Introduction

Recruitment Report In this piece of work I shall explain the current recruitment process at Chester Zoo and what happens at each stage of the recruitment process. Next, I will outline possible improvements to the recruitment process so that it can then improve stages to make their recruitment process better and more reliable. The recruitment process is vital at Chester zoo because at the busiest times of the year the zoo can employ up to 400 people at a time. If Chester zoo get this process wrong then it may be that at busy times of the year they haven't got enough staff to deal with customer demand and also if they hire too many staff then they would be paying for services that they don't need. At Chester Zoo it is easier to get new staff then fire staff that you have already got as when the zoo takes on a new recruit they will have to teach them their new job, show them around the workplace and also give them training and all of this costs money so the zoo would be losing valuable money. Also the new recruit would not be able their job as efficiently as the senior employees as they won't have that much experience. ...read more.

Also, the zoo should think about giving the new employee a two week probation period to see if the employee can actually cope with the responsibility and whether the zoo think the employee can hold the position and work effectively and integrate to work with the zoo team. Application Form An application form is a list of questions that are in the structure of a form which the potential new employee would have to fully answer. They would have to answer questions like how they would be suitable for the job, what are their hobbies and interests etc. The person filling in the application form would also need to give their full name and address, their date of birth and also their National Insurance number and past career experience as this would be vital to finding out who would be suitable for short listing. With the Application form the applicant would have to attach their curriculum vitae. At present Chester Zoo sends the application forms to the people who replied to the job advertisement through the post and encloses a postage paid for envelope so the applicant can send the application form back. The zoo uses one application form for all jobs advertised. At this stage of the current recruitment process the improvements that can be made to the recruitment process are that instead of sending out the application forms in the post they could use their website to advertise jobs. ...read more.

Conclusion

Improvements the zoo could make to the interview process is that they could interview all the people who have got through to the interview process over the phone first and then they could pick out the people who did better then the others and invite them for a face-to-face interview. Interviewing a candidate is a very crucial part in the recruitment process so it maybe better if the zoo hired an external interviewer who has had lots of experience to make them conduct the interview. The zoo could give the interviewer a checklist of what the role they are recruiting for requires and then the interviewer would give them the best candidate. When you get somebody else to do the interview process for then it works better as then the results you get are accurate and are not of clouded judgment because the interviewer has had a lot of experience and knows exactly what to look for in an interview situation. Induction and training An induction is given to a new employee when they first start work. They are shown around the business premises and are introduced to their co-workers. They are also given information on how the business runs and background information e.g. when the company was founded and who is the owner etc. This is called an induction. ?? ?? ?? ??
