Recruitment – GCSE Business Studies Revision

Why Recruit More Staff?

  • Because your business is selling more and expanding
  • Because staff are away for a while
  • Because someone has quit
  • Because you promoted someone
  • Because you fired someone

The Stages of Recruitment

  1. Identify the job vacancy
  2. Write a job description of that vacancy
  3. Write a person specification about the sort of person you’ll need
  4. Advertise the job
  5. Send out application forms to those interested
  6. Get application forms back and look through them
  7. Shortlist the best candidates
  8. Interview everyone on the shortlist
  9. Chose the best person from the interviews
  10. Make the job offer (hire them, offer them the job)
  • The job description describes what the worker has to do
  • The person specification lists the qualities someone applying for the job will need
  • A CV, or Curriculum Vitae is a document where applicants identify their strengths, experience and qualifications to promote themself
