About this course

With the average cost-per-hire in the UK being £3,000, it is in an organisation's best interest to ensure they make the correct hires. However, this can often be easier said than done.

To ensure the correct hire is made, those conducting an interview must be equipped with the skills and knowledge to ensure the interview is effective and they come away with all the information they need.

This short online Effective Recruitment Training course provides users with this information in easily-digestible bitesize chunks, covering areas including:

  • Asking effective questions
  • Interview structures
  • Key skills to look for in a candidate

right length , kept interest

I thought the modules were good, however I did disagree with you on one question - having interviewed more times than I would like to say. I find if you want a specific answer, it is sometimes easier to have an open question as it enables the person to expand, and if the person is nervous, they can sometimes ramble but give the correct / specific information as well more information about how they would deal with things.

Pointless and awkward.

The actual training itself is basically useless. It's full of points like "consider whether you'll use an application form or ask for CVs". I've never known any job be advertised at ElCom where we ask for CVs. But more annoyingly than this, it's really difficult to actually get into and complete the training. I've had to request new links to get to it 4 times now. The links must expire within about 1 day? For training that has been made mandatory, and when we're in an election year this is just really unhelpful for staff.
