A recent attendee at an interview skills workshop commented;

In my 24 years in retail that is the best most relevant workshop I have attended. The knowledge of the trainer not only our sector and recruitment but also for our business was phenomenal. Bringing the best talent in to our business is critical to our success; I now have the tools to do that.

The McCarthy philosophy is all about service and long term relationships. Their approach is to ask what you need to achieve your resourcing goals and then they produce a service that enables you to achieve them by working with you in partnership. I worked with them to help develop my in house resourcing team, firstly for Argos and then for Homebase. They wrote and delivered bespoke training courses for my teams on subjects such as candidate management, headhunting, defining our process, influencing, legality and ethics. The courses were fun, incredibly informative and developed the team's recruitment skills to ensure we fill as many positions ourselves as possible. They wants to help get the best talent in to our business and understands budget constraints; they listen and deliver without their own agenda. Without question I would recommend McCarthy as a first class provider of Recruitment Training as well as delivering standard recruitment services.

We asked McCarthy to design and carry out training for our key interviewing managers. After a briefing meeting Mccarthy produced an excellent day’s workshop that they then delivered to 60 Store Managers across the estate. The training was relevant, specific and really added value to our business. Mccarthy are lively and passionate in their delivery and due to their extensive knowledge the team felt that the trainers were one of them and not an external supplier. McCarthy has the ability to really understand what your issues are and find practical solutions that make a tangible difference. We are now considering rolling out the training to all Store Managers.
