The Offer Stage

The Offer Stage

Recruitment is often as much about selling your organisation to a candidate as it is about the candidate selling themselves to your organisation.
At the offer stage candidates must feel they are being offered a role with an organisation that values them and that aligns with their personal values.
Although it is one of the final stages of the recruitment process, the offer stage can instantly change the candidate's views and feelings about the organisation. Even when a good impression has been created during the earlier stages. 
All recruitment takes effort and it is important that the process does not fall down at the final hurdle.

The Bright team's tips

"Recruitment can be a long and difficult process and it is important that it ends on a high note.

Often you will only have one candidate that is suitable for your job post so a lot rests on them accepting an offer.

The key to getting offers right, time and time again, is to be well prepared before speaking with the candidate."

"Many recruiters are great at making their organisation look attractive to candidates. This effort needs to not end at the offer stage so it is important that it is a carefully planned and organised process.

Always consider that a candidate may have another offer on the table and that, if this is your preferred candidate, you may have to fight for them."
