For any organisation or company its people are its lifeblood; finding and hiring the right people, however, is a major challenge, given the competition for staff with the right skills, knowledge and attitude. For this reason, it is vital that any person with a responsibility for, or a role within, staff recruitment is highly competent to perform that function. Failure to ensure this competence will result in an inability to attract the right people, and/or a failure to identify those people at the time of recruitment.

A long list of potential job candidates is, in many ways, a nice problem for a manager. What is not so nice, however, is the prospect of making mistakes in the shortlisting process, and so losing the best candidate. Having achieved the learning outcomes of this course the learner will be able to avoid this problem and ensure that he or she is left with a genuine list of the best candidates. The learner will also be able to organise and conduct effective recruitment interviews calculated to identify the best candidate from the recruitment shortlist.

This course is for Line managers or other staff involved in shortlisting candidates or conducting job interviews.

This product allows the student to print a certificate from the course on sucessful completion.
