Dacorum Borough Council is offering two subsidised workshops to local businesses.

A Recruitment and Selection Skills workshop takes place from 9.30am to 4.30pm on Thursday, September 3, at the Maylands Business Centre, on Redbourn Road, Hemel Hempstead.

Finding the right person to fill a vacancy can feel like a huge task. Getting it wrong is costly and time consuming and can affect your business in many ways.

Often managers are faced with recruiting in a hurry and may be out of practice at interviewing, assessing and deciding on who best fits the role.

This workshop will help you tackle filling a vacancy in a structured and measured way.

It will help you identify what skills and abilities you are looking for, how to advertise, how to structure your interview around these competencies and how to collect the information from the candidates to enable you to make a correct decision.

The cost is £90 plus VAT, including lunch. To book a place, contact 01442 531002 or email
