This practical one day recruitment and selection course provides delegates with the skills, knowledge and confidence to recruit and select the right team member for the job.

We recommend that the recruitment and selection training programme is supported with the current recruitment and selection documentation and process to ensure that the training embeds best practice across the organisation.

For the interview skills practice sessions, our experience shows participants acquire a deeper level of learning when practising their interviewing skills with either internal candidates not attending the programme and unfamiliar to the participants e.g. casual staff or external candidates to the organisation. It provides them with more of a ‘real life’ experience.
