After drawing up a job specification, you need to choose a method of recruitment. The various methods range from advertising in the national press to using a professional “headhunter”. Whichever method you select will involve at least one interview.
Avoid wasting time by interviewing only genuinely suitable candidates.
The response to advertisements for jobs in the national press can be overwhelming.
Headhunters charge a percentage of the salary of the person they are recruiting, so the higher that person’s salary, the more hunting they will do.
Processing responses can be time-consuming, so a candidate should not be interviewed just on the strength of a well-written curriculum vitae.
