Most companies have in place “Position Descriptions” for each employee role. Usually formulated by HR in conjunction with a Department Head. This is an important document outlining the responsibilities so that all parties are clearly informed of the performance expected within that role. The document sets the primary foundations, functions and outlines the skills and experience required within the role, therefore protecting each party and clarifying all expectations.
Position Descriptions can include the following: job title, reporting structure, salary or wage rate, KPI’s, previous experience, skills set, location, qualifications, hours expected and so on.
The person applying for employment is the most important contact in getting the process right. What type of person do they want in the role? “Managers want to hire for tomorrow’s opportunities, not today’s problems” They need client focused performance from the recruiter to provide them with what they need. Building a long-lasting relationship between the hiring manager and the recruiter is imperative. A relationship must be established to acknowledge and understand on a whole, the company and their background giving a clear objective of what their needs really are therefore being able to source the most suited candidate.
If HR advertise the role they will generally formulate an interview list for the Hiring Manager from the CV’s they receive, within this list the recruiter has already executed the correct and applicable screening questions for the companies’ requirements and that are suited to that role
