Recruitment & Selection
Recruitment is the process of acquiring a pool of candidates with the desired knowledge, skills, attributes and experience so you can select the right person who will assist your business to achieve its goals. Recruitment is based on three aspects:
• the needs arising from changes in your business (business restructure / employee retirement) or
• anticipated needs where you can predict personnel movement based on trends in the internal / external environment or
• unexpected needs (resignation, deaths, accidents, illness)
The five steps of recruitment are identify the vacancy; prepare job description and person specification; advertise the vacancy; manage the response and short-list applicants.
Selection is the process of interviews, reference checking and testing or assessment that assists you to ensure the best person is appointed; using effective, fair and equitable practices.
Selection is usually a series of hurdles or steps… each one must be successfully cleared before the applicant proceeds to the next step. The time, emphasis and sequence of steps will vary between organisations.
There are two steps in the selection process: identification of prospective applicants with initial short listing of applications and screening by way of interview and reference checks.
