Attract The Right Talent Through Your Brand – Australia’s Affordable Employment Agency

Is your SME is struggling to attract & target talent, you will need to think about its appeal to candidates. Including whether its employer brand is compelling to others.

Your firm’s ‘brand’ is composed of the values that underpin your business’s culture and how it operates.

A powerful employer brand is therefore vital. And it isn’t just there to lure those who may have never heard of your company before. In fact, there may be many suitable potential employees among your long-time existing customers.

Why you should Attract and Target talent through your brand?

Here are a few reasons to create and maintain a strong employer brand.

  • It attracts more candidates – So if you concentrate on your employer brand, you will be able to attract applicants to your future vacancies, website or online campaigns – and it doesn’t have to be too difficult. If applicants have heard good things about your firm or seen an advertisement online highlighting the benefits of working for your organisation, they are more likely to want to find out more. Start a Facebook page, update it often and create a buzz.
  • It encourages referrals – An organisations brand is not only about how you market to and handle new candidates. It’s also about how you treat your current workforce, clients and customers. If your employees are happy in their roles at your company, they are more likely to say all of the right things about their brand to their friends, family and jobseekers. The opposite is also true, and they will likely discourage others from applying.
  • It helps to find like-minded applicants – An organisations brand should demonstrate the values, ethics and culture behind your business – and by communicating the right messages about what your brand truly stands for, you will be able to better attract likeminded individuals.

By hiring people who understand and identify with your brand

And see your vacant position as more than just a job, also truly believing in the importance of what your company does, you can improve retention and as a result, not have to spend so much time and money on continually hunting out new talent.

Younger employees are attracted to positions that offer a culture of continual growth and instant feedback. Sometimes even valuing these aspects of a role over salary. This age group are also particularly brand-conscious, developing an attractive brand image will encourage them to consider your organisation.

Perth: Interview Tips To Win The Job

From The Recruitment Alternative. Australia’s Affordable Recruitment Agency.

Are you in the process of job-seeking in Perth? If so, you would have noticed that is a lot of companies looking for Business Development Managers, Receptionists, Research and Development Leaders, Accountants, Warehouse Workers, etc. That’s really good news! However, it does also mean that a lot of candidates will be applying for the same jobs, which means competition.

Here are some Interview Tips from The Recruitment Alternative to be prepared for the competitive recruitment market:

Body Language

Communication experts tell us that only about 10% of our communication is represented by what we say. Another 30% is represented by our sounds and 60% by our body language!

Obviously, what you say at an interview will go a long way to securing you the job. However, how you say things also plays an extremely important role. In fact, some experts strongly contend that how you say things is more important. During your interview, be sure to:

  • Maintain a confident posture by sitting up straight and keep your hands relaxed in front of you (crossed arms projects being closed off)
  • Use natural hand gestures while speaking – when resting, face your palms up as it projects honesty and engagement
  • Nod your head while listening and maintain eye contact
  • Avoid fidgeting as it conveys nervousness and can seem unprofessional

Prepare Answers

Highly effective interviewees develop their skills through practice and preparation. One of the keys to success is to know what things to prepare before the interview. Failure to know what to focus on before the interview often leads to people preparing the wrong things. This can actually harm your performance.

The key to preparation is knowing that all employers want to know the following key things about you:

  • Do you have the skills, knowledge, and experience to do the job?
  • Are you the sort of person they can work with? In other words, what sort of person are you like at work?
  • What are your motivation levels like? What are your motivators and de-motivators?

Preparing answers to these three questions means that you will be able to answer virtually any question put to you! No more having to wade through hundreds of practice questions.

Demonstrate Your Research

Adding to being prepared to answer any question, in your preparation you should also research the company. Demonstrating at an interview that you’ve done a little research never fails to impress the interviewer. The rule of thumb is the higher the position you’re going for the more you should know about the company and the industry. Any questions you can ask about the company during the interview is also helpful and shows you are taking an interest in a potential future employer.

Things To Avoid

Important things to avoid during an interview are:

  • Arguing – avoid arguing even if you know you are right, you may want to demonstrate your knowledge by arguing your point. It only demonstrates that you are predisposed to arguing and can look unprofessional depending on the circumstances
  • Being negative about yourself – don’t put yourself down during interviews or downplay your abilities. Interviews are about selling yourself and highlighting your strengths and how you would be an asset to the business.
  • Don’t interrupt the interviewer or talk over them – we often hear that interviewers get frustrated when they are confronted with a talkative interviewee who interrupts or ‘waffles on’
  • Being fake – in an attempt to demonstrate being cheerful or have a pleasant disposition interviewee can amplify certain traits such as smiling excessively, laughing too much, nodding too much, etc.
  • Unprepared questions – some questions may come up organically during the course of the interview. At the end of the interview, you will often be asked if you have any questions, try to have some prepared in advance from your research of the company to avoid asking potentially embarrassing questions or asking too many questions

After The Interview

Highly successful job candidates are alert to the fact that an interview often does not finish when you walk out of the interview room. One of the things these candidates do is adhere to simple but important post-interview actions that often yield great results, such as:

  • Following up at least three days after the interview – you can thank them for their time, reiterate your enthusiasm for the role and open the line for communication should they require any further information
  • Contact references and let them know to expect a call – tell them about the job you have applied for, the company who will be calling, etc.

We wish you the best of luck for your next interview!

Work-Life Balance In Your Business

One of the biggest drives for employees is whether or not they can achieve a work-life balance in their current or future place of employment. This factor often determines if an employee will leave or stay with an organisation. It’s not always easy to achieve in an unpredictable and fast-paced business environment. With so many other things to think about how can employers help create an environment to foster a work-life balance? Here are some great tips from The Recruitment Alternative:

Support and Encourage Time Off

A break from the daily grind will provide your employees with an opportunity to switch off and recharge their batteries. It can also help boost productivity when they return and improve mental health. As an employer, you are showing your employees you support them and care about them. Burnt out employees are less productive, unhappy and more likely to leave.

Employee Feedback

Encourage and implement ways your employees can provide constructive feedback. Improving work-life balance can be achieved when employees are able to contribute in other ways to the business. They could introduce new innovations ideas, provide a different perspective, suggest new ideas, etc.

Flexible Schedule

If you are in a position to offer flexible conditions such as working one day a week at home, adjusting start and finishing times so employees can pick up children from school, being open to swapping days/hours around depending on life demands, etc. Then why not do so? Have a set plan in place and a guide of how you would like things to proceed so it doesn’t feel like employees are ‘coming and going whenever they want’. It’s all about finding the right balance with give and take on both sides.

Open Communication Lines

Work-life balance can look different for everyone. Once you have established a general guide of how you will support your employees, be sure to leave your lines of communication open. If employees feel comfortable approaching you and discuss a change in their circumstances (which may require some flexibility or understanding) they will feel more supported and you’re less likely to lose a valuable employee.

Balanced employees tend to feel more motivated and less stressed out at work, which increases the overall company productivity and can reduce the number of conflicts among co-workers and management. Companies who gain a reputation for encouraging work-life balance have become very attractive to workers and will draw a valuable pool of candidates for new job openings.

Administration Jobs In Melbourne

Are you looking for an Administration job in Melbourne? If you are in the middle of a job search you will know that there are a lot of companies looking for Receptionists, Personal Assistants, Administration Officers, Legal Secretaries, etc. That’s really good news! However, it does also mean that a lot of candidates will be applying for the same jobs, which means competition.

How to stand out from the crowd?

Having an outstanding resume is the best possible reflection you can offer a recruiter. It’s so important for you as a candidate to make your resume stand out. Be sure to include

  • A strong opening statement or summary – What makes you unique? What can you offer an organization that someone else can’t?
  • List your key achievements – Perhaps you successfully handled all administrative functions when a new company was starting up. Noting this will make an impression far better than just basic work history. If you have done something impressive why not show it off?
  • Add ‘keywords’ – Many Recruitment Consultants and companies scan resumes for specific words and phrases. Try to use some of the language that is in the job ad, as long as it accurately reflects your background. For example, if a Recruitment Consultant or employer is looking for someone who has excellent customer service experience or switchboard operation experience be sure to note this in your resume
  • Note down any program proficiencies – by listing you have previous experience with a program or software such as MYOB or Microsoft Suite, gives you an edge on your resume. The more skills you have to offer the more appealing your application will be

As a job seeker, you can’t afford to ignore the digital extension of your professional self. Prospective employers, recruiters, and companies will most often than not search for you online. If you have a LinkedIn profile, it’s very likely to be the first result they find. If you have an account take some time to freshen it up, if you don’t have one, we strongly recommend you set on up!

Always Remember To Prepare!

There are so many things to prepare for its easy to get overwhelmed. Remember to keep in mind the following:

  • Look the part – personal presentation is very important. If you’re attending a job interview for an administration position, you wouldn’t dress as if you’re going to the gym or for a night out. This may seem obvious, but you would be surprised!
  • Research the company – know who you are applying to so that you can tailor your resume and be a step ahead if you are invited for an interview
  • Stay organised – if you are in the process of job-seeking you will, of course, be applying for more than one position. By keeping a note of who you have applied with will help you when you receive a call to discuss your application. You can also prepare answers for interview questions and relaxing techniques for nerves during interviews

Industry Research

Administration jobs are a part of almost all types of industries. If you’re unsure of what business you’d like to work for take some time to research where the industry demand is, if there is an area that you have an interest in, etc. It is also important to know ‘your worth’ so that if the salary is discussed you know what your expectations are. Researching the salary expectation for your industry will provide you with a general guide of what to expect. If you’re bringing a truckload of experience to the table don’t be shy to ask for a fair amount.

Australian Skills Shortage

We are sure you have heard in the news this week that Australia is continuing to face a skill shortage. These skills shortages are in all capital cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. Bolder reforms to the training sector have been suggested to tackle this issue quickly. The apprenticeship and traineeship numbers have fallen to a ten year low according to the Sky News. Research by ARG Group shows that “75% of employers are experiencing difficulties recruiting qualified or skilled workers”. There has been talk of a skills package overhaul worth 525 million dollars, however, how can this help you now when you need to find suitable staff?

Here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative to be prepared for the competitive recruitment market:

Move Quickly

It is critical to move quickly when you find a suitable candidate that ticks most, if not all of your boxes. Chances are they are also interviewing with the competition so moving quickly will avoid missing out on a potentially suitable applicant. Dragging your feet will only bring negative outcomes in this climate.

Competitive Salary Rate

One of the most common mistakes employers make is offering an inaccurate low salary package. By remaining competitive and offering more you will attract top talent! This will only boost your business in the long run with experienced and enthusiastic staff.

Company Culture And Brand

Smart business owners know the best investment any company can make is hiring the right people. A very common question asked by candidates to recruitment consultants is: “What is the company’s culture like?”

So, you have paid top dollar for you talented team of staff, but if your culture is less than ideal why will they stick around?  If your brand has a bad reputation this will also reflect poorly on your company and put off experienced workers.

Take some time to polish your brand and improve your company culture before you begin the recruitment process. Employees tend to stay longer if there is a positive workplace environment. In some cases, employees will accept less pay for a more supportive, relaxed and flexible workplace environment.

Research Your Competition

Be proactive when it comes to making sure you are competitive in the market before advertising your vacancy. A simple Google search can identify what your competitors are looking for in terms of experience, what salary range they are offering, what qualifications they are requesting etc. Once you have done this research highlight what sets you apart from them. Do you have career progression available? Do you offer a work life balance? Is your location central and easy to get to? What makes you different?

Work With A Recruiter

If you find yourself struggling in this competitive market to find a suitable candidate, you would have also noticed all the valuable time and energy you are wasting. Working with a recruitment agency such as The Recruitment Alternative won’t just save you time and money. We will leave no stone unturned in the recruitment process, we draw from our talent pools, industry networks, candidate databases and more!
