I’m feeling scarily organised at the minute. We’ve been asked to deliver a day’s training course for Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service (PCVS) on 6th June and I’m already about ½ way through putting the training materials together. I suppose a big part of the reason that I’m so ahead of the game on this one is because of the subject matter. We’ve been asked to deliver a training course on how to about finding the best person for the job which is a topic that I’m particularly interested in and passionate about.
Getting recruitment right was really the start of my interest in HR generally. I used to work as a PA and part of my responsibilities was to coordinate recruitment in the company. Although it wasn’t the key part of my role, it was a part that I enjoyed enormously and immediately decided to make their recruitment process the best it could possibly be.
After 3 and ½ years in the role I learnt a lot about recruitment and it’s those lessons I will be sharing with the attendees on the course. We’ll be talking about what makes a good recruitment process and how to define, find and recruit the best person for the job. I’ll also be explaining different ways to find new staff that won’t break the bank and mean that the organisation can promote their activities at the same time.
