How To Hire For A Senior Role

Mar 9, 2018

When considering moving your business, the available local talent pool should be always at the forefront of your mind, which is why the best offices for sale Liverpool has to offer might be a good choice. Hiring for entry and mid-level roles is one thing, but hiring for senior roles is another, and without the right person leading the way in your company, the successes for everyone involved is at risk. Here are some ideas from Small Biz Trends which might help you to identify the right candidate for the role.

First of all it’s important that you like the person. You’ll usually get a gut feeling in the interview and sense of how well you could get on with one another. It’s important that you do like the person, because, as the head of the business, you’ll be engaging most with those in senior positions within your company.

Make sure the person your hiring is willing to enter the position with an open mind and is willing to adapt in the role, especially if they're already in a senior role. Not all companies are the same, so one size does not fit all when it comes to management style.

When you have a mass of CVs to look over for the role, it can be easy to dismiss  applicants with little senior management experience and go for someone who has been in a similar role for a number of years. However, this isn't always the best choice for your business. Talented newcomers may need nurturing in the the position, but they could reap unknown rewards. Hiring from within will also demonstrate career prospects for workers, leading to greater staff loyalty and less turnover.

In applying for roles, it's not all about money or status for some applicants - they may be more interested in a role that is challenging and exciting. To be able to bring a truly competent employee on board, you may need to consider that you are pitching to them as much as they are pitching to you.
