If your business is finally beginning to grow, or perhaps growing sooner than you anticipated, you may require an extra pair of hands, and it can be unusual to employ your first member of staff.
You should not only consider the occupation and job role, you should think hard about the type of individual you want, their background, personality and relevant qualifications. To find individuals ideally suited to your role and your business, you can contact a recruitment agency, and they will work to find an individual that meets your requirements, but the interview process is always going to be a deciding factor.
You may want to test their skills. For example if your available job position is for a writer, then you can set up a quick test, perhaps even getting them to write a paragraph, because it’s important to feel confident in the individual you have selected for your business.
