Recruiting has a lot of challenges and during the process, you may be asking yourself, “Where do I begin my search? How can I compete? What does the perfect candidate look like?”
The first step to filing an open position is creating a clear request that you can pass along to your hiring manager, recruiting team, or PEO. Finding the right candidate is impossible without a clear, concise description of the role, important details, and expectations from your team.
To start, you’re going to need Vensure Employer Services’ free Hiring Manager Intake Form.
Our one-page, six-section form was designed for you to have a free resource to assist you time and time again, no matter what kind of position you are recruiting for. Once you download the Hiring Manager Intake form you will notice that each section is short and sweet. The sections are:
- Job Responsibilities and Skills
- Sourcing Criteria
- Interview Process
- And Next Steps.
The background section is not necessarily for candidate information, rather, it’s for the hiring manager to late out what the open position is in its simplest form.
Here, you’ll find items such as Title, Target Start Date, Manager, and more.
Job Responsibilities and Skills
While at first glance this section may seem self-explanatory, we took it a couple of steps further. Rather than just listing things that a candidate needs to have, we also have listed Nice to Haves, Success Drivers, and Career Trajectory.
We included these because we know how important longevity is when it comes to recruiting top talent. You don’t have the time or money to repeat the recruiting process over and over again for the same position.
If you know that you are in need of a good fit fast, don’t wait for candidates to come to you…go to them. This section allows you to list different titles and places you’re willing to actively recruit for.
As part of the sourcing criteria, we also provide an area for the hiring manager to list personality traits they believe are necessary to be effective on the team.
It’s guaranteed that a candidate will always ask the hiring manager about compensation. This section helps outline what the compensation looks like and what you’re willing to offer a candidate. It also lets you list any kind of bonus or equity.
There isn’t an interview process that is one-size-fits-all. In fact, the process could be different for each department of your company.
If this is the case, you’ll enjoy this section that allows you to write or type what your process is. You can even list all of the people you will need to assist you during the process.
Don’t worry if your methods change, you can always keep a clean copy of the form to re-use.
At this point, the hiring manager should be all set. Now that they know what they’re looking for in the recruiting process, they can begin to plan out the next steps.
The next steps are entirely up to whoever is using this form.
After downloading the Hiring Manager Intake Form and learn how useful it is, consider downloading some of Vensure Employer Services’ other free resources like our recruiting guide, evaluation form template, burnout handbook, and more.
