Simple steps to meeting your recruitment needs

  • 1. Employer Requirements

    Before the selection process, the BJC staff will communicate or meet with the employer in order to understand the employers requirements. This includes the employer's expectation of the job, the job description, the terms and conditions and the person specification.

  • 2. Job specification

    Following step one above, a job order form is completed with the employer and provides a comprehensive description of the job description, i.e. salary, hours and other relevant information, and the profile of the person required. This information is used as a method of informing job seekers about the vacancy and is also used as part of the potential candidate matching process.

  • 3. The Selection Process

    Once the details of the vacancy are agreed and the Job Order complete, BJC staff begin the process of identifying potential candidates. From working with clients staff can quickly identify individuals that match the job and the person specification. Our staff contact the clients to discuss the vacancy and the details of the job. If they are suitable they are selected as potential candidates.

  • 4. Potential Candidates

    Screening of potential Candidates by experienced staff of the BJC placement team. This step involves staff meeting with our clients to discuss the job vacancy and screen any suitable candidates, using the job and person specifications, in order to make a shortlist of potential candidates for consideration for interview by the employer.

  • 5. Interview and Selection

    A shortlist is drawn up and the employer is given a selection of CV's. From the shortlist of CV's the employer selects the candidates they wish to call for interview. The BJC staff will contact the candidates and arrange to set up interviews with the employer and if necessary, the BJC can provide interview facilities. And if successful the BJC Staff will follow up with the employer to discuss how the placement is working out.

An employee with a disability on the scheme has the same conditions of employment as other employees.

These include:

  • social insurance (PRSI) contributions
  • tax deductions
  • annual leave

The employer must pay the employee with a disability the going rate for the job. This must be at least the statutory minimum wage. These terms and conditions of employment should be set out in the employee’s contract.
