About the book

Recruiting the right people is one of the most important activities organisations can undertake. Getting it right can mean fast, healthy growth and the fulfilment of business goals; getting it wrong can mean heavy costs, sinking morale and stunted growth. The Complete Guide to Recruitment is a practical self-help guide to best practice in recruitment. With international case studies demonstrating how recruitment contributes to business success, it covers every aspect of the recruitment process including: developing an effective recruitment strategy; relationship building for long-term hiring; assessing and selecting candidates; designing the contract of employment; and creating a great place to work. Also incorporating a broad range of sample adverts, contracts and assessment tests which are available to download and edit, The Complete Guide to Recruitment is ideal for companies of all types and sizes who want to attract and retain top talent.

Brian Wilkinson, Executive Board Member, Randstad NV

Having recruited literally hundreds of people over the years I have been in business, it is a pleasure to find a book aimed at taking the mystery out of recruitment for the non-professional recruiter, and provide a genuine hands-on guide. This is a superb tool for anyone needing to understand the mechanics of the recruitment process and a great resource for any business needing to recruit, whether seeking senior executives, scarce talent or high volume resource.
Graham Cove, Director of WiFi, Everything Everywhere

An accessible and comprehensive guide for non-professional recruiters, this book highlights not only how to go it alone but when to call in the experts! Importantly, recruitment is not considered in isolation but the wider issues of retention, engagement and assessment are also explored. It's an indispensable help for everyone who needs to get recruitment right first time.
Ann Swain, Chief Executive, APSCo (Association of Professional Staffing Companies)

All recruitment should be done by a professional yet this book provides the advice of a professional recruiter without the cost. A logical framework, easy to use process and excellent tips from years of experience in the field, this book will help you get the results you need from the daunting task of getting recruitment right as well as save you money!
Juliet Lloyd, Clinical Nurse Lead, Castle Partnership
