As part of our range of services for family businesses, we have combined our knowledge, experience and contacts within the sector with the recruitment expertise of partners, NXT Recruitment to bring you a unique service for your family business recruitment needs.
Finding the right talent for the right roles can have a hugely positive impact on a business, helping to achieve growth and change. However this is not usually a straightforward, easy process. It can take some time to correctly identify what talent a business needs before commencing a search.
There are many factors that come into play when recruiting external talent for a family business. As well as financial and strategic implications, there can be emotional challenges too. Our knowledge and understanding of the various implications and processes involved gives us the expertise to help identify the key requirements whilst helping to smooth the journey.
KEY CONSIDERATIONS WHEN RECRUITING FOR A FAMILY BUSINESS
- Have clear needs for the new recruit been identified?
- Is everyone in agreement with these?
- Have the skills and capabilities of the new recruit been identified?
- Will the new recruit have operational autonomy?
- Will the new post offer a path for career progression?
- Are the business processes and policies well defined?
- Are you aware of the market price for your talent requirements?
How does the process work?
Like all good things, our recruitment process begins with a conversation. You may have a specific recruitment need already identified or you may think you have a people gap but aren’t sure how this will fit into the business.
We want to know more about your business and what your strategic aims are, related to your recruitment needs. We will work with you to identify those specific needs before passing a brief to our partners to commence the recruitment search. During the process, we are here to support you and provide any help or guidance you may need.
How do I begin?
If you’re a family business with a specific recruitment requirement or you have a more general enquiry, send us your details and we will arrange a conversation to explore your potential needs.
