Finding a great fit for respite

mirus Respite services recently put out an advert for a new Assistant Manager.


There was an initial formal interview in the mirus office but it was really important that whoever was selected was a great fit with the people they were going to be working with.


Lisa often joins the interview panel when new staff are needed at Respite, and this time was no exception.

The setting for the meeting was relaxed and informal, and Lisa gave the candidates around the house and garden while she got to know them.


She chatted with the candidates about what coming to Respite means to her, how long she had been coming and the type of things she likes to do whilst at Respite.


Then she asked some excellent questions she had written herself, designed to get the candidates to open up and tell her a bit more about themselves.


Once the candidates had left, Lisa took part in a feedback meeting with the Respite Manager and Assistant Manager.


Feedback from Lisa was of equal importance and she delivered it in a very professional manner.


Thanks to this inclusive method of interviewing, Respite has now appointed a fantastic new Assistant Manager who is settling in to the job really well.
