Hiring process

Types of recruitment and roles

Permanent recruitment for Management, Technical and Business support roles, Nationwide.

Our customer is growing at a rapid rate and as such, have a volume of vacancies across their installations business from Solar Roofers and EV Electricians through to Compliance, Team, and Operations Management, plus Director level roles.

We work closely with the hiring managers, who will call or email to inform us of current requirements, enabling us to gain as much information as we can by going through the roles, salaries, benefits, interview dates and ensure we are clear on the person specification to best match their requirements.

Volume recruitment – Technical and Business Support roles

We have recruiters focused on higher volume technical and office support roles, who advertise the roles across all social media channels and job boards, search CV databases, and contact anyone suitable on our own database to carry out thorough interview screening with potential applicants to assess suitability and fully brief them on the role and company.

If they are deemed suitable, we then take them through our compliance process, gaining copies of any qualifications, driving licence and ID, RTW etc. They are then booked onto a client assessment day and receive a formal email interview confirmation.

Headhunting and Recruitment – Management and Specialist roles

We have recruiters who focus on Management and Specialist roles for the business and our Managing Director, Claire Lee works on Director level roles. We discuss the vacancy in detail with the hiring manager, to understand what type of experience and the person they require, what the interview process will look like, the overall package, any additional benefits, and then go to market to find them suitable candidates. 

We initially utilise our database of industry specific candidates to assess if any of these candidates are the right cultural fit for the business, then we also look to headhunt for suitable candidates utilising our industry contacts and LinkedIn.

Building a new client relationship

Prior to working with this client, we visited their offices in the South-East to meet some of the senior management team and build up a good understanding of the business, their growth plans, its people and their culture.

On a weekly basis, for volume recruitment we hold a Teams meeting with the hiring managers, where we provide a tracker of candidates who have attended assessment days, fill ratios and discuss upcoming locations for assessment days, discussing any feedback, new requirements and any issues from either side can be raised then.

For Management and Specialist roles we have a weekly catch up with the hiring manager to discuss outstanding CVs, interviews arranged, candidate feedback, any offers and new requirements or focus areas.

"Multitask are able to provide varying levels of candidate for our rapidly expanding business, ensuring not only do they hold the correct qualifications and experience but that they are the right cultural fit. The team are professional yet down to earth and are extremely motivated, a real pleasure to work with. Keep up the hard work!"

Efficient Recruitment Process

When the client provides a detailed job description, Multitask Personnel starts by checking their existing database for relevant candidates or those on standby. We also send out mailshots from the database and place adverts on our own website, social media pages, and relevant job boards to maximize exposure.

Additionally, Multitask Personnel offers a "recommend a friend" scheme for current workers to refer friends for open roles, incentivised with gift vouchers. All applications are screened by a recruiter, and suitable candidates are invited for face-to-face interviews or video calls to assess their experience and suitability for the role.

Comprehensive Candidate Verification

Once suitable applicants are identified, we collect right-to-work details, including passport or birth certificates, proof of address, proof of national insurance number, and previous work references if requested.

Temporary workers are also required to complete a full registration pack, which includes a medical questionnaire and criminal record check. The formatted CVs of suitable candidates are then sent to the hiring manager for review. If the client wishes to arrange an interview, Multitask Personnel liaises with the candidate to schedule an interview that suits both parties.

Smooth Onboarding and Ongoing Support

Upon successful selection, candidates are booked in for an induction on site, which includes online training along with physical training for the role. Multitask Personnel maintains regular communication with the candidates, contacting them a few days before their contract starts to ensure their availability and address any questions or queries.

After their first shift, candidates are followed up to check on their experience and their plans to continue. Placed workers are given the contact details of their account manager at Multitask Personnel and are encouraged to reach out with any queries, which are responded to promptly, including evenings and weekends if required. The account manager maintains a strong rapport with the client’s management team and aims to visit sites regularly for client reviews and to address any queries from temporary workers.
