Identifying A hiring need
Perhaps you have decided a position is open, perhaps you’re not so sure or you want to know what the current market trends are. As a business that lives and breathes recruitment in the legal and professional sector, a preliminary discussion with a Star Anise consultant can help you gain a clearer picture of your business needs.
A dedicated consultant arranges a “no-obligation” consultation with you to gain a thorough understanding of your hiring needs. This stage is critical to appreciate what really matters to you, the employer, so that we can personalise the search to your needs.
Client meetings are ideally conducted in person, to the extent of your availability and location (Hong Kong), or via telephone or Skype conference.
We provide expert guidance and advice on the type of candidate that would be suited to this role, the additional qualities that you should look out for and hiring or salary trends in the current market climate.
A Star Anise consultant conducts a comprehensive search of our candidate database. Ongoing advertising and referrals over time will draw in other candidates.
Having met you and discussed your requirements, your dedicated recruiter can critically assess the suitability of candidates for your further review, saving substantial time for you in the screening and preliminary interview process. From there, you select which candidates you would like to interview.
We work closely with our clients every step of the way in order to keep the interview process both (a) focused and (b) on time. We seek constructive feedback from both parties and exchange the feedback to one another. This makes for a more rewarding and beneficial experience to employer and candidate alike.
Over the course of interviews, you narrow down the candidates to final stage before deciding to make an offer.
Negotiating the terms of offer is a highly sensitive process and a critical stage to success – any omission of information, delay in, or a total lack of communication from either side can result in misunderstanding or even a total breakdown in the negotiation process.
Our expert consultants can give you guidance to ensure a smooth process at every step of the way and reach a successful conclusion to offer and acceptance.
