The success of an organisation depends on having the right number of staff, with the right skills and abilities. A good job description is useful for all jobs. It enables prospective applicants to assess themselves for the job. It can help with induction and training.

As an employer you have legal responsibility to ensure that your policies and procedures are objective focussing on work performance and requirements of the job and that no unlawful discrimination occurs in your recruitment and selection process because of a candidate’s sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation and religion or belief, pregnancy, maternity, marriage and civil partnership and also gender reassignment. As an employer, you can also be held responsible for discrimination by your employees for example, if an employee is abused or harassed with racist sexist remarks.

We can help you develop or review your recruitment policies to avoid the pitfalls of poor practice. For example we can review your recruitment process and help develop management skills within your organisation for interviewing and selecting the right candidate for the job. We can also help you with your job descriptions, your contracts of employment and perform equality audits.
