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. Use a job offer 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.
