Redline Group, the Permanent & Contract high-technology and engineering recruitment specialist, today announced the opening of its new Recruitment Academy, the latest stage of the company’s strategy to continue their expansion of its existing 50+ team to 80+ by 2018.

Redline’s Talent Academy will be located at their new offices at The Village, Butterfield where this modern facility cements the company’s commitment to offering an opportunity for talented individuals looking for their first step into the Recruitment Industry.

The Talent Academy has been specifically designed to enhance the skills of Trainee Recruitment Consultants through a fun and inspiring way of learning the recruitment basics. The programme combines a mix of learning opportunities from our InspiRED classroom based training to online platforms as well as on the job training, allowing individuals to embrace different recruitment techniques.

Week by week, trainee consultants will be immersed in sessions covering a different topic, allowing individuals to really perfect that area. Modules will include: the recruitment process, searching methodologies and techniques, candidate contact and qualification, the importance of social media and marketing, amongst many more.

Throughout the programme trainees will also spend some time work alongside the management team sourcing and selecting industry qualified candidates for critical live roles, giving them on the job experiences and the opportunity to contribute in a successful client engagement. Once they graduate from the Academy, Trainee Consultants will join one of the specialist divisions where they will then become an Associate Consultant.
