Recruitment Policies and Job Descriptions

When you decide you wish to expand your business and take on staff, there are a number of factors you need to consider before and during the recruitment and selection process in order to treat people fairly and put yourself in the best position to recruit high calibre candidates.

Preparation is key to a successful recruitment campaign and the Recruitment Policy will help you avoid discrimination and comply with current best practice in your selection processes. When considering the selection process, employers may wish to offer an employee referral scheme to encourage employees to refer potential candidates.

Once you have decided to recruit, your first step should be to prepare a detailed job description, clarifying the key duties and responsibilities of the role and defining the background and skills of the type of person who could most effectively perform the role. This sub-folder also has examples of completed Job Descriptions. Always give candidates the Job Specification Form in advance and gear your interview questions to ascertaining if the candidate has the competencies to do the role.

Keep up-to-date Job Descriptions for every role in your company and refer to them regularly (for instance in the performance appraisal process) to ensure that they reflect the reality of the role and expectations are clear on both sides.

Recruitment Policies and Job Descriptions are part of the Employment document folder. Get access to all the documents in the Employment Folder for only £35+VAT.
