The framework in our Recruitment Toolkit will help you refine the process of hiring new staff.

The recruitment process

This toolkit aims to simplify and define your overall recruitment process by setting out a framework to meet your needs, as follows:
  • Recruitment policy draft
  • Identifying the type of role(s) you’re hiring for
  • Advertising/attracting applicants
  • Setting up and offering successful applicants employment contracts
  • Inducting new employees
  • Monitoring new employees during probation
  • Observing performance
As such, this toolkit is broken down into three stages, guiding you through these steps to give you the best chance of hiring the best candidate every time.
