Sound familiar? When starting a career or making a career change, getting your foot in the door can be a challenge. If you got in – it can also be a daunting task to get up to speed with what may be expected of you, especially if there’s a lack of training and support.
Introducing Paxus Training Academy
This year we launched the Paxus Training Academy. A first for Paxus, this training program is designed to help individuals with no experience in recruitment break into the industry and start their new career.
Whether the individual has a background in customer service, is straight out of university, or anything in between - we’ve established a structured three-month training program to teach our Talent Scouts the world of recruitment and the skills required to succeed in it.
What do they learn and what’s the goal?
Our training program leads our Talent Scouts through the journey of developing their passion for candidates and sourcing management. We teach them what to look for when sourcing the perfect candidate, the recruitment lingo, and the processes we follow for quality and compliance.
Ultimately, we turn them into successful and confident junior recruiters.
