Recruitment Consulting Certificate

  • Introduction to Recruitment Consulting

Consisting of three comprehensive one day workshops, the RCSA Recruitment Consulting Certificate is the ultimate introductory training for new recruiters.  An assessment piece is also issued following the completion of the third workshop, with a submission deadline of two weeks later.

The three one day workshops will be held over three consecutive weeks.

This workshop is about proven solutions and realistic approaches to the competitive and challenging world of recruitment - not text book theory.

Workshop Two: Interviewing Essentials

Are candidates getting better at misleading consultants? Or are consultants not investing in the interviews?

Jodie Perram and Jacinta McConnell from Itch Recruitment

This was a wonderful overview of the recruitment process, it allowed me to feel safe in this space and learn in a very safe and supported way.    - QLD

There were many practical suggestions that I discussed with my manager to see if we were implementing in our agency and 9 time out of 10 we were.  The training was 100% relevant.   - MEL

This program will help the Recruiter to up-skill the knowledge and learn many aspects of how a Recruitment industry works and how to become one of the best Recruiter.    - QLD

I felt like the material was very relatable to my job, and I was able to take-away information to help myself and my colleagues further our knowledge and understanding of the industry.    - QLD

The way to talk to prospective candidates and clients was something I was unsure of but what I learnt from the two days will definitely be applied to future contact and I feel it will be beneficial.    - QLD

I received a lot of helpful information. How to link interview and reference check questions was one of the points that really stuck and will definitely help me in the future.    - QLD

The facilitator was excellent and knew her subject matter inside out. It was a great revision of the fundamentals of recruiting and I left with new insights regarding future directions and what I now need to on to refine our current systems. Many Thanks    - QLD

Great facilitator, with lots of great insight and very practical ways to start/improve effective sales and marketing tools as a Recruiter. I would highly recommend the course to my colleagues.   - NSW

I especially enjoyed the anecdotes that were told and the extra relevant real life information that was shared. Thank you   - WA

For a new recruiter it was extremely valuable. The facilitator was very helpful in also providing answers to a few of my questions that were not on the agenda. Highly recommend!    - VIC
