Preface

If you hire in haste, you will almost certainly dismiss at length. This book will help you to recruit effectively, avoiding the common pitfalls. It sets out the legal requirements applicable during the recruitment process as well as best practice and some useful hints and tips to help you recruit the right person for the job, saving you time, money and effort.

Getting it wrong can be both expensive and frustrating. These sobering statistics give us a clue:

- Accuracy of recruiting when using interviews alone is approximately 33 per cent.

- The direct cost of recruitment is approximately £2k per person for a straightforward job. It will be more for complex and more senior roles.

- Advertising costs can be steep. They range from about £400 in local papers to £25k in Sunday broadsheets.

If you have the wrong people in place, your business will under-perform. You need good people with the right skills to look after your customers and/or make your products.
