When the team have reached workload capacity or you recognise you have a skill or role gap in the business, you may need to recruit new people to join your agency.

When recruiting new people to the team there's a number of things to do, from working out the profile of the person you'd like to recruit or role you need to fill, to advertising a position, asking for and reviewing CVs, conducting interviews, and finally appointing someone.
