Hiring staff

There's a lot to consider when hiring employees and it can be a daunting process. Lay the foundations for a mutually rewarding relationship and feel secure by using the correct documents when making your first hire.

Start the employment hiring process off with a clear Job description or specification. Take care not to use discriminatory wording and make sure to list the skills and abilities you need for the role. Use an Offer of employment letter to set out the terms of employment clearly and deal with employment pre-conditions. Ask your new hire to sign a Contract of employment to finalise acceptance of the offer of employment and avoid legal disputes in the future.
