How we work - 5 steps to recruitment success:
STEP 1. Job Brief
Our specialist retail recruiter will take a detailed job brief from you to understand the targeted skills and personal attributes required to ensure the new recruit compliments your vacancy, business and team. We will discuss your employment proposition and how it relates to the current retail job market and what the business aspirations are that might influence your hiring decision for the vacancy.
STEP 2. Talent Search Strategy
We will outline a talent search strategy which is likely to include:
- Targeted database segmentation and contact
- Placement of advertisements on the Retailworld exclusive retail job board - with daily job alerts sent to job seekers
- Other Job boards - Retailworld will place well-written, targeted job advertisements on leading retail job boards in Australia and NZ. External job advertisements may be up the value of $700 per advertisement
- Social platforms - Retailworld has a dedicated digital marketing function that drives digital campaigns to specially target retail candidate traffic to our website. Clients that have retail jobs listed with us get to benefit from our approach and retail connections across the retail market in Australia and NZ.
STEP 3. Candidate Selection
A rigorous screening process will be activated to ensure only appropriate candidates are presented to you. Your retail recruiter will screen a high volume of resumes to identify the most appropriate to complete a phone screen and then book for a one-on-one candidate interview. The candidate interview explores resume detail, review of work history and personal fit to the role and organisation skill and requirements. There may be specific competency-based questions suited to the role. Once identified, a shortlist (usually 1-3 resumes) of successful candidates will be presented to you for an interview.
STEP 4. Client Interview
We will facilitate your interview and afterwards take feedback from both you and the candidate. During the interview, we encourage you to dig into any ideas that we have identified as areas to explore. While you are reviewing the candidate's suitability remember to be selling your organisation's employment proposition - candidates can be customers too! Ultimately finish the interview with the candidate leaving the job interview wanting your job (regardless of your opinion of them).
STEP 4. Reject and Accept
Retailworld will manage the candidate rejection process for any candidates that don’t make the cut. Our job is to let them down tactfully while still positioning your business as a great place to work (and shop). If you have constructive feedback for the candidate that might help their ongoing retail job search or interview experience it’s a good idea to share that feedback with us.
We facilitate the job offer and start date on and then confirm candidate details so that you can send the contract directly to them.
STEP 5. Candidate Care - Your Placement Guarantee
Let’s share the commitment to a successful outcome! We trust that you have an engaging onboarding process and that your new employee is thriving in their new role. We contact the placed candidate and you over the first 3 months to check-in on how they are going, ensure that the opportunity and candidate presented is living up to expectations. Usually (over 85% of the time) everyone is happy, however, sometimes for reasons beyond all our control the person leaves your business - check out our Terms of Trade you should qualify for our replacement guarantee!
