Selling Your Company and Job Positions with Top Recruitment Agencies

The market for top talent gets more and more competitive every day, which is forcing employers to do as much of the hard work as the candidate during the interview stage. You have to really sell your company and explain why they would want to work for you in order to hire and retain the best possible team and turn interviewees who are not suitable into PR agents for you.

Below are four tips top recruitment agencies recommend to ensure that you do this successfully.

What is your company's culture?

Cultural fit is very important to candidates when deciding which company to work for, so explain your company culture to the candidate and tell them what makes your company unique compared to others.

Move Around

Don't just stay in the interview room; change the scenery and watch how the candidate conducts themselves. Take them on a walk through your offices and introduce the interviewee to the key people in your business; this will inspire them to want to work there; make them feel part of the team and help them visualise working with you on a day to day basis.

Who will the candidate be working with?

It is very important to give a clear outline of the job description and a rundown of who the candidate will be working with and reporting to. This gives a sense of structure and lets them know exactly where they stand and meeting their work colleagues should inspire excitement and reassurance that they will enjoy working with the team.

Do you have employer competition?

It is vital to find out what is personally and vocationally important to the candidate; it's also good practice to know if they have any other job offers in the pipeline that you may need to contend with. This way, you can show that you care about the candidate as much as you care about the fulfilment of the position and that you are willing to be flexible and take their needs into account.

If there is competition for a candidate that you want to hire, then this gives you the opportunity to research the rival and offer the proposed employee a better package if you can.

Selling a job position to the candidate is just as important as finding the right person to fill the position. If the interviewee really wants what you are offering, then they will show you all of their best attributes so that you can make a well informed decision. And if the interviewee is not your choice candidate, you have not wasted your efforts; they will promote your company image as you have to them. Use the PA recruitment agencies in London to promote your company image by inviting them in, then using them to convey the message to their team and candidates and you will have a better chance of choosing the right candidate who will fit in long term and add value to your team.
