Achieving the best results from your recruitment strategy.jpg.jpg

With 70 per cent of British workers planning to search for a new job in 2024 (HR Review), there is a high chance that you will have to recruit in 2024.

Furthermore, there are many other reasons why you would need to recruit this year. For example, due to business growth or employees progressing into other roles. So, how do you get the most out of your recruitment in 2024?

Here the Eventus Recruitment team explain how to make full use of your recruitment plan and enhance your hiring strategy:

Consider your employer brand for recruiting

Consider your “employer brand” not just your client one. Work with marketing to shout about why someone should come and want to work for your firm, what you’re doing well, successes, promotions, values etc. Get your employees advocating for you with interviews, quotes etc.

– Amy Watson, legal recruitment specialist covering the North East and Yorkshire. 

Use social media to promote your company and target the right candidates. Make sure your online presence reflects the company’s ethos and promotes employer benefits. Post testimonials with feedback from your employees and ask them to interact and re-post your job adverts.

– Shelley Gilchrist, resourcing consultant covering legal finance, finance and accountancy.

Be Pro-active

Act as quickly as you can. Active candidates in the legal sector get snapped up quickly so if you are hiring and receive a good application be sure to get an interview in your diary as soon as possible. Equally as important if you decide to make an offer – get the offer to them as quickly as possible as they are likely to be interviewing at several firms.

– Nikki Phillips, legal recruitment specialist covering North West England and Wales.

The detrimental impact of a bad hire

The cost of a bad hire is not just money but time as well. So, thorough thought needs to go into your strategy to try and avoid recruiting the wrong person. As hiring the wrong person will result in a loss of productivity and often having to re-start hiring process. Recruiters can advise on the best recruitment methods to get the right candidates for your needs, as well as screening candidates.

– Siobhan Courtney, managing director and legal recruitment specialist covering the Home Counties, London and Ireland.

Fully optimise your job adverts

Perfect your job adverts. Don’t rush writing your job adverts. Include all the information that potential employees would want to know about the job role, employee benefits and company. Ask a recruitment or marketing specialist to have a look and ensure you mentioned all the key words that job seekers search for. This will help ensure your job adverts are optimised for job boards and increase their visibility. 

– Emma Guy, marketing manager.

Remember that the job interview is a two-way process

When interviewing make sure you sell the business, brand and workplace. It’s a two way exchange this whole recruitment process and firms have got to be ‘selling’ themselves. The candidate is interviewing them as much as anything.

– Jo Hood, recruitment specialist covering legal finance, finance and accountancy roles across England and Wales.

Offer competitive employee benefits

Stay ahead by offering attractive benefits to potential employees. Flexible work options can be a significant factor in a candidate’s decision-making process when deciding on a new job. Embracing remote / hybrid work and flexible hours can lead to higher employee satisfaction and productivity.

– Sam Heraghty, resourcing consultant in the legal sector.

Key takeaways for your recruitment strategy

With the prediction that 70 per cent of British workers plan to search for a new job in 2024, the jobs market will remain competitive. As a result, it’s important to utilise your resources to get your job vacancies in front of the top candidates. Also, you need to be responsive to stay ahead of your competition and to ensure you don’t miss out on the right candidate for your business.
