Virtual Personal Assistants For Recruiters; More Focus On Sales.
The recruiter’s dream, an admin assistant, but virtually.
- Have Job specs written for you
- Have your VA screen and sift through CV’s on your behalf
- Correspondence with candidates & clients regarding the interview process
What a Virtual Personal Assistant can do for you:
Recruiting is one of the most stressful jobs in the world. KPI’s, hard sales, targets, people management & admin, admin, admin. To be a successful salesperson, you need to be on top of everything all the time, juggling multiple things at once and a lot of the time the aspect that tends to catch up with recruiters is the administration. Just imagine not having to screen every single CV yourself? Think about how much time you would have to fully focus on connecting with clients and candidates and inevitably generate more sales? You’d be able to educate your VA on exactly what it is you’re looking for. That way, in the morning you can spend more time on searching the job boards and LinkedIn, headhunting, rather than resourcing.
Is there anything more stressful than doing everything in your power, and then hoping your candidates get to their interviews on time, or even arrive at all? As a recruiter, probably not. Besides pushing for the best deal for you, your candidate and your client, managing people can be a tedious task. Have your VA be in direct contact with them at all times, ensuring they have the correct address, that they’ve anticipated things like traffic and distance etc. Your VA can brief your candidate on the interview process, the company culture and debrief them as well. Reporting back to you with the necessary information. Besides changing your life and allowing you more time on your hands, a VA can also assist with:
- The development and updates of job descriptions and job specifications
- Help prepare recruitment materials and post jobs to appropriate job boards/online platforms
- Assess applicants’ skill sets
- Input information into the CRM
- Draft Emails
- Respond to emails
- Setup and populate your calendar/organise your schedule & more
