Running a Successful Temp Desk
Manage your time & maximise your profits while satisfying both your temps and your clients.
“A good mixture of listen and learn, and interaction. The time went very quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have recommended RMI to my Directors. I am now looking forward to working through the training videos.”
“This is the second RMI course that I have been on and they have both been excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending RMI and would love to attend more courses in the future.”
The role of the temp consultant is quite different to that of the permanent recruiter. While both temp & perm recruiters ultimately are sourcing and matching people to jobs and vice versa, for the temp consultant:
- Timescales to deliver are shorter – how can you fill bookings within a matter of minutes rather than days?
- Liability for candidate screening and compliance lies with the recruiter – how do you manage the admin burden?
- Legislative requirements around temp recruitment are more onerous – how can you turn that to your advantage?
- Fee calculations can be more complex – how can you calculate and quote them with confidence?
- Temp recruitment doesn’t end once the candidate starts – how can you manage your talent pool efficiently?
- In a candidate-short market, how can you attract the best candidates to temp for you rather than your competitors?
At the end of the course, participants will:
- Know how to define their chosen market
- Access a wide range of candidate sources
- Implement an effective candidate registration process and lay the foundations for candidate management
