Our three speakers will take you on a recruitment journey on how to attract, select and retain the right candidate in 2018. Sharing their individual expertise they will dissect real-life examples demonstrating the implementation of certain recruitment techniques. These include the do's and don'ts of a job description, the language in job adverts and what to look out for in an interview.

Katherine Wiid, Recrion: Katherine is a specialist in how the language we use affects recruitment and retention. Using her approach to re-imagine job descriptions, interviews and staff management boosts her clients' recruitment and retention success from a typical 50% hit-rate to closer to 90%.
Suzanne Smith, Belvoir HR: Suzanne is an independent HR consultant who has a common sense, commercial approach to HR. She believes that whilst employment legislation should be factored into the recruitment process, it should not be allowed to dominate the process.
