Recruitment isn’t just about getting new people in, it’s about getting the right person in the right place at the right time. This is just as important in a restructure, or when thinking about promoting from within as it is when you have a vacancy that you’re looking to fill externally. Getting the ‘who to appoint?’ decision wrong can be a costly mistake, not just because it costs an estimated £10,000 to recruit and train a new starter, and that’s on top of their salary and on-costs. The damage to morale and effectiveness of the business, the cost of managing that individual to either meet the standards required or exit them from the organisation and any associated settlement payments can all add up.
Our experienced consultants can help you at every step of the recruitment process from helping to write a meaningful job description, person specification and recruitment advert, through long and short listing, to sitting as a member of the interview panel and drafting an offer letter and contract of employment.
We also work with a number of Fire and Rescue Authorities across the country to sift firefighter applications.
So whatever your recruitment needs please get in touch with our Employment Team to discuss how we can help you.
