The Basics of Recruitment for NFPs
Monday, 16th April 2012 at 10:36 am

Getting the right person into a job can be a time consuming and difficult task.

But a new step-by-step guide on the basics of recruitment has been compiled by the Victorian Government’s Office for the Community Sector to make the task easier for Not for Profits and community organisations.

The Office for the Community Sector says it hopes that the guide, in conjunction with the other workforce resources on the Office for the Community Sector website, will assist community organisations in all their recruitment needs.

The new guide includes a step-by-step approach to hiring new staff, commencing with the vital task of developing an accurate position description to the final step of welcoming a new starter.

The guide also includes information on what organisations need to know about job advertising, how to conduct an interview and how to select the right person for the job.

The guide is part of a wider selection of resources published by the Office for the Community Sector which aim to assist the community sector with their human resources including:

  • The Community Sector Workforce Capability Framework
  • Best practice recruitment and selection – a tool kit for the community sector
  • Attracting and retaining staff in rural and regional Victoria

The Office for the Community Sector says it was established in the Department of Planning and Community Development to support the Victorian Not for Profit community sector to be sustainable into the future.

According to the Office for the Community Sector website, it has two key responsibilities: driving cross-government activity that reduces unnecessary burden related to government accountability and compliance requirements; and supporting the sector to build capacity to continue to be responsive to the needs of Victorians.

The new basics of recruitment guide is available to download here or visit the Recruitment and Retention page of the DPCD website.
