Recruitment and Selection, 1 day

Delivered at your office or a training centre, in groups or 1-2-1

Increasingly, the effectiveness of the traditional and unstructured interview is being questioned. Both the cost of wrong selection decisions and the chances of missing the right person are increased by the reliance on basic techniques. This course will widen the horizons beyond basic interview skills. It will introduce delegates to behavioural interviewing and the use of competencies in selection.
