Who should attend?

This recruitment training programme is best suited to HR Professionals, in-house Recruiters & Hiring Managers who are interested in becoming more involved in direct sourcing for their organisation. It's suited to both experienced recruiters and newbies alike, with or without previous experience of direct sourcing.

Recruitment Training objectives: 

With live demonstrations, the training goes at your pace, and initally looks at key strategic considerations including which social platforms are most suited to your company and how best to promote your employer brand online. Throughout the workshop we consider the candidate journey and today's expectations from quality candidates.    

We then take a look at LinkedIn and start by optimising your own and your company's profile in the new Next Gen format and look at how to build employer brand content. We then show you how to search & approach key talent and build talent pipelines on a number of platforms including Google, LinkedIn and Indeed. The afternoon is focused on other sourcing platforms where we share current best practices and examples from leading organisations.      

A recruiters life is a busy one, so we finish the workshop by introducing you to tools that help you manage your time and ensure you can fit in Employer Branding as part of your attraction and recruitment efforts.

We will also:

  • Introduce you to key productivity tools to help you manage your time

  • Discuss which tools are most suitable for sourcing specific skills

  • Provide case study examples across several industry sectors

What will I need on the day?

We find learning sticks when it's interactive, so do bring along a laptop so you can follow the live demos and practice your new skills. Everything else you need is provided on the day, including a comprehensive course manual and lunch.
