Headhunting Training Online


We all want the very best candidates for our shortlists, and having consistent access to these people is one of major issues facing the recruitment market. All our client’s want the best people for their vacancies and as we all know, quite often the best people for these roles are already working.


So, if they are not sitting on your database, one solution is to headhunt.

Who is this Headhunting Training for?


This course is designed for consultants 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.



The course will be delivered in 2 modules of approximately 3 hours per part. I find that this length of online delivery gives the best learning outcomes, as well as allowing the office to run as normally as possible during a training day.


The modules are delivered over a time period to suit you and your business – usually a day or two apart. 

Practical Outcomes


You will leave the course with the motivation, confidence and skills necessary to make excellent calls to prospective candidates for both retained and contingent assignments.

James coached me through headhunting training and I found the training so engaging, interesting and fun! He definitely knows his stuff and was a huge help for my confidence. I have learnt so much in these last few days and really appreciate the advice he had. I actually enjoy headhunting now!!!
