When it comes to recruitment, it pays to plan ahead. And if like us, you’re already turning your thoughts to Christmas and the New Year, you might want to start the ball rolling now.

Perhaps your business is growing in size or you have a skills gap and you’d like to bolster your team? Or maybe you have a busy period coming up and need extra support in the way of contractors? Whatever the need, we can offer a flexible working solution to help you meet your targets. But you need to act fast.

Ho ho no. I can’t make that interview…

The Christmas holidays often slow the whole recruitment process down. Many offices are closed, plus people take time out and become less flexible with dates. So if you don’t get started soon, you could find yourself behind the competition by the time January comes around.

Don’t forget the notice period

If you’re looking for professional flexible workers, it’s worth bearing in mind that they’re likely to be on a notice period. It’s usual for a one month notice period but at a more senior level it can often be a three month notice period so it pays to think ahead.

Build in time for a robust process

The end-to-end recruitment process can take anything from 2-6 weeks and sometimes more. Refining the brief, advertising the vacancy, sourcing suitable candidates and scheduling interviews all takes time. You may wish to see candidates again, and as we say, they could be on a notice period of a month or more.

To find out more about the recruitment process, take a look at the brown panel on our business page.

If you’re not sure about the different ways to hire flexible workers, we’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We work closely with our clients to devise a recruitment plan that employs the best flexible workers in the best way for the business.

Get in touch today and who knows, 2017 could be your most successful year yet!
