Event details:

Although simple enough it is often challenging to select the right candidate, especially in a competitive market.

This workshop is designed to equip anyone involved in the interviewing and selection process with a range of skills and techniques they can use to conduct recruitment interviews which are effective, within the law and fits with your company culture.

This programme will enable delegates to:

  • Use effectively behavioural, competency-based interviewing - where the most reliable
  • Indicator of future performance is evidence of past behaviour
  • Identify the essential criteria and experience you require with the job and person specification and to evaluate if the candidate meets this
  • Establish what to look for in a CV - highlighting areas that need clarification at the interview
  • Prepare for and structure the interview and manage the time available
  • Identify what questions to ask to understand the candidate’s experience and get them talking
  • Sell your organisation’s benefits and on-board the right person quickly
  • Work within the legal framework – things you can / can’t ask and the legal pitfalls to avoid
  • Managing bias
  • Manage ‘tricky’ questions that the candidate might ask
  • Give your feedback after the interview, including your recommendation on hiring

Who should attend?

  • All people who are involved at any stage of the interviewing and selection process
  • Those managers who are out of practice and require a refresher to their interviewing skills
  • Younger managers and employees who are likely to be involved at a future stage as an observer or additional assessor
