Recruitment can be a very costly and time-consuming process, which needs to be handled carefully so you get the right person into the job, manage costs and avoid any discrimination claims.
We have a wealth of experience in recruitment and can offer you clear and practical guidance. We can partner you at different stages or throughout the whole recruitment process to help you hire the best people for your business. Recruitment can be expensive and therefore it is essential that the right candidate is identified. We can assist you with:
- Defining job roles (conducting job role analysis, preparing job descriptions and person specification)
- Attracting applicants (placing recruitment adverts, liaising with recruitment agencies and addressing diversity gaps)
- Managing the application and selection process (receiving and reviewing application forms and CVs and candidate selection)
- Making the appointment (conducting pre-employment checks, obtaining references, issuing offer letters and contracts of employment)
Employee induction strategy and planning
It is important to ensure that right from the start an employee is successfully integrated into the organisation to enable the process of them settling into their new role, building up positive working relationships and finding a role for themselves within a team.
We can support you by designing induction programmes in line with your business structure and objectives, and induction documentation to accompany this. During the initial stages of employment, we can help you to identify training needs for new employees, support managers at meetings with employees during their probationary period and prepare supporting documentation.

Canterbury Christ Church University
Veronica was instrumental in helping us to shape and implement the interview process and provided us with very useful feedback regarding the strengths of our students at interview and work we can do with them to improve their chances of being successful in gaining employment. Reports form the students suggest that they found this an enormously useful experience and we thank Veronica for her time and input into the process.

We have been using Kent HR services for almost a year and have found them to be extremely professional. Previously we were using another company who unfortunately were unable to provide accurate legal advice and in a less timely manner. GASE will continue to use Kent HR for all HR related matters.
