Our approach

Step 1: Staffing need analysis and planning

  • We first consult with client on company culture, state of business, and corporate vision.
  • We then define the job specifications, such as title, scope and responsibilities, compensation package, reporting relationship, number of staff required, and profile of the ideal candidate.

Step 2: Design of recruitment advert

  • We manage the design of a recruitment advert then compile a list of target sources for candidates. 

Step 3: Posting job openings

  • We post job openings on our website and other specialized job opening websites, identify candidates using our in-house database, local and international network of contacts, industry research, social media, LinkedIn, recruitment agencies websites and relevant platforms across East Africa.

Step 4: First selection and interview

  • Based on CV and application letter, we will make a first selection of those who meet entry criteria and profile. The first selection applicants will be interviewed face-to-face by Outstanding Solutions to determine whether their backgrounds are “on target” with the client’s requirements.
  • We will then prepare briefs for clients that highlight personal traits, work history, and observations made by interviewer.
  • Finally, we create the candidate list and arrange for client the final interviews of short-listed candidates.

Step 5: Reference check

  • We require a minimum of two referees that we will contact to confirm the applicants’ credentials, experience and behaviour/ethics.

Step 6: Final interview and negotiation

  • At this stage, we retain the coordination efforts.
  • We will be responsible for notifying applicants of their invitation for the interview.
  • Final interview will be conducted by the hotel management, at their hotel property or an alternative preferred location.
  • We will manage the notification of appointment to successful applicants and send of regret letter to unsuccessful ones.

Step 7: General hotel orientation (Optional)

  • As the new employee start their employment, we would typically include in our recruitment packages general hotel orientation for the new employee.
  • This would start with the familiarisation of the newly recruited staff with property’s organization’s history, management, and vision.
  • We would then inform newly recruited staff about relevant policies and work procedures.
  • We would finally outline the client’s workplace culture and behaviours through our work ethics program.

Step 8: After sales service

  • We maintain relationship with our clients beyond the conclusion of the recruitment process to follow recruited staff integration, client’s satisfaction or future needs.
  • We also maintain relationship with recruited employees to ensure smooth transition and progress.
