Recruitment & Selection


At Kirkwood Training and Skills, we don’t just say that diversity and inclusion are key components to success. We believe it. Our own team is comprised of people who have been together since the beginning—fifteen years ago—and, as of present day, enjoys 100% retention rate. This training programme is built upon the effective recruitment solutions that we use ourselves.

There is far more to successful recruitment than psychometric testing and a tick-box approach to inclusion. This programme will change the way you look for and look at applicants—including how to spot and combat unconscious biases, and see beyond academic achievements to uncover hidden talent.

We understand the importance of having the right people in the right roles. This programme will challenge your perceptions of what that means. By working closely with you, we assess your specific recruitment challenges, and help you uncover fool-proof strategies for growing your organisation through effective recruitment.
