Three-hour workshops with a high proportion of practical exercises to gain new knowledge and skills through practise. The aim is to learn through role-play, feedback and self-analysis.

Recognition of the importance of recruiting the right people to your business. Understanding of how to manage the recruitment process in an efficient and cost effective way.


With everything becoming more “digital” you’d be remiss to ignore the potential for digital recruitment platforms, such as LinkedIn – and other cost effective recruitment sites. This workshop will show you:

  • How LinkedIn is becoming the ‘go-to’ site for recruiting quality candidates – and how you can tap into the free recruitment tools.
  • Setting up LinkedIn recruitment and setting criteria, restrictions and profiles.
  • Creating the right ‘digital job specification’ – how it differs from the standard ‘spec’.
  • Bums on seats – using tools to find the right candidates.
  • Setting and maximising your budget of your campaign.
  • Running your recruitment campaign – managing facilities in LinkedIn (segmenting, shortlisting, rejecting etc.).
  • What are the other competitive digital recruitment sites you can tap into and promote the role – Indeed/Monster etc.
  • How to align your digital recruitment campaigns with your HR and recruitment process.
