When you step up from being a sole trader to being a small business, hiring one or more employees can be a daunting task. Here are some tips:
- Write a full job description of the role and an expected title
- Have a salary in mind but allow yourself some leeway for negotiation
- As most small businesses can’t compete on salary, also make a list of perks that you could offer
- Write a full job description for yourself in your new role. You must be prepared to let go of the tasks that you expect your new employee to complete.
