How do I recruit staff?

Recruiting staff generally involves 5 processes:

  • i. Developing a job description and person specification – i.e. the main duties and responsibilities of the job and the skills, experience and knowledge required by someone to carry out the work needed.
  • ii. Advertising the job
  • iii. Interview the candidates
  • iv. Decide on the successful candidate. Community Access Group would advise you make a Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) check.
  • v. Appoint your staff and agree terms and conditions of employment.

Organisations, such as Community Access Group, who are registered with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) can carry out a criminal records check (CRB check) on a person who are considering employing.

Community Access Group can then tell you if the person is someone who it is suitable to employ. You can see the result of the CRB check itself if the potential employee gives their permission

Community Access Group strongly advises you to have these checks carried out and not to employ any person who refuses to agree to the checks being made.

You will know you have chosen the right person if they are reliable and respectful, do the job you have employed them for properly and you feel comfortable with them.

You may wish to consider making the first 12 weeks of employment as a probationary period. During this time you will be able to decide if the employee can do the job. You may also be able to find out if they require any training. If at the end of the 12 weeks you don’t feel they are right for the job, you can ask them to leave.
