Below; we’ll take you through the recruitment process of using your chosen online job board to advertise your vacancies and find relevant candidates.
Firstly, before you post a job advert, you need to assess in depth what the role will involve and the kind of person needed to fulfil the role successfully. Speak to your manager and other colleagues of the team to assess where they may need extra support or future plans that would involve extra staff. Having a clear idea about the role to put in your job advert will ensure candidates are much more likely to apply. You also want to ensure that the role is suitable in itself, that there will be enough work for the employee and enough resource for their salary and work items.
Secondly, you need to write your job advert. The key is to sell the job role, while also remaining truthful and realistic. Of course every role may involve some mundane tasks, but try to be positive about these and not dwell on them. A great way to lay out the job advert is as follows:
Job description – what tasks and opportunities will the role involve? Try to include a range of tasks and information about any specific areas or projects in the job advert. This is the key part you want to sell in job adverts, make it an interesting read to entice candidates. Simply bullet pointing the tasks will be boring and discourage applications from candidates.
Information about the company – include brief information about your start up and industry you work in, as well as potential future plans in the job advert. This will give the candidate an idea about how you operate and if they see themselves working in your company.
Person specification profile – what does the ‘ideal’ candidate need to have? You can include mental and physical attributes, as well as educational achievements and qualifications. Think about whether the candidate must have experience or previous knowledge to help avoid unsuitably qualified candidates applying.
Employee benefits – It’s always best to put these details last, to avoid candidates applying just because of the great benefits. Although salaries may vary according to candidate, it’s a good idea to at least put a bench mark figure in the job advert to allow candidates to gauge if the job is suitable for them. Also; include information about holiday allowance or any other benefits your company will offer e.g. free training, company car, etc.
