No matter how large or small your company is, at some point it will be time for you to hire your own assistant. It is a big task to onboard new staff. Large corporations have a human resources department that is responsible for screening incoming applications and recruiting staff for the company. But what if you aren’t a large corporation? What if you are a small to medium-sized business? What if you are a one-man (or woman) show and you don’t have time to go through the process? Placing a job posting online is only the first step, and it needs to be well-written and thorough, so even this first step takes a lot of effort! After that will come numerous resumes and responses…and then you have to start reading through them, picking potentials, setting up interviews… If it’s making you stressed out just reading this post, believe me: we understand! This is where a talent acquisition specialist may be a great service to you.
There are individuals who work as talent acquisition specialists as a full-time service. Others, like Toronto Assistant Services, offer it as one of many services. Megan has over 9 years of experience working in HR roles. She has interviewed and vetted hundreds of candidates both for organizations she has worked for in the past as well as now for her own company. Megan understands that while many clients see the benefit of working with Toronto Assistant Services and our employees, other professionals want to bring on their own employee, but don’t have the time to recruit them. Your candidate will not be from our pool of amazingly talented employees, but instead will be recruited and painstakingly screened exclusively for you as your employee. Megan will meet with you, deep-dive into your business and explore not only the services you offer but also the size, structure, and goals of your company. She will then recruit & interview candidates using our methods proven to allow only the most professional candidates shine. Megan works to find you the same type of assistant that she matches with her own clients: someone that has a similar work style and personality as you, as well as someone who knows your industry and is passionate about your success and the success of both of you as a team. Your chosen candidate will be vetted & screened thoroughly before they are introduced to you as your new assistant!
Our rates for talent acquisition are competitive with others in the Toronto area. Just remember to research and plan thoroughly before making the decision to hire an employee. There is a lot of expense involved and there are many rules & regulations that must be followed. When you are ready, we are here to help you!
