An Assessment Day might be the best approach for you if you're working against a tight timescale or you’d prefer to conduct the interview process outside of your office. An Assessment Day is also recommended when a market is busy and any delays in the talent search process risk you losing the best candidates.
Typically when recruiting, you are even busier than usual, so we recommend following the assessment day approach that we have developed. It requires 30 minutes of your time in advance and then two to three hours, ideally first or last thing in the day to conduct some initial interviews. The timing helps everyone manage their ‘day job’, so to speak. After initial interviews, you then progress two to three people to final interview.
