Recruit London fast forward candidates into work!

28th March 2017 / Posted by CRP Team

Last month Recruit London hosted an intensive employment–focused workshop with the aim of helping our candidates into employment. The whole day event was packed with fun and energetic activities and great training sessions to motivate, inspire and prepare our candidates for work in customer services.

Registration began at 9:00am. Twenty candidates were given packs which included feedback cards, helpful tips and advice on interviews and assessment centres as well as challenging game of people bingo!

In the morning the group attended Recruit London led sessions such as: ‘Style Briefing’, ‘Group CV Challenge’ and an ‘Effective Personal Marketing’ workshop. After eating lunch together candidates each had panel interviews to practice their technique and put into practice what they had learnt in the morning sessions. Crucially, after this, each candidate received individual feedback regarding their performance on the day and actions for their next steps. Throughout the day the Recruit London team were speaking to candidates about live vacancies to support them to move quickly into work.

We were fortunate to be joined for the day by the Royal Scottish Regiment who assisted with the group sessions and provided invaluable feedback for candidates, offering constructive comments, encouragement and motivation as well as photo opportunities!

Feedback from the day was incredibly positive with candidates requesting more events like this and telling us that they had learnt a lot and felt closer to finding work. One candidate described the day as a ‘great experience’.  We whole-heartedly agree and we are looking forward to running the next one to help another batch of candidates into work!
