Looking for the right candidate to work in your business

Posted on February 18, 2020 at 9:35 pm

Often when people first start up their own business, they must do a lot of the work themselves. Once the business starts to grow, there may come a time when they need to look to either employee someone or use a sub contractor to work with them.  This could be for anything from marketing through to managing all the accounts and doing the books etc.

As a business owner it can be extremely daunting taking someone on to work with you if you have never done it before. You are having to let someone else into your business and therefore you need to be able to trust them and know that you can rely on them to do a good job.

It may be that they will be customer facing, so what they say or do will have a big effect on your reputation. Ideally you may want to find someone that you already know or have worked with before, but this may not always be possible. When you come to choose what type of person to take on you need to have a clear idea of what responsibilities you will be giving them. Take some time to interview them properly and never skimp on getting references.
