How to recruit the best people for your arts organisation
How can you guarantee you're hiring the right people? Paul McGuinness from Spektrix shares six recruitment tips for arts organisations looking to hire the best candidates.
5. Make sure they're a cultural fit
Testing for cultural fit should form part of any robust recruitment process. This is particularly important for arts organisations, which are often made up of smaller teams with very different functions. Arranging time for candidates to meet team members in a social situation will help identify if there is a good fit and allow the wider team to be part of the process. It's vital to have a balanced culture too, particularly if part of the aim of bringing a new person on board is to change existing thinking or practices.
