Football has been a huge part of my life from an early age. I was always found in a park kicking a ball around or at a game with one of my parents - one being a Chelsea season ticket holder, the other being Fulham, meant it was always good fun! However, I did not realise then how much of an impact football would have in helping me build a career in recruitment.
It’s real, it’s happening and it’s going to impact on several areas of established eco-system currently delivering advertising to the masses. Should you be concerned? …That all depends on the business you are in. If you work for a big network media agency, you may have reason for concern.
The move to bring recruitment resource in-house has been happening in media-land for many years. It makes a lot of sense for companies of a certain scale to employ dedicated resource for this and these people often work alone or in small teams and are under pressure to deliver. They are not viewed as a golden bullet to solve all the recruitment needs of the business, and are expected at times to engage with external specialists to help fill tricky positions.
Write a good job brief!
- Get the balance right between “the company”, “the role” and “the candidate” and make the brief clear and easy to decipher.
- Be highly prescriptive when specifying things the candidate must have, and feel free to state that without a specific skill or experience your application will not be successful.
- Break the document up into clear sections (the employer, the job, what you are looking for, and why it’s good to work there).
- Pitfalls: Say an appropriate amount about you as a company/employer. If you are e.g. Mediacom, people will know you, so don’t bang on about it. If you are e.g. Electric Glue, more explanation will be required.
- Pitfalls: Make sure the person reading your job spec knows precisely what you are after. It must be clear and obvious!
