Business Support Hour 17 May 2023: Helen Stacey, Aspire Jobs – recruiting in today’s market

Helen Stacey from Aspire Jobs talks about what you need to do to recruit in the current marketplace and how this can benefit your business by saving you time and money. Helen reports that good candidates are in short supply in the New Forest, meaning that employers really do have to make their company and the job appear really attractive. Furthermore, she reports that if a recruitment goes wrong, it can often cost more than the first year’s salary. It is therefore really important to recruit carefully, and to be honest in how you portray the job and your company.

Helen offers many top tips on how to attract good candidates, portray your company effectively and retain their interest in the face of counter offers.
