 Recruitment and Selection

Recruitment and Selection Training Courses     

The key to a successful organisation is having the right people in the right jobs.  This applies equally whether the person is a new recruit or a potential transfer from another area. 

These courses look at the stages of the recruitment process and the range of techniques available to ensure you make the right choice. They explain the use of the necessary documentation and focus on the skills of the selection interview.


Recruiting the Right People

1 day recruitment training course

This one-day recruitment course is all about having a robust recruitment process which includes robust questioning techniques and use of probing follow-up questions. It is aimed at managers with basic experience of recruiting, who can build on good practice. It also includes an update on the law relating to recruitment and selection.


Introduction to Recruitment and Selection

2 day recruitment training course

The two day course is called ‘An Introduction to Recruitment’ and is aimed at managers who have minimal experience of recruiting and require an in-depth learning experience with the opportunity to practice the skills required.  It covers thoroughly all aspects of the process. 

This course is very practical, using examples of recruitment documentation and legal requirements to apply to fictitious (or forthcoming)vacancies, to give participants hands-on experience of all the stages of the recruitment process.  This level of actual application of principles and procedures is vital for the protection of the organisation, where the consequences of poor recruitment practice could be disastrous.


The following topics will be included in both programmes:

  • Job specifications
  • Selection criteria
  • Behavioural Questioning
  • Update on Employment Law relating to recuirtment
  • Shortlisting
  • Psychometric and ability testing
  • Assessing candidates
  • Practical interview skills

Feedback from previous delegates:

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your Recruitment and Selection training yesterday - pace, content and ethos perfect for the group - and you finished on time! I particularly learnt a lot from the session on how to design interview questions and use 'probing' to good effect. As a trainer myself I know how hard it is to get everything 'right' at once as you did - so I congratulate you. It's always a pleasure to see best practice in action."
