Course Overview

Many in the legal profession have never received any formal training when it comes to recruitment of talent, even when completing leadership programs. We believe attracting, identifying and recruiting the best talent in your industry is a cornerstone to any organisations culture and success.

Furthermore, the Australian labour market is extremely tight and there are limited qualified candidates available in the market. Competition for talent is rife and retention has also become an issue.  Recruitment processes are often dis-jointed, take time, require high manager hours and input, can be costly (if subsequent turnover) and potentially do not attract the right calibre of talent.

We are on a mission is to change the world of Recruitment. So, candidates get better experiences, employers better quality hires, time to hire is reduced and costs are lower. All of this is done with better candidate care, more D&I thought and considerations, plus better candidate fit to your values and culture.

With specialist Recruitment and Legal Recruitment trainers – this leadership course is ideal for anyone in senior management positions and covers strategic market insights plus some fundamentals such as Competency Based Interviewing, through to top tips on interviews structure and market positioning (EVP and brand messages) to ensure you attract and retain talent.

Selecting the best person for a job role is a critical skill for those in legal practice. Recruitment is often overlooked in HR Degrees or leadership programs. Learning to lead the recruitment conversation, truly understand the skills and competencies you are looking for, while also applying D&I considerations and recruitment best practice.

Good Hiring practices and decisions can impact the organisation’s performance and bottom line. Attracting and selecting the right job candidates is essential to business success. Partners and senior executives need to understand how to apply effective, reliable, and valid attraction, interviewing and selection techniques to ensure talent attraction plan and good recruitment decisions are made.
