    Our Interview Skills Training Course Is The Perfect In-house Solution to ensure you get the best people for the job

    Important. If you are still not convinced: read on!

    This intensive and highly practical interview skills training course, tailored to your organisation’s recruitment and selection policies and procedures will provide everything your managers and team leaders need to know and do to appoint the right person for the job. Recruitment training is essential to make sure the recruiter appoints the best person for the job.


    They will find out exactly what to do to ensure they don’t get taken in by a candidate. You know the kind of person: someone who interviews really well but can’t do or won’t do the job when appointed.


    It can be really risky can’t it to appoint a new team member or manager.  You risk destabilising a previously cohesive, high performing team, and unless you are on top of the latest employment legislation relating to recruitment and selection, your business could end up will all kinds of issues and expenses. This ultimately falls down to making sure that recruiter training is in place for your staff.


    No-one wants to end up with a problem member of staff  so make sure you don’t appoint one by making sure your staff have the skills required that we teach on our recruitment training programme.  Our training ensures your organisation has the key skills, tools and techniques needed to appoint great people who will be real assets in your business.


    Our award winning training business has helped hundreds of directors, managers and team leaders in businesses like yours with their interview skills training and we’ve had numerous articles on interview skills published in professional journals too. So you know you’ll be using experts you can trust to develop interview skills training programmes that meet your particular needs.


    We include lots of practical work and feedback so your delegates will be taking part in practice interviews and if you choose our two day course they’ll be running full blown panel interviews with external ‘candidates’ so it will seem very real.


    This is without doubt the most important, most effective and best-run training course I have ever attended.  Get your interviewing right and so many of the people problems you can experience as a manager simply don’t occur. Thank you Leading Light Learning
