Finding the Right People
Compared to most companies our size, our recruitment process is fairly simple and organic, after all, it is a family business.
How We Advertise Our Roles
We often promote from within, however when we are looking for someone to bring a new life and fresh perspective into the business, you’ll typically see our job listings on Seek and TradeMe. You will be able to either apply through the respective website, or we will provide you with an email address you can apply to – it is always expected that you send a covering letter and resume through to us.
It’s important to note that we normally advertise for three weeks to a month and take some weeks after that to review applications after the listings have expired. In some cases, we will review applications right away, just as they come through.
Each application is passed on to the manager responsible for the department seeking a new employee for them to then review.
If you are a successful candidate, you will receive a phone call from one of our managers to carry out a phone interview to further qualify your application. If this is successful, one of our executive assistants will be in touch to arrange a time for a formal interview to take place and will provide you with any supplementary information.
It’s recommended that when you turn up to your interview, you are on time, composed, prepared and well-dressed, of course.
Offer of Placement
Once your interview is complete, the interviewer will advise you on further action, which could also include a second interview – role dependent.
If successful once the interviews have concluded, you will receive a phone call and formal letter expressing an offer of employment. You will then be required to come in and retrieve your employment contract, in which the interviewer will talk you through any detail needed to be covered. You will then be given some time to review the contract before accepting the role.
Once you have accepted this offer, your first day and week of work will be comprised of job training, and a company induction – taking you through the company history, vision, values and mission. Your manager will also take you on a tour throughout the group to familiarise you with our facilities and give you an opportunity to meet our people, including our managers and, of course, the Giltrap family.
