cornish Times / Cornish Guardian
