This session aims to enhance your skills and promote best practice at every stage of the recruitment and selection procedure, from analysing the job, through to advertising, shortlisting, interviewing, and induction.

We’ll also raise awareness of legal responsibilities and equalities best practice. It is aimed at managers, supervisors, Board / management committee members, or anyone else involved in recruiting paid staff.

The day will include trainer input, group work and case studies.
