Recruitment and Selection Course

This course is aimed at management and those with responsibility for recruiting and selecting employees internally or externally for their organisation.

Since the economic downturn, job seeker numbers have increased. This has resulted in additional costs for businesses as they have had to assess more and more candidates. A lot of businesses have responded by inputting additional layers in their recruitment and selection process. With rumoured costs of between £7,000 and £35,000 for employing staff depending on level, it's essential that this process is robust.


Course Objectives

By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • State the key pieces of legislation impacting on the recruitment and selection
  • Prepare a relevant job and personnel specification for a vacancy
  • Design an effective job advertisement
  • Identify best practices and protocols in responding to, and short-listing, applicants
  • Prepare effectively for a recruitment interview
  • Carry out an objective and professional recruitment interview
  • Make an objective and balanced recruitment decision
  • Complete the recruitment process to best practice standards
