Best recruitment practices
Advisor, advisory board or board of directors?
This depends very much on the case but in general we'd recommend to have an individual advisor once the
business is getting started, add one or two advisors once business is up and running and have a more
formal relationship (i.e. board of director) with established business.
Describe briefly what your company does, where you are at the moment and what are your key short
What skills/competences are you looking for? You can also explain the key challenges or targets you
have and let advisors propose what skills are needed.
Make sure to share your ad on relevant social media channels.
Ideally you would have several candidates interested in the position. Make sure to utilize advisor
search and contact advisors yourself especially if you only get 1-2 applications.
Check each applicant's Boardio and LinkedIn profile. See also if you have shared LinkedIn
connections and ask their opinion on the candidate.
Try to have a phone call or f2f meeting with top 3 candidates. At this point it's also good to touch
the subject of compensation to make sure your views are not too far away from eachother.
Make a written agreement with the candidate you have selected. You may however want to have a few
months ""trial period"" before committing to longer term co-operation.
