Recruitment, selection and induction (Scotland) - digital event


Most employers appreciate that the success of their business is dependent on their staff. However, finding the right people with the necessary abilities and skills, and then retaining them, requires knowledge and expertise.

This 3-hour digital event takes delegates through both the legal and good practice elements of an effective, fair and lawful recruitment process.

Business need

Poor recruitment can leave a business with employees who are disengaged and unsuitable for their role. Errors in recruitment can impact on the workplace through performance issues, low morale and unnecessary costs, and lead to discipline and grievance procedures.

Delivered via Zoom, this event will give you a sound understanding of the fundamentals which underpin an effective and fair recruitment process.

You will gain an overview of the recruitment process from planning through to successfully onboarding your new employees.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable For

Delegates from all sectors of industry including: managers, supervisors, team leaders, HR professionals, business owners, Trade Union representatives, employee representatives and individuals who wish to enhance their CPD.


Our expert-led training sessions are designed to facilitate discussion and interaction. This event will cover:

  • Planning your staffing need
  • Adapting to changing labour markets
  • The impact of the Equality Act 2010 on recruitment
  • How to attract the candidates you want
  • Selecting the best candidate: short listing, interviews, and other methods of selection
  • Reaching a decision
  • References and qualifications
  • Making an offer of employment
  • Onboarding new employees
