Effective recruitment is critical to any organisation's success.

If there is any truth in that well worn cliché that 'people are an organisation's greatest asset', then it's crucial that close attention should be paid to your recruitment process and your role within it.

A Useful Guide to Interviewing has been designed as a practical resource to help you recruit the right person for your job and guides you through the whole shortlisting and interviewing process.

Although this Useful Guide has been written to help recruiters it is a valuable read if you are attending interviews. You will find out exactly what your interviewers are looking for and the process they are using. (N.B. See 'Useful Guide to Interview Success').

What the Useful Guide includes:

  • the theory of effective interviewing including different approaches such as Behaviour Description and Model Answer interviewing techniques
  • the key interviewing skills and the importance of well written job descriptions, person specifications and application review/ratings.
  • sifting/shortlisting principles and a sifting exercise so you can put them into practice.
  • preparing for and conducting the interview professionally through to job offer.
  • recruitment and the law.

  • Upon completion you will be able to:

  • approach the interviewing process with complete confidence.
  • deliver a professional experience for your candidates.
  • give yourself the best possible chance of recruiting the right person for your vacancy.
  • support your selection and provide a professional audit trail if required.
