What to Include in a Great Recruitment Strategy


What to Include in a Great Recruitment Strategy

Before you can start sourcing top Cloud & IT Infrastructure candidates, you need a plan of action.

Your recruitment strategy will help to roadmap your future hires, costs and workloads and allow you to find professionals who suit your organisations brand and identity.

But what should you include in a recruitment strategy?

Our Co-Founder Tim Davey tells us the elements IT Solutions & Services Providers should be including in their recruitment strategy:

“A recruitment strategy is a clear plan around what your broader hiring structure looks like.

Recruitment strategies should include:

  • What roles you will recruit for
  • When you will recruit for those roles
  • Why you’re recruiting for those roles
  • How you will recruit for those roles

It should also be tied to your company objectives, and must be clear and easy to communicate.

It’s important to get your recruitment strategy right and to spend adequate time developing your plan.

Your recruitment strategy will have a great impact on your business moving forwards.

There are core areas which need addressing when planning your strategy.

These include:

  • What are your growth plans?
  • What are your budgets for recruitment?
  • Who will take ownership for elements of your plan?
  • What types of roles will you be hiring for?
  • What are your candidate attraction strategies?
  • What is your mix between Direct vs Agency vs Internal Development?
  • Permanent or Contract hires?
  • How will you use your employer brand and culture for advertising roles?
  • Which recruitment technologies will you use?
  • How will you measure the success of your recruitment strategy?

There’s no point having a plan and strategy without knowing how you will measure its effectiveness.

By answering those questions, you will find huge opportunities for business growth within your recruitment strategy, including:

  • More profitable business
  • Faster growth
  • Better productivity
  • Happier employees
  • Increased staff retention
  • Less stress
  • More time

It’s a no-brainer to create a great recruitment strategy.

If planned out correctly you will reap the rewards.”
