Hiring IT Jobs: Looking for Staff But Don’t Know Where to Start?

Juggling the dynamics of time, quality and cost to produce the best results for your business is paramount. Minimising business disruption – critical. Trusting the process – essential.
Where to start with the hiring requirement? It might sound bizarre and unnatural but start with the desired outcome/gain and work backwards. Ask yourself the following questions:

What does success in this position or team look like?

Consider the cost impact of not having the right skills or hiring the wrong skills into the business.

Cost of recruitment for an SME.

Is it a “Piece of Work” requiring specialist skills on contract or an ongoing skills requirement needing a permanent member of staff?

Do you have/need a Job Description?

What is the right recruitment model for you Exclusive or Contingent?

Do you have a modern interview process or do you plan on using 90’s style techniques including numerous interviews?
