Course description

As recruitment and retention becomes harder in many industries, this module will help managers attract talented applicants for their organisation, while staying within the law at all stages of the recruitment and selection process. The session will cover how to develop objective selection criteria for effective CV screening, and how to advertise roles effectively. 

Delegates will prepare for an interview (selecting appropriate interview questions) and practise their interviewing skills including how to score and assess a candidates’ suitability for the role. Delegates will also learn how to give feedback to unsuccessful candidates in a manner that both safeguards the organisation from discrimination claims and provides a positive and professional image of the company.
