Now that your brand new ‘19 reg plates are here, March is set to be, as always, a busy period for many dealerships. So while you’re busy pairing up happy customers with their dream car, maybe it’s time to give your recruitment strategy a refresh for success too?

So – want to push your recruitment strategy up a gear? Consider these 3 points below:

Know what you need

Have an in-depth understanding of the role you are advertising for. If you have more knowledge on the skillset needed, and type of person, you’ll quickly be able to determine who has the experience required to successfully fulfill the role. The job description you create will also be more specific, improving the quality of candidates who apply.

Specify in your job description

A job description is the first insight a quality automotive candidate will have of your dealership. Don’t waste the opportunity to get them excited about the role you’re advertising. Create an effective, impactful description. Don’t bother including any arbitrary information – paint a picture of what the role entails and what success looks like.
