York College

Due to the ongoing impact of Coronavirus we have moved many of our face to face training courses online.

We are now able to offer zoom based training to employees working from home, on furlough, or joining in from a socially distanced office.

Is this online seminar for me?

Recruiting can be time consuming and costly and the impact on the team of an unsuitable hire can be significant.  An ideal recruitment will gain you an effective new member of staff, who adds value to the team and is aligned with your values and ways of working.

Ensuring that you run a thorough, fair and legal recruitment process means that you are able to showcase yourselves as an employer and build a strong reputation that attracts future candidates.

This course is aimed at anyone who has responsibility for recruiting and interviewing new hires.

Learning Methods Used

The training is delivered live via Zoom by one of our associate trainers who will use a mix of taught input, breakout discussions, exercises and self-directed learning to guide you through the content.

The content is delivered in two separate 2.5hr zoom sessions to ensure that delegates are able to maintain focus for the full session.
