hire the best security engineers

Let’s cut to the chase. A lot of companies think that engineers should be queuing at the door to join them because they are a fantastic company and they are growing, they put out adverts on job boards and on social media. These are only seen by those actively looking. Reality is that most of the best security engineers are either secure in their current role but open to something better, or they are in transition and have multiple opportunities to consider. As such, you need to offer something different and/or better to get the best in front of you. Here are the facts: The security engineer market is busy, there is a severe skills shortage, there is huge disconnect between...

recruitment costs graph

Do you know how much your company loses from the departure of an employee? Do you know the recruitment costs to hire a replacement? How about the recruitment cost of hiring the wrong replacement? Calculating these costs isn’t simple; you have to look at a number of factors including reduced productivity, angry customers, and lost investment. Of course these aren’t specifically monetary values either. Regardless, these headaches can eventually prove costly both in time and expense. This is especially true in the hiring of a wrong candidate in the market I specialise in – Fire & Security Recruitment – where there is currently a large skills shortage.  Wrong decisions can...

How to interview well

Download Interview Questions to Ask Interviewing can be one of the most demanding and important parts of the recruitment process. We are often surprised at the amount of employers that don’t know how to interview successfully, instead opting to wing it. Knowing how to interview successfully will lead you to recruit the best candidates, therefore it is important to consider your interview strategy to ensure a successful interview process. When interviewing, each party involved needs to find a balance between selling themselves and gathering enough information to make the best, most informed decision. Interviewers sometimes forget this and go too heavy on grilling a candidate and forget...
