Common Issues our clients face:
- Teams consisting of friends of friends, family, referrals. Is it the best talent for your company?
- No HR Manager in the team. Who is writing your job descriptions? Are you aware of UK regulations (for instance, it is forbidden to say "native Russian speaker" as it is a discrimination against fluent speakers)? Do you know which questions to ask candidates to understand if they are a good fit (even if they come to you "pre-selected" from the recruitment agency) ?
- Poor organisational structure. Do you know which skills are missing and which positions should be full-time/part-time/outsourced?
- Jack of all trades and master of none for the minimum salary. Are you trying to close 2-3 skill gaps by one person? Will he/she be able to perform all of those tasks at the required level? What will be the candidate's commitment in the long run?
- Too simple job description, vague details of responsibilities, Will the right candidate be interested in your offer? Will he/she understand what you expect them to do? Will he/she be able to find your job advert using the keywords?
- Not appropriate job title. Are you looking for an experienced Finance Director or an Accountant? Is your team missing a Marketing Coordinator or a Digital Account Manager? Will the candidate understand from just the title who you are trying to hire?
- Advertising of the jobs on the wrong platforms and job-sites. Should you spend money on advertising on indeed.co.uk? Will LinkedIn yield enough applications? Where will the person you are looking for search for jobs?
- Screening is lacking a structure. What are you paying attention to in the CVs when accessing suitability of the candidate? Do you consider candidate's potential? Are you reading between the lines? Do you give your candidates tasks to complete as part of your selection process?
- Interviews are not conducted properly. Is only one person interviewing your candidates? Are you asking the right questions and digging deep enough to save you time and money in the future for replacements? Do you identify competencies at the Job Design stage and use competency-based questions to compare the candidates?
