Recruiting new staff can be one of the most demanding challenges faced by a business owner, especially when it is being done for the first time. The need to recruit staff usually arises when a business expands, increases its workload or needs someone with specific skills, or when a staff member leaves and needs to be replaced. An effective recruitment process will help to ensure the business owner selects the best person for the job and fulfils its legal responsibilities as an employer.
This factsheet provides an introduction to the recruitment process and explains how to define your requirements clearly, identify and analyse jobs, and prepare job descriptions and person specifications. It includes useful hints and tips as well as sources of further information.
