Why Study Recruitment Skills?

Effective recruitment plays a vital role at the heart of every successful business.  The job of the recruiter is to find the best possible people for every available role, as quickly and efficiently as possible.  In doing so, recruitment personnel ensure the business has access to the skills, knowledge and abilities it needs to perform at its best.  Career opportunities for qualified and capable recruitment personnel are wide open, with constant demand from small and large employers worldwide.  Unlimited earnings potential, ongoing development opportunities, the ability to have a positive impact on the lives of others - just a few of the benefits of considering a career in recruitment.  Not to mention, the opportunity of going into business for yourself by starting your own online recruitment consultancy.

By the end of this course the learner will be able to:

  • Identify the factors affecting recruitment
  • Assess the recruitment process
