We are often asked “what are the most important things to look for when hiring?”. Well, aside from meeting the skills and experience required for the job description, here are the top 5 attributes that we look for in candidates.
  1. Positive Attitude – Attitude is important for team fit and culture, and a positive attitude towards work shows that future employees are willing to be part of the team. 
  2. Dependability and ability to adapt – It is important that candidates can display that their employers can rely on them to turn up and get the job done. 
  3. Good communication and honesty – Communicating with other staff members, bosses and clients is important in the workplace. Displaying the ability to communicate openly and honestly is important during the interview process. 
  4. Determination and willingness to learn – Workplaces are constantly evolving, so it is important that employees display a willingness to learn and determination to do well in their role. 
  5. Good personal presentation –  Taking care of your appearance shows respect for yourself, your workplace, and a high personal standard. Whilst this does not necessarily mean you need to show up in a suit and tie, tidy clothing and hair shows good personal presentation and gives a great first impression.
