Workshop Objective

Recruiting in any business environment should be seen as a business investment. Getting the right person, with the right skills to complement your team is a prime responsibility for the practice manager. This course provides a framework for doing this within the complex legal constraints - the course includes guidance on creating an effective person specification, meeting the NHS Employment Check Standards, responsibilities under CQC Guidelines, shortlisting efficiently and then selecting the right interview structure and tests to ensure the right person joins your team.

By the end of this one day workshop delegates will be able to follow a logical and systematic approach to the recruitment of staff, which will ensure that the right people are recruited and kept by the practice. Delegates will also be able to ensure that they meet all the legal requirements and produce auditable documents which enable them to defend themselves against charges of discrimination.
