As your business grows, or as past employees move into new opportunities, developing simple ways to find staff for your business will become a top priority. Finding staff, posting job descriptions, sifting through resumés and the whole interview process can be time-consuming, costly, and daunting.
At Locimo, we’re all about simplifying the way your business can find staff. We connect leading retail and hospitality businesses with incredible candidates and give them ongoing support and exposure to make finding staff easy.
Follow these steps and you’ll have yourself an incredible new employee in no time at all.
Create a Locimo Brand Page
Every brand that joins the Locimo platform is given a brand page, your own landing page that allows you to share your brand's story and visually highlight your work environment and culture.
Updating your page is simple and it will remain on the website even if you don’t have any current job listings. Job seekers can follow your brand to receive updates about your company and new job listings.
For more tips on how to create an engaging brand page, read our blog here.
Create an accurate job listing
The best way to find the right candidate for your role is to be upfront about the position, experience required, working hours, and anything else that is a must-know about the role.
Be sure to include:
- A quick and easy job title
- Location of the position
- Employment type; full-time, part-time, casual
- The job description - The more detail you can give here, the better chance of attracting the right employee.
- Experience Required - Let candidates know what experience/training is provided
By following these steps, you’ll help eliminate candidates who don’t match your criteria before your search has even begun!
Post your job through the Locimo dashboard
Once you’re set-up on Locimo, you’ll have access to unlimited job listings. The best part is that each listing is saved and can be used for future job ads, or updated for different positions down the track.
You can post jobs easily by:
- Heading to your Locimo dashboard;
- Going to the ‘Job Listings’ tab;
- Pressing ‘Post a New Job Listing’;
- Follow the prompts and your job listing will be live to our audience in no time!
Share on socials
Amplify your role through social media. Once your job description is up on the Locimo platform, simply share the link to your social audience and they can quickly and easily apply through the platform.
Say no to paper resumés
As a retail or hospitality owner, a lot of the time hiring means applicants walking in-store with paper CVs and dropping them behind the counter. Having to read through a stack of resumes can be an arduous task. With Locimo, there is no need to ever see a paper resume again. All applications will come directly into your dashboard where you can sort, chat, and organise interviews.
Be prepared for the interview
Once you’ve chosen your shortlist of applicants, you’ll be gearing up for face-to-face interviews. Both your time and your candidate’s time are valuable, so ensure you come prepared with a list of questions you want to know.
Make sure you’re up-to-date on your HR policies around what you can and can’t ask during interviews.
