Build a personalised recruitment process

Take control of your recruitment with this hands-on training course to ensure you recruit the right people for the right jobs.

Recruiting can be one of the most stressful parts of a leadership role. The high potential impact of recruiting the wrong person and the risks involved in trying to make a decision before your top candidate is snapped up by another employer can make the process difficult. The effect which selecting the wrong employee can have on a team can make the fall-out last for a long time.

In this highly-interactive course, you'll build your own personalised recruitment process under the expert guidance of the instructor as you analyse your business, the role, the requirements from the new employee, and the process to get the best person on board. You'll learn how a list of interview questions can stifle your ability to assess candidates, and how recruiting someone into the wrong role can have many repercussions. You'll also understand how equal opportunities regulations can affect your recruitment process, and how to describe the job in such a way that only the most relevant people apply. The course closes with a look at the on-boarding process to ensure that your new recruit is motivated from day one.

With 14 years of recruitment experience, Neil Shorney, director and principal instructor, rightly sees this as one of the most important parts of running a successful team.

Having interviewed literally hundreds of candidates for various roles, Neil has in-depth knowledge of this important area.
