Recruitment and retention

Finding and retaining the best candidate for a new role can be a daunting, time-consuming and costly process for any business. While your exact recruitment and selection requirements may differ, a typical recruitment process might include:

  1. Scoping the requirements for the role
  2.  Identifying the best places to source candidates
  3. Negotiating with agencies
  4.  Advertising the role
  5. Pre-screening candidates
  6. Interviews and shortlist
  7. Psychometric testing
  8. Background checks
  9. Offer and contracts

Depending on your requirements, HR Advise Me can assist with a specific stage of the process, or can manage the entire process for you. From scoping out the initial requirements, competencies and personality traits required, through to advertising, sourcing and interviewing applicants, we can help to steer you towards the perfect candidate. Once you have them on board our HR Consultants can work with you to help ensure you retain them too.

Background and reference checks

Verifying a candidate’s references or carrying out background checks is critical nowadays and in some instances obligatory. HR Advise Me offers a variety of background checks, including: 

  • Criminal record (DBS) checks
  • Social media background checks for candidates entering a public-facing or PR-oriented role
  • Credit checks for those entering the financial industry
  • Reference checking

Our background checks can be performed as part of a full recruitment process or as a standalone service, with advice available to businesses who are unsure which checks should be carried out. We will also help you interpret the resulting reports, and discuss with you the implications of the findings.
