Recruitment in all its forms is an area of work where good interview skills can make the difference between great success and disappointing billing results. As one of London's leading recruitment to recruitment agencies, this is something GSR2R understands, so as a way of adding value and further engaging their clients and associates they engaged expert recruitment and management trainer Nicky Coffin of Centered Excellence to offer an exclusive complementary course in advanced interviewing skills.
The idea of this half day session was to build on the already high level of skills and experience recruitment consultants have in interviewing.

Positioned at an advanced level, this intensive session looked at areas including:
How to structure an effective interview process;
Best practices for interview preparation;
Identifying high and low performers;
Designing questions that get honest answers in competency and behaviour based interviews;
Avoiding vague, theoretical or leading lines of questioning;
Effectively evaluating interview results.

The session was offered to recruitment consultants by invitation, and held at GSR2R's london office.. The half day duration was designed to pack as much information and value into the time without keeping attendees away from their recruiter desks for long, and proved to be very well received by attendees. Attendees also found a great deal of value in the content covered in the session. One recruitment consultant who undertook the training commented:"I really enjoyed the training, it was very useful. It will also be great to talk to clients about their interviewing techniques, getting more buy in from them and making myself more valuable to them as a consultant! Thanks!".
