Avoiding Future Issues
The worry is therefore that you hire precipitately, which may not lend itself to a long-lasting successful hire.
Every new recruit presents the opportunity to increase the calibre of the whole team. This chance can be missed if you rush the process and take on someone slightly better yet not really everything you need now and into the future.
If the role is to carry out too many responsibilities and tasks that cover different positions, the risk is that training will be so long that you will not see the benefits for months, and in the end, you compromise.
If the role is more senior the salary must reflect this, likewise, if you want lots of experience, otherwise you will not attract the right calibre of candidates and your investment in training or adaptation may be in vain.
Start your process correctly. Assess the skills and experience of the whole team, consider the next stage of development of your practice and understand your P&L, in particular what drives profit. Finally, review the current Job Description you have in your CQC files and update it as required. All this will lead to employing someone who will fulfil the needs of the practice and not just provide a quick fix.
