Headhunting Training – In-House


We all want the very best candidates for our businesses and our hiring managers, and having consistent access to these people is one of major issues facing the in-house recruitment market.


We all want to find and hire the best people for our vacancies but as we all know, quite often the best people for these roles are already working.



So, if they are not sitting on any databases or job boards, a great solution is to headhunt.

Who is Headhunting Training for?


This course is designed for in-house recruiters who are new to headhunting, and are looking at add these skill sets, or those who have plenty of experience but are looking to get better results from their calling.

It is best suited those who have already acquired a good level of general recruitment skill and experience.


Positive Outcomes of the Headhunting Training Course


You will leave the headhunting training course with the motivation, confidence and skills necessary to make excellent calls to prospective candidates for your business.


IMPORTANT NOTE:  This course is fully interactive and can be run with a live calling element, getting you on the phone and embedding the skills immediately.


“We had a training with James focused on Headhunting tailor-made for our recruitment needs at KBC SSC! He managed to make all 10 of us reflect on his thoughts, analyse our daily responsibilities and the way we approach these, which is great success! He created a safe space where we shared our concerns, weak points and needs of improvement! I have a lot of take away’s from this training. I would definitely recommend James to any company be it a large corporate structure with fast growing teams or a smaller company”
