All recruitment companies are measured by the quality of candidates they submit and this course will provide delegates with the skills and tools required to present the very best of talent available.

Researchers will learn how to identify and approach high-calibre candidates in complete confidence and entice them to explore a solid career opportunity with their dedicated client.

The more experienced researcher who already understands the recruitment process will see their training kicked up a notch. Delegates will learn to understand psychology and the way people make decisions, the importance of communicating intent and context, using analogy and metaphor and how to deal with uncertainty and lack of information. Researchers will also learn the relationship model and various interview techniques (structures, STAR, competency based interviewing) to effectively qualify potential candidates.

Business Development
This course will be a combination of practical systems and proven processes that work and get results, offering a comprehensive and detailed induction into the theory and practice of business development drawing on the very latest academic research as well as real world example of recruitment best practice.
