If you need to hire a new employee for a maintenance position but have had poor luck with staff retention or not finding the right fit previously, it could be time to bring interview training into your maintenance recruitment strategy. The right strategy is make or break when it comes to recruiting new hires as you need to ensure you are adopting a different approach to the methods that have proofed less than 100% effective previously.
Naturally, there will be several parts to the maintenance recruitment process that work already and you feel comfortable with. For example, you could excel at assessing CVs against your checklist, but if your interview questions are too generic and not specific to the skills you want to recruit, you could fall short of getting the right hire at one of the most crucial stages of the process. This is why working with a reputable recruitment agency to learn first-rate interview training will help your business grow and give you maintenance recruitment skills you can use thereafter.
The types of areas covered by interview training include CV scoring methods, HR do’s and don’ts, shortlisting, engagement, arranging face to face or phone interviews and candidate packs containing employee case studies. Perhaps you have been stung by dishonest references previously but only realised in retrospect the discrepancy in the reference – make sure this never happens again!

When it comes to lift and escalator recruitment, you need to hone your recruitment style to the specific sector of engineering you are recruiting for as not all engineers are created equal. Asides from check their qualifications and asking the receptionist their impression of the candidate, there are other tips and tricks you can use to ensure your new lift and/or escalator engineer is going to perform well.
A Conscientious Nature
A lift engineer carries out a very important job when it comes to responding to emergency calls. Lifts are often featured highly on surveys of which kinds of phobias most people have because the lift engineer is the only person who knows what happens behind the proverbial scenes. That’s why good social skills are a top-rated skill for any prospective lift engineer to have. Pay attention to how well they understand the human impact of the work they do, how conscientious and self-aware they appear and finally, their ability to display empathy.
A Methodical Approach
While all engineers are likely to share a pool of soft skills such as being a ‘natural problem-solver’ and having great attention to detail, a lift engineer works within a very specific environment. Assess their disposition, how logically they tell a story without interruption and examine their job history to see if they display a genuine interest in wanting to continue within this field. Often, our instincts can tell us a lot about a person and whether they see a long-term future in their chosen career and looking for this trait helps to hone that instinct.
If you want additional support regarding interview tips or you are pressed for time, working with a lift and engineer recruitment agency can help you to get the right people in front of you.
If you would like to work with specialists in order to ensure you’re using your ability to examine a person’s qualities effectively regarding lift and engineer recruitment, get in touch with our team of recruitment team today.
Electrical engineering recruitment is complex and critical. The right choice must be made, corresponding qualifications must be proven and crucially, the role must be filled. While you will have lots of notes in mental and physical form to refer to, here are some soft and hard skills to bear in mind as you aim to make your hiring decision.
The candidates need to demonstrate the ability to think critically. This will become evident in their previous work anecdotes as well as by the way they answer other questions. Are they speaking in absolute terms with little nuance in their descriptions? Are they effectively describing the problems they spotted and the possible solutions they came up with? The ability to be precise and analytical is important.
This introduces the next skill nicely. It is of little value to be able to spot how to solve issues if you can’t effectively communicate your ideas. A strong communicator has the potential to excel in their career and demonstrates intelligence.
Often thought of in juxtaposition to critical thinking skills, the ability to be creative is actually an integral part of being an electrical engineer. To be able to envision a future not yet created is to engineer that future. That’s why lateral and logical thinking must be hand in hand.
There are many more attributes to look for when conducting the electrical engineering recruitment process, some of which we have covered previously. However, our services are vast and specialist, ranging from helping you with a hiring plan to providing interview training and beyond. Get in touch with our team of top recruitment experts today.
