Competency-based Recruitment focuses on how to express competency requirements, attract people who meet those requirements and then select the candidates who are the most competent or have the potential to be so.

Run as it features here, or run in-house where the content can be tailored to suit your organisational needs; cost effective if a number of people require training.  Call our in-house training team to discuss your particular requirements on +44 (0)20 8612 6202.
