Programme

Our tailored assessments will form a key part of your recruitment process. We’ll help you identify your candidates’ current experience, skillset and their future needs.

The tests can be held face to face or via Zoom and we will work with your selection panel to develop suitable interview scenarios for the candidates. We’ll then feed back with video of their interview and our assessment of their performance.

    Great team building exercise and very interesting, I like that we were encouraged to practice and try and produce something individual and then come together as a team to discuss.

  • Kate Belfast

    I found this training exceptionally helpful. I have been doing social media for five years now and I still got a lot from this course. The trainer was very friendly and approachable, the course wasn't too big which meant you got to ask questions more freely which was very helpful.
