The BCC and Indeed have created The Hiring Handbook to help businesses find and recruit the best people.
For a small business, making the right hire can be a transformative undertaking. As something that is often done infrequently, finding the right person for the role can carry significant weight. It can also be hard to know where to begin and how to proceed. While search engine technology has levelled the playing field for attracting applications, the prospect of managing a comprehensive hiring process can be daunting, especially for businesses without dedicated HR staff.
This guide is designed to walk you through the process of finding and hiring a new employee, beginning with the initial decision to hire. There is also guidance on assessing CVs, interviewing and making a job offer.
