Interviewer skills are widely recognised as a crucial skill for those involved in interviewing on behalf of their organisation. This may be for recruitment or increasingly, to assess current employees’ development needs and suitability for promotion.

With 30 years of experience in the recruitment industry, we have invaluable insights into interviewing best practice with our interview training. Our expertise stems from engaging with clients and candidates throughout the entire recruitment process. This programme is reflective of changes we have seen in interviewing, as well as new developments in employment legislation.
