Course details

Start Date

CPD Points





Half day (09:00-12:30)

Course Overview

An interactive half-day course designed to introduce you to the skills required to build and conduct effective interviews. You will leave with an understanding of how to manage a successful interview process and interviewing style.

This course is suitable for people approaching interviews for the first time and provides a useful refresher for experienced interviewers.

Course Content

  • How to prepare for an interview
  • The do’s and don’ts of interviewing
  • Managing stress – on both sides of the table
  • Asking the right questions
  • Listening skills
  • Building rapport
  • Evaluation
  • Making Decisions

Course Benefits

The most successful businesses are ones that have the right people in the right role with the right motivation, and with values that meet those of the company.

Finding these people does not happen by accident. It is essential for every business to have an appropriate, effective and efficient approach to interviewing. Without it, recruitment can be highly costly, time-consuming and frustrating and it is therefore incumbent on those responsible for interviewing to ensure that they have the skills and mindset necessary to find the right people.
