Because of the Covid-19 restrictions, companies all over the world had to adapt to a new reality and an increasing number of employees are working from home until the virus is under control. Although face to face interviews and meetings could still be delivered (but with social distancing measures in place), practices have been keen to look at offering our recruitment services as an online solution.
As First Practice Management, we take care of the end-to-end recruitment process, and we’ve adapted to a new environment, which required taking a realistic look at what learning outcomes were achievable.
We assess the role, promote the vacancy, assist in candidate selections, support interview days and manage all communications with candidates to relieve additional workload on the GP practice. Using digital technologies to connect you with your candidates, we can successfully deliver our remote recruitment service online.
Using digital tools like WebEx and Zoom, our Recruitment and Training Consultants have created an agenda for both individual and group interviews with all the information the candidates need in order to prepare for the interview and ensure they have the relevant technology;
The new virtual consultancy service can definitely work, and we have received positive feedback from Practices who have used it.
What our clients say
“I am extremely pleased that we decided to use your services to recruit a new practice manager. I was very impressed at our first meeting, by your extensive knowledge of general practice and the research you had already undertaken about our surgery. We were able to discuss our requirements in detail. Then Covid 19 arrived!!
Our plans had to be completely reviewed. You invested a lot of time in discussions with ourselves regarding options that could allow us to continue.
You accurately reviewed all of the candidate’s CV’s which helped with the recruiting process.
We completed the first round of interviews by Zoom, which you facilitated extremely well. The process of remote interviews worked surprisingly well, and we were pleased we had successfully completed that stage.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to other colleagues. I suspect that without your input we would have delayed the recruitment process. Instead, we have a wonderful new manager starting this summer.” Maria Frith – New Medical Practice
