Develop the confidence, strategies, relationships and tools to achieve sustainable job outcomes

Engaging with employers to adjust recruitment processes can help people to secure sustainable employment.

It can create opportunities to fit the skills, strengths and needs of individual candidates - as well as enabling employers to fully utilise their abilities.

Traditional recruitment methods are not suitable for everyone, and it is not easy to find the right job for some candidates.

This course will provide delegates with the skills and knowledge to be able to support individuals to secure the right job opportunity, prepare for work and to be successful in their role.
