Recruitment Documentation

Describe the recruitment documentation used in a selected organisation (P1)

Recruitment Process

Tesco would need to identify what job roles need filling and what are the needs/requirements for that role are. Establishing the need will enable the business to hire the right candidate for the job since you know what you are looking for.
