As a new HR manager, it can be challenging to find the right candidates to fill your company's job vacancies. At BigWig Headhunters we understand this struggle, which is why we've compiled a list of five steps to help new HR managers hire top talent in Malta.

1. Define Your Hiring Needs

The first step in hiring the best candidates is to determine what you're looking for in a potential hire. Identify the necessary skills, experience and values that are essential for the job. Evaluate previous staff members who have worked in the same role to learn from their successes and mistakes. This will help you identify the gaps in your team that need to be filled with new talent.

2. Create a List of Candidates

Once you know what you're looking for in a candidate, create a list of potential candidates. Draft a clear job description that details the job requirements and company culture. Distribute this job description on relevant job portals and professional networks, such as LinkedIn.

3. Hire a Headhunter

If you're struggling to attract high-quality candidates, don't worry! There are headhunting agencies that specialize in finding top talent, like ours. These agencies have access to extensive databases of talented workers and can provide you with a list of candidates that meet your specific hiring needs. Partnering with a headhunter can save you time and effort while increasing your chances of finding the perfect candidate. 

4. Conduct Interviews

Once you've received applications it's time to conduct interviews. Prepare a list of questions that will give you a comprehensive understanding of the candidate's skills, experience and personality. Conduct the interview in a comfortable setting and make sure the candidate is at ease. Consider conducting in-person interviews to get a better sense of the candidate's behaviour and fit with your company culture. 
5. Make an Offer
If you've found the perfect candidate, it's time to make an offer. Ensure that the offer includes all relevant information, such as salary, benefits and holiday allowances. Be transparent about what is expected of the candidate in their role to avoid any misunderstandings. Communicate the company's culture and values to give the candidate a sense of what it's like to work for your organisation.

Hiring the right candidates is crucial for the success of your organisation. By following these five steps, new HR managers can hire top talent with confidence. Remember, finding the right candidate takes time and effort, but partnering with a headhunting agency like BigWig Headhunters can make the process easier and more efficient.
