What is a recruitment process?
A recruitment process is a step-by-step method used by recruiters to source, recruit and ultimately hire new employees. A good recruitment process will help you attract and retain high-quality employees who match the job role. The specific elements of a recruitment process are unique to each business, but there are some general steps every business can follow to attract and hire qualified candidates.
- Write a job description that accurately reflects the job role
- Advertise the job vacancy
- Analyse and review applicants CV’s and cover letters
- Conduct interviews (or video conferencing interviews if recruiting remotely)
- Run a background check and check references
- Make a hiring decision
- Extend a job offer and hire the new employee
