Recruiting the right employee for your team is an incredibly important decision. The process itself can be both time-consuming and costly, so attracting and selecting the very best candidate for your position is an essential outcome. In addition, the use of technology has increasingly been changing the way employers recruit and, of course, the emphasis on virtual recruitment has really come to the fore as we find ways of working safely with Covid-19. The fundamentals of best practice, however, remain unchanged.
This series of webinars provides a solid foundation for anyone new to recruitment or seeking a refresher or update. The emphasis is on the use of a structured approach where good preparation and effective interviewing skills and techniques help maximise the success of your process, ensure consistency with your internal procedures, and minimise risk. The webinars will also explore how to ensure that virtual recruitment provides the very best outcome for employer and candidate alike.
Where appropriate, participants are asked to bring to the virtual sessions information that relates to a vacancy they are, or are likely to be, recruiting to in the future, such as a relevant job description and person specification. They will work with this material throughout the training – reviewing criteria, determining appropriate selection methods and writing and practising high quality interview questions.
Each session runs for two hours, with a break. In essence:
- Webinar 1 focuses on best practice and minimising risk.
- Webinar 2 focuses in more depth on the interview stage and building skills for face-to-face and virtual interviewing.
- Webinar 3 provides an opportunity for participants to gain experience conducting mock interviews, with actors taking the role of candidates for the exercises in the final session.
