Here at Aspire Cambridge, we can work with you to organise an open day or assessment centre for your recruitment needs. Our specialists can deal with all applicants for the roles you are recruiting for; they can select the best candidates for you, arrange the times of interviews and ensure that the candidates will arrive on time for their interviews. We can even help you on the open day itself with your interviews!
Open Days are a very popular solution for larger businesses looking to recruit multiple people for roles; but could an open day help you with your recruitment needs?
The idea behind an open day is to have a full day of interviews, this means that everyone who has shown an interest in working for you will be interviewed on the same day and although it can be very long and exhausting for those interviewing the candidates, it can be a very successful and beneficial day as you may find all the right candidates.
The benefit of an open day or assessment centre for recruitment is that you can take a whole day out of your diary instead of fixing interviews around work, and work around interviews which makes the whole process much easier.
The downside of an open day for recruitment may be that you are happy to invite everyone for interview and you may come across stumbling blocks, such as having people not show up, candidates that are not suitable and late arrivals. This results in the candidates that arrived on time having to wait around to be seen for an interview. However, with the proper planning and strict deadlines for the day, these obstacles can be overcome and give way to an extremely fruitful day.
Some companies use an open day to showcase their own business to the candidates too, offering tours of the business and giving out information about themselves. This allows the candidates to gain a real feel of the company they may be working for, as well as the people they will be working with.
If you think an open day could be the solution for your recruitment needs, but are looking for some professional support and experience, then drop our specialist team a line – they will be only too happy to help you organise a successful open day to help you recruit!
