Why book this course?

Recruitment is one of the most important aspects of any business. Get it right, and you’ll have team members that contribute to your success and develop alongside the business. Get it wrong, and you can introduce unstable elements that inhibit your growth, or unsuitable candidates that then have to be replaced at cost.

Our Recruitment, Interviewing and Selection course looks at the various stages of the recruitment process, from defining the role and advertising to short listing and “onboarding”. We’ll help you craft the perfect person specification and job description, reducing the risk of wasting valuable time, money and resources on unsuitable applicants.

Who is the course for?

This course is ideal for line Managers, HR managers/administrators, business owners, and anyone else who is involved in employee recruitment and selection.
