When it comes to the challenges faced by financial planners, one issue that comes up again and again is recruitment.
This is true both at a wider level across the profession in terms of attracting new talent, but also at an individual firm level.
In this video, Standards International founder and director Michelle Hoskin provides her top tips for recruiting the best possible team.
She talks about having a clear idea of what it is you're looking for, and how the vacant role fits in with the vision of your business.
Michelle discusses ways to find your ideal candidates, and going beyond traditional recruitment agencies to maximise awareness of the job profile across a number of channels.
She goes on to look at filtering candidates, and being mindful of the factors that can affect the selection process.
She also covers how to structure the interview process by using a mix of phone-based and face-to-face interviews, as well as trials and office days, in order to "pre-load" the process to find and secure your ideal candidate.
