Course Description


When you are recruiting for a new member of staff one of the most important things to take into consideration in the interview.  In an ideal world you want to make sure that you find the right candidate whilst at the same time making sure that the right candidate wants to work with you.

In this course our Recruitment Expert Sarah Bishop goes through certain techniques you can use when conducting your interviews to ensure you attract the perfect employee


Unfortunately this is the approach that a lot of business owners take especially when recruiting for their first member of staff.  If you do not take the interview seriously you might end up with HR problems in a few months or years.


Sarah will go through a number of basic and advanced interview techniques and test questions that you can use within your business to ensure that you are getting the results you hope for.
