Positive Recruitment Practices
It’s normally the first point of engagement. Open and transparent communication about who we are and what we do. When someone is interested in working with us we simply start a conversation with them about what and why they are looking for in their next role, if this fits with what we need as a business we proceed by offering an informal social-based meeting to discuss further in person. By identifying what needs we both have in common we are able to quickly understand each other and quickly move through the remaining aspects of designing a job.
Our core value of flexibility is strongly represented in our recruitment practices. We transparently and openly discuss all aspects of a role with interested people. We listen and talk with people to build a job that they want and need to be successful. We take into consideration flexibility around days of work, type of work or case load and discussion around annual reviewing of the position and clear pathways for career growth coupled with significantly above award pay and education opportunities we have been able to ensure we have hired the right person for the job. Ensuring long-term job satisfaction and low staff turnover.
We know this works because we have continued to hire incredible people throughout this year. Additionally, we work with recruiters who give us feedback that their candidates love our process, often want to work for us and that they appreciate the unique experience. We give no time limit to interviews, guided only by the applicant, we discuss the needs of the applicant and how we could be flexible in meeting them. We are even starting to get people we have interviewed, but chosen not to hire to refer their friends.
It’s also not a bad sign when people are willing to move country to come and work with us. We have helped 2 people move from abroad already and have 2 more we are working with that will be here any day now! Our Visa sponsorship and limited registration pathway employees.
