Understanding the recruitment timeline

Home / Automotive Recruitment Agency Tips / Understanding the recruitment timeline

At John Gibson Associates we offer specialist recruitment services for the motor trade industry, working very hard to satisfy the needs of all kinds of clients. Whatever the role we are confident we have the skills and experience to find the right candidates for you. Working with us means you can expect a first rate service every time and benefit from the extensive knowledge we possess.

One area we always advise clients about is the recruitment timeline. Hiring new staff naturally takes time because there are so many steps involved in the process. Typically it will go a little something like this;

1) Identify staff needs
2) Create a recruitment plan including deciding where ads will be placed
3) Settle on a brief
4) Implement the plan
5) Review applicants and create a shortlist
6) Conduct interviews
7) Select a recruit
8) Finalise the hire

The process can prove to be very long, especially when you consider how much time is needed at each stage. It is important to be aware of the timeline and ensure you recruit at the right point. If possible you should be recruiting as early as possible when you identify a need. The last thing you want is to go through the process and then find the market has changed and additional staff are no longer as crucial.

We can help clients in the motor trade to dramatically speed up the recruitment process thanks to our extensive experience and database of quality candidates. You can come to us with an idea of your needs and we will find potential recruits for you, saving you a great deal of time. We already have the details of numerous talented people looking to work in the industry and can create and place adverts in the most fitting places for you if you want to look beyond this.

Whatever your needs we are confident we can help you to cut your recruitment timetable and get the right staff in place within a shorter timeframe. You’ll have professional advice from us throughout and work with a highly experienced recruiter. Our focus is always on delivering the very best value for you, both in terms of our service and the quality of the candidates we find for you.
