With so many industries and sectors facing talent shortages, it is essential that you attract and select the very best people to join your organisation.  Interviewing is very much a two-way process – you need to make sure the candidate leaves feeling engaged, enthusiastic and excited about the prospect of joining such a great company.

We have all heard horror stories from friends, colleagues and the media of interviews that have gone wrong.  “Wrong” ranging from making the wrong decision in terms of who you offer a role to, through to bad reviews for you as an employer on Glassdoor – right through to employment tribunal claims for unfair practice.  No one wants to be the focus of those stories.

This course is designed to ensure that you have all the skills and knowledge needed to avoid those pitfalls. It is relevant to anyone who wants to improve their confidence and ability to interview, as well as those who are brand new to interviewing and want to learn best practice before they start.
