Resourcing Talent

Many organisations place over-reliance on a traditional, CV-based interview. Research has shown that this approach has a 20% probability of identifying accurately how the candidate will behave on the job, were they to be selected. A better approach, one more likely to provide an accurate reflection of potential behaviour, is the competency-based interview.

About this course:

This 2-day programme will take the learner through every aspect of competency-based interviewing, from preparation, including the identification of relevant competencies and how these translate to essential knowledge, skills and behaviours, and how to conduct the interview using a range of techniques to explore a candidate’s potential.
