If you’re hiring your first employee, it’s likely you’re feeling excited, nervous and maybe a bit overwhelmed about everything you need to do. If so, this toolkit is for you.

About this Hiring Toolkit

If you’re hiring an employee, you need to hire SMART from the START.

This means being clear on exactly what and who you need to hire, creating a great job advert to attract the best people to apply for your job, and interviewing in a way that enables you to make the right decision and hire the best person for the job and sending out a Contract and all the new joiner paperwork. Then, once you have made a job offer, you have a lot of boring, but important things you need to do, such as setting up a pension scheme, setting up payroll and getting the right insurance!

So, this Hiring Toolkit is designed to support you through all of this – AND help you SAVE TIME, comply with the LAW and avoid making costly legal MISTAKES, which could result in you being fined or sued.

What you get in this Toolkit

You’ll get all the templates you need to help you with the hiring process, make a job offer to an employee, plan their induction to help them settle in and manage the probation period (essentially setting you up for success). It also comes with useful checklists, instructions and FAQs. The templates you get are:

  • A digital copy of my Book which is called ‘How to hire your first employee’
  • An offer letter and Employment Contract Template, in Word format, which is completely customisable. It’s 100% compliant with UK Employment Law and includes GDPR and pension auto-enrolment.
  • An Employee handbook, which contains valuable HR policies and working practices. This document (in word format) can be edited and personalised to your business to make sure that it looks and reads exactly the way you want it to and allows you to add your logo. This is 100% compliant with UK Employment Law and was last updated in 2020.
  • Job description template
  • 5 x New Joiner Forms
  • Guide on how to check someone’s right to work in the UK
  • Induction Plan Checklist
  • Probation template letters x 3 (pass, fail and extend)

Plus if you get stuck you can ask me unlimited questions via my private Facebook community.
