Human Resources

When it comes to hiring and retaining staff there is so much at stake that it can feel a little daunting to know how to go about it and get the right result.

Our human resource team has years of experience in hiring staff and running recruitment processes which means that we can help you to get the best result possible, whether it’s taking care of the entire process for you or simply acting as a sounding board or providing an independent view to give you confidence in your decision.

Thinking about where to advertise, how to know you’ve found the right person and even what the right person really is are all important considerations that we can help with. It’s a good idea to start with being clear about what the job is and what you need the person to do and also what type of person will fit well with your team. If you don’t have a useful job description that might be a place to start.

Our human resource experts can then advise you on your recruitment marketing plan and implement it for you if you want.

If you’ve never hired staff before and don’t know where to start, we can guide you through that process. Right from defining the person you need to being sure that once you’ve found a great person, you have an employment agreement to offer them.

If you have employed before but you know you made a mistake somewhere along the line or if you simply don’t have time to manage the process, our expertise and independence can support you to make the best staff hiring decision. We can write advertisements, prepare interview questions, conduct interviews and follow up with reference checking.
