Coaching the recruitment managers of the future

Coaching the recruitment managers of the future

I’m delighted this week to be partnering with a national training provider to launch a new, higher-level management qualification for the recruitment sector.

Solvo Vir, based near Manchester, has a successful track record of delivering employee training programmes within organisations, upskilling their new and existing staff. Working closely with the team of trainers at Solvo vir, I will be leading workshops in Manchester and London. The icing on the cake is that businesses will be able to access funding to pay for all or part of the training.

The new ILM-accredited management training will be looking at management theory, skills and processes through the lens of a manager in the recruitment industry, with industry-relevant examples, tasks and scenarios. We believe this is a first for the industry and in such a competitive sector, for this to be very well-subscribed.

Whilst any good management coach will have deep understanding of management theories and can bring to bear examples from their own management experience, few would understand, for example, the complexities of corporate resourcing and constructing a high return client! Working closely with Solvo Vir’s own management trainers and assessors, I will be bringing real life examples of management in the recruitment industry into the training sessions.

How can business get funding for this training?

The management training course for recruiters is being offered under the banner of apprenticeship training, effectively integrating study with ‘on the job’ learning. The government approved funding for recruitment industry qualifications in December 2017, meaning that organisations which are now subject to the Apprenticeship Levy can use those funds to pay for the training. Smaller businesses can access substantial government funding to cover the majority of the cost.

If you would like to know more or are interested feel free to contact myself Ian Knowlson on 07552 555858 or Dominic Abubakar at Solvo Vir on 0330 200539140

The ILM Level 5 Management Qualification for Recruiters will be running in London and Manchester starting April 2018.
