1. Draft your job advertisement:
Include information about:
Your Firm: Who you are, Where you are, What you do, Why you do it. Try How you do it too – interesting thought!
The Role: Full-time, part-time or casual, title of role, start date, hours.
Duties and Responsibilities: What, specifically, will the new employee be doing?
Qualifications and Skills: What qualifications should the new employee hold? What skills should they have? Think accuracy, hardworking, enthusiastic…
Mention required experience too.
Instructions on how to apply: Be very specific. If a potential employee cannot read to the end of the advert and follow instructions, you have sorted out the wheat from the chaff already and you need not consider them at all.
Something like: send a cover letter and resume to (email address)
Closing date for applications – Facebook ads run for a month., but you can alter that date if you like.
Include somewhere: Only short- listed applicants will be contacted – you may get so many applications that you find it really time-consuming to respond to all.
TIP: Don’t be afraid to look at other, similar advertised roles – they can often help you with wording & identifying what you actually want.
