The Recruitment Process

We use our recruitment process approach to attract and resource candidates. We mail existing and lapsed workers with lists of jobs, encouraging them to pass this information on to potential applicants. We ensure that local job networks are aware of the vacancies and:

  • Organise press releases and free publicity
  • Organise paid advertising in local and regional newspapers
  • Organise paid advertising in job specific publications
  • Utilise our own website and other contract online job boards
  • Build relationships with local employers to re-deploy redundant staff
  • Use local radio advertising

Prior to registration with us, each applicant is assessed to determine his or her suitability for work through ‘doorstep’ interviewing, telephone screening or CV analysis. We would ascertain such details as:

  • Availability for work
  • Work experience
  • Ability to be contacted by telephone
  • Availability of references
  • Required travelling distance to work

At registration, each applicant completes a registration card which provides the first basic test of comprehension and spelling. It includes personal details, work history and a basic skill knowledge questionnaire depending on the type of vacancy they are applying for. Applicants are then interviewed by a consultant to assess skills and attitude. This assessment is based around a discussion of previous work experience and current motivation for applying. Prior to any decision to deploy an applicant, a minimum of two references will be taken from previous employers and gaps in employment will be questioned and verified.
