With competition at its highest, more and more organisations are focusing their efforts on growing their headcount, yet some continue to overlook the importance of the recruitment/screening process, as hiring the right individual is the best investment a company will ever make.

Finding the right candidate for your role can often feel like finding a needle in a haystack, not to mention taking up valuable time and effort. However, with the right processes in place, the best employees are detectable and that’s where Specialist Financial Recruitment comes in.

Although this may seem like a pretty simple process and one that any recruitment agency can be trusted with, a recent survey carried out by Career Builder found that 27% of the UK businesses involved, had calculated the total cost of their hiring issues at £50,000.

But what really is a bad hire? Well, 1 in 10 new employees are considered to be bad ones and have tremendous repercussions as they can easily spread negativity throughout a business, damaging staff morale, productivity, revenue and growth.

So, if you’re looking to recruit only the best for the year ahead, here’s a few key essentials for doing so:

  2. Trust a recruiter with a proven track record

  3. Spend time on getting the job description right, differentiating your essentials from your desirables

  7. Onboard new-starters effectively
