Good recruitment is about finding the right person for the job. Although simple enough, it is often challenging to select the right candidate, especially in a competitive market. Interviewers are usually under pressure to get additional resources and candidates are keen to get employment. All of which makes the selection process vitally important to reduce the risk of costly mistakes and ensure the fit works and is rewarding for both.

ran by the Cambridge Network, this one day workshop is designed to equip managers with a range of skills and techniques so they can conduct recruitment interviews which are professional, effective and within the law.
