The latest news and advice from our recruitment experts.
We have 24 hours in one day, 1,440 minutes, 86,400 seconds, in which 8.8 of those 24 hours will be you working, 7.7 hours sleeping, spending 1.1 hours eating, approximately 1 hour of activities, 1.2 hours caring for others and 2.6 hours leisure and sport – oh and the other 1 hour…I’m sure you can work it out. So my question to you as HR Managers, how much time within those 8.8 hours is spent selecting the right candidates for a new role? I am assuming here, but I can take a guess, for some of you the 8.8 hours will seep into that 1 hour of activities maybe even the 2.6 hours of leisure because you are constrained by time. With the overwhelming amount of resumes you need to plough through, you’re not only frazzled, you’re understaffed, and you need help!
So the question is, why would do we put ourselves under this much pressure when there could be a simple fix?
Well, we may have the answer for you. If you’re short on time as an HR Manager, our Shortlist Service might be your perfect solution. Not only does the shortlist service offer you the ability to utilise one of our experienced in-house consultants, but ensures that your job advertisement is loaded to leading jobsites such as TradeMe and Seek.
By choosing the QJumpers shortlist service, we will take the arduous ‘day to day’ stress out of managing your candidate queries and responses. Greg Johnston from Marra explained, at the time of selecting their new Office Manager, due to their current work commitments, QJumpers ran the whole process of hiring their new recruit. The time saved, and the prompt filling of the role allowed for a seamless process.
After careful consideration, our experienced consultants will determine at least three suitable applicants. Telephone screen those suitable and then present the selected to you. But wait there’s more, our consultants will also follow through with any reference checks that are required.
As Tristen Mauhene-Zachrias from ICONZ said, it made ICONZ experience of recruiting more efficient and enjoyable.
The beauty of our shortlist service is that once we have defined your list, you’ll have more time to actually talk to your selected candidates. All the information you need will be ready and waiting at your fingertips.
As one of our clients described, QJumpers take care of the “Dear John” letters. BRANZ said, if further access to the candidates was required down the track, they could tap them on their shoulders if necessary.
We will work with you along the way, to ensure you are comfortable from the ‘get go’ and the entire process throughout. Your consultants are also there to discuss any additional requirements you may have.
So, what are you waiting for? Take the ease out of those 8.8 hours in your day, and choose this professional shortlist service lead by specialised consultants.
