15. methods of recruitment

Methods Of Recruitment

Job centres - These are paid for by the government and are responsible for helping the unemployed find jobs or get training. They also provide a service for businesses needing to advertise a vacancy and are generally free to use.

Job advertisements - Advertisements are the most common form of external recruitment. They can be found in many places (local and national newspapers, notice boards, recruitment fairs) and should include some important information relating to the job (job title, pay package, location, job description, how to apply-either by CV or application form). Where a business chooses to advertise will depend on the cost of advertising and the coverage needed (i.e. how far away people will consider applying for the job.

Recruitment agency - Provides employers with details of suitable candidates for a vacancy and can sometimes be referred to as ‘head-hunters’. They work for a fee and often specialize in particular employment areas e.g. nursing, financial services, teacher recruitment.

Personal recommendation - Often referred to as ‘word of mouth’ and can be a recommendation from a colleague at work. A full assessment of the candidate is still needed however but potentially it saves on advertising cost.

Internet - Most companies will have their own website, where they will post up when they have a job vacancy. This is probably the best place to look for specific companies job and is probably quite easy to do if you don't have a specific job that you're looking for.

Internal Promotions - The assessment of an employer's current staff to ascertain if any current employees are sufficiently skilled or qualified to perform required job vacancies. When a business engages in internal recruitment, a current employee might be reassigned to the new position by giving them either a promotion or an internal transfer.

Massive, stage-set, and usually regular trade event at which a large number of manufactures from a particular industry present their products and show their capabilities to distributors, wholesalers, retailers and end-users.

Trade Fairs - Some trade fairs (like Hanover Book Fair) attract participants and visitors from all over the world and provide widespread interactions and exposure. Trade fairs are a popular means of sales promotion because their average cost of making a face to face contact is about 44 percent of a personal-sales visit. See also trade show.
