Our 6 Step System for Recruiting in The United Kingdom

Step 1 – Getting Started:  We establish the type of candidate you are seeking and your desired timeline for hiring. It is important that we take the time to get to know your company. We learn about your culture, goals, and work with your management team to align the recruitment search with your company’s objectives.  

Step 2 – Talent Research: After understanding your company’s goals for the talent search, we begin targeting The United Kingdom’s top talent sources and identifying the best candidates available. 

Step 3 – Early-Stage Interviews: We begin interviewing from our refined list of potential candidates to narrow the options to only the best matches for your open position. Our team then develops a final candidate pipeline and meets with your executive team to discuss which prospective employee will be the best fit for your company’s goals. 

Step 4 – Evaluating the Top Candidates: After performing comprehensive background checks and character references, we finalize our candidate evaluation process and bring our recommendations to the client’s executive board.

Step 5 – Candidate Selection: Once we have met with the executive team and decided on the best candidate for the role, we help the client with the salary and benefit negotiations before organizing and submitting the official offer letter to the candidate. 

Step 6 – Continued Support: Our team at GlobalPEO will continue to work with your executive team to deliver support for employee and team evaluations, development, and performance improvement throughout the lifespan of your partnership with the employee. 

The UK Recruitment Method

Since Brexit, EU citizens must apply for “settled status” in order to legally work in the country. It is highly important that you ensure that your potential employees have the legal right to work in the UK. You have the legal right to check their residency status before offering an applicant a job.

Your business also has the right to ask candidates to undergo a health check if it is legally required for the position for which they are applying. 

With GlobalPEO’s global recruitment service, you can get advantage of our in-country recruiting support and deep network of connections in the Australian market. 

United Kingdom's Anti Discrimination & Compliance Laws

UK law stipulates that employer’s cannot discriminate against employees on the basis of age, sex, race, ethnicity, or disability. These personal factors should not be publicly mentioned or discussed during the recruitment, hiring, and overall employment process.  The UK has set in place anti-discrimination laws that protect all employees from being terminated unfairly, with special considering payed to employees with more than two years of work with a single company.  GlobalPEO communicates directly with our clients to help expedite these processes and handle cases surrounding termination gracefully and with full compliance to UK business law. 

Hiring + Onboarding UK Employees

Employment contracts in the United Kingdom must clearly state the employees’ responsibilities, compensation details, benefits, grievance procedures, and requirements for termination. All offer letters, compensation details, and any document where employee income is discussed should be stated in British pounds. Most contracts also specify provisions relating to employee confidential information and non-compete restrictions.  It is the responsibility of the employer to deduct personal income tax and the national insurance contribution from their employees earnings through a nationally mandated system called Pay As You Earn, or PAYE.  GlobalPEO includes all these services along with everything else in the jurisdiction of international expansion in the UK through our Employer of Record service.
