Hiring The Right People Step 1.5 Create a Recruitment Funnel to Find the Perfect Person
Play • 18 min


In this episode of SYS Hiring the Right People, Steve talks about how you can create and use a recruitment funnel to find the right person for the right role in your business.




  • Using a recruitment funnel means you can cast your net wide and give yourself the best chance of finding the right person for your business. Doing it in a systemised way means you can whittle down and create a shortlist in a matter of minutes rather than spending wasted hours going through CVs and application forms.

  • You don’t want to limit the amount of applications, you want everyone who wants to apply to apply. You can then adjust your criteria so you reduce it down to the amount of people you want to actually choose from. You can process as many people as you want when you use this technique as you can increase or lower the ‘bar’ depending on the calibre of applicants that apply.

  • All questions on the form Steve creates are drop downs of tick boxes but he always includes one long form question, to ensure that the applicant can converse in written English to a standard he is happy with and can follow simple instructions.





“By doing this you can have the best chance at finding the right person for your business”


“The bigger the population the bigger chance you will find someone who is the perfect fit for your company”

Steve used to be a slave to his business but when he moved to Sweden in 2015, he was forced to change the way he worked. He switched to running his businesses remotely and after totally nailing this concept he decided to spend his time helping other small business owners do the same. Steve’s been investing in property since 2002, has a degree in Computing, and worked as a doctor in the NHS before quitting to focus full-time on sharing his systems and outsourcing Methodology with the world. He now lives in Sweden and runs his UK-based businesses remotely with the help of his team of Filipino and UK-based Virtual Assistants.
