The Recruitment Process to Fill your Reading Job

Good quality employees can prove to be tricky to recruit but you can't run a business without them! Filling your Reading jobs with quality employees may well be able to actually turn a poor organisation into strong and successful company. AllReadingJobs is pleased to offer you some advice to get you through the recruitment process so you can find the perfect person for your Reading jobs.

It can often appear like these miracle workers are mythical and totally impossible to locate. The often publicised ‘skills gap’ can make sourcing the right employees for your Reading jobs difficult for so how do you go about it?


Why is the recruitment process so vital?


The recruitment process is essential as if you get it right you greatly reduce the possibility of taking on the not ideal person for your Reading jobs. Get the process wrong, and you could find that you won’t even attract applications from appropriate candidates, much less find them during the selection process. This all means you’ve wasted good money on a faulty recruitment process.


An overall organisational strategy for resourcing and recruiting staff


Recruitment should not just be seen as a process to fill your existing Reading jobs needs but should be seen as a part of an overall business strategy for resourcing and recruiting staff for your Reading jobs. Once you have filled one of your Reading jobs, you should have a number of candidates who you could consider for the same or other Reading positions later on. This should make the process much more straight forward and cost effective next time.


Recruitment is not only about filling your Reading jobs


Recruitment is not purely about filling your Reading jobs. The process exposes your business to the public. Think of candidates as prospective clients so if an applicant has had an unfavourable experience with your company, you can guarantee that they will tell people about it and word gets about. It’s essential that the whole recruitment process for your Reading jobs creates an excellent impression of your business


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


Firstly, you have to draw up a ‘job profile’ ensuring that you truly fully understand what you require candidate for your Reading jobs. make sure you have knowledge of the legal aspects of advertising your Reading jobs (for example discrimination) before you begin. Reading Borough Council / Berkshire County Council websites should have some useful information.

You clearly also need to place your adverts for your Reading jobs somewhere to give them the best exposure. The most common ways include:

• Job Boards such as AllReadingJobs

• Reading Recruitment Agencies

• The Reading Job Centre

• Reading Post / Reading Chronicle / Reading Midweek
