How to Get Recruitment Right

If you’re uncertain about how you should fill your vacancy, this online interactive workshop has it all!

Event Information


Recruitment can be a challenge. Ensuring you have the right people in the right roles, whilst following current legislation. Mistakes can prove costly; in terms of resolution costs, the knock-on effects for your organisation and employees or both!

Furthermore, given the events of the last year, we have seen the world of work change dramatically and what has worked successfully in terms of recruitment in the past may not work so well now. 

Whether you’re uncertain about how you should fill your vacancy; where the best place is to advertise to attract good quality candidates; the most effective selection and interview techniques or how to successfully onboard a new recruit – this online, interactive workshop has it all!

Our recruitment experts, Jacqui Adams and Kim McMillan of Tick HR, will talk you through the steps to successful recruiting, share insights from other organisations as to how they manage their recruitment and facilitate discussions, providing you with the opportunity to reflect on your processes and learn from other businesses in attendance.


The session will cover:

  • Employer branding – what does it mean and how does it help?
  • Employee value proposition, company culture and values 
  • The options for filling your vacancy from permanent full-time basis to apprenticeships and interns
  • Routes to recruitment, including the cost and time of managing the process yourself versus involving a recruitment agency
  • Creating well thought out job descriptions and person specifications
  • Tips for making your job advert stand out from the crowd
  • Good practice guidance on selection and interview techniques
  • Steps for a smooth onboarding and induction process, including compliance considerations.


Upon completion of the workshop, you will receive an employment status guide and a new starter checklist, as well as a job description and person specification template.

Good quality candidates are hard to find – book your place today to learn how to optimise the impact of your recruitment campaigns and to deliver a great candidate experience gaining their buy-in and engagement from the outset.
