In this assignment I will clearly explain the
recruitment process that takes place in Thorpe
park. And will use a flow chart to explain the
various process. I will also be talking about the
retention too.
in Thorpe park before a job is to be advertised, it goes through some
stages. Firstly the recruiting line manager has to check the job role,
and will discuss any changes to be made with the HR, then he
passes authorisation to recruit to their senior manager to initiate
signature collection. When that is done the senior manager will
have to agree and pass it on to HR. the head of HR/HR manager
will agree to the job title, the grade and structure. Then it is passed
on to the Head of finance he/she will agree to the budget/ salary.
And finally it is passed on to the General manager for the final
approval. Thorpe park does this to know if its really important to
employ someone to take in that position. when all this processes
are done the HR team comes next.
If you need someone for a particular job its best for the job to be
advertised. Thorpe park jobs advert are done internally (i.e. inside
the company.) the advertising is handled by the HR team. they also
have to agree the method of advertising for the job with the
recruiting line manager. They advertise internally firstly for two weeks
and simultaneously conduct talent bank search plus advertise on the
website( also
they might be someone within the company who might be able to
handle the job or who might need a promotion, and also it will saves
them time and money. At the same time the HR will explore job
specific websites with recruiting line manager. If there is no one
internally the recruiting line manager may request HR explores
additional advertising channels, e.g. trade/local/national press etc.
as a last resort recruiting line manager may request HR engages with
a recruitment agency on the PSL. If the sector is not recognised on
the PSL. The recruitment manager should identify and negotiate rates
with desired agency/agencies. This will cost them a lot of money and
time. But if someone is found for the job within the company they will
be no need for advertising again. They carry out all this process so
they can attract the right persons fit for the job that is advertised.
Total jobs.
The HR team handles all the applications given in by applicants and
after that passes it on to the Recruiting line manager. They do this
so as to get the right persons who has the qualification required or
more and also experience. To be suitable for the job.
the recruiting line manager gives all the feed back of the applicants
he has successfully picked to the HR , he calls , email, or writes to them
informing them if they have been selected for the job. And if they
haven't he gives them information why. Thorpe park does this to make
sure that they carry out the right process, they call applicants to get
them informed on how their applications have been handled, so not
to keep them worried.
The HR team arranges interviews with applicants which their
applications have been selected. The interview is held by the
recruiting line manager a face to face interview. The interview is
held so that they get to know how good the applicant is they also
want to know how verbally good the person is, how composed he
is etc. and if he is good enough to handle the job.
After the interview is held the HR team they speak to the successful
candidates who did well, they offer them the job, tell them when
they will start , how much they will be paid etc..Thorpe park carry
out all this processes to get the right persons who will fit for the job,
because its not an easy task sacking someone, so they try to avoid
it by recruiting someone who will fit in.
It is sometimes difficult to find the right employee suitable and fit for a job. It is not an
easy task to accomplish when finding the suitable person to take in the position .
Thorpe park carries out different process in recruiting its staffs. On the contrary, if
these processes are not handled efficiently, the wrong sort of lethargic employee
appointments can prove fatal even to the business which is already established. It
is very important for the recruiting team in Thorpe park to be absolutely clear on
what they expect an employee to be. The skills required for the job should be
enumerated as precisely as possible. Transferable skills which the company could
use also deserve a mention. It is important for Thorpe park to carry out all this steps
because it helps them make better decisions, it will save them money, and will give
them a good outcome.
 For example: Thorpe park advertises for its jobs internally, they want to find some
one inside the organisation who is qualified for the job. They do this in order to save
them time and money.
before the job is advertised the HR team the RECRUITNG LINE MANAGER, THE
agree. It is important for them to go through all this because they need to know if
it would be necessary for anyone to fill in the place, the salary that will be
available to pay etc.
 They carry out basic sift to get applicants who are qualified enough for the job
and passes it on to the recruiting manager. They sift because they want to get
someone who will have much to offer to the organisation, who is experienced and
who can handle the job properly.
I have attached some documents with this presentation. The
FIRST document I have attached is an authorisation form, it is
a form filled in by the SENIOR MANAGER, HR MANAGER,
form the different managers have to fill in different
information's: the position vacant, the advertising
requirements, budgeted salary, if its necessary to employ
someone to take the job, what kind of skills they want and
require. And if at the end they all agree to it they sign it. This
documents helps them consider to know if they really need
someone to take the job and it helps them to be organised.
The second document is a questionnaire, giving to individuals
who fancy working with them. In the questionnaire they are
several questions you answer, they are all about Thorpe park.
Questions like: if your happy to follow process and
retention is a process in which the employees are encouraged to remain with the organization
for the maximum period of time or until the completion of a project etc.. Employee retention is
beneficial for the organization. If a person joins a business and then leaves quickly the business
will have to pay the recruitment cost again to get another staff.
Employees are retained for different reasons:
For being loyal
Hard work
Confidence in leadership
Dedication to work
There are different ways of retaining an employee;
Having contracts with them: extending the time and length of them to stay. Which at times
benefits the employee more, because they gain more skill, and get to know new things.
Wage increase; increasing their salaries, paying them more than the usual. ( financial rewards).
Holidays: the company also retain their staffs by giving them time off from work, they might
even pay for the expenses ( the flight ticket, the hotels etc).
Discounts/ benefits; to retain the employee they also offer them discounts in different stores
where they shop and get things cheaper like 10% or 20% off.
Sick days: when employee get sick they give them days off, a week etc. and also check on
them at times.
Having them to work in an Interesting environment, so that they would be comfortable doing
the work with ease.
Pension; they also arrange to pay employee pension after they leave.
All this ways will motivate the employee to work with them.
