Creating Frameworks (click to Expand/Collapse)

JRK consultants are experts at helping organisations create a Competency Framework that meets the needs of their business. We have a method that starts with helping you clarify your core values. Then we record the key Transferable competencies. The competencies that apply across all jobs. Lastly we can help you identify and describe the additional Job or Role based competencies that will be common to related jobs. We work with you, at your pace giving guidance to the business leaders as to the process.

What we are seeing is that Competency Frameworks are not just for the large multinationals but can help small businesses be more efficient and effective.

There are four stages to our approach:

Competency based Recruitment and Selection training (click to Expand/Collapse)

We have developed a fantastically popular and successful two day workshop on Competency based Recruitment and Selection training. The two day workshop is designed to allow recruiters to work with Competencies and design their own assessment criteria, and set questions. We use students as real 'interviewees' to make the simulation as real as possible. We video the interviews and are able to use the feedback to discuss good practice and any legal issues that might arise.

As well as our great Two day Competency based Recruitment and Selection workshop we are now offering a Three day version to allow more practice at defining competencies and giving more actual interview practice.

This programme has in the past only been available to corporate clients but we are now offering it as an open course.

We run with up to 12 delegates and two Tutors, to maximise your learning opportunities. For the two day course the delegate fee is 600+ VAT For the three day course the delegate fee is 750
