Our Expert Recruitment Training Plan


We know that one size doesn’t fit all so we’re committed to understanding you, your team, your unique business and your training goals. Our personalised approach ensures our sessions meet the individual needs of the people attending, and we work with you to ensure that any training your people participate in creates an experience that leads to the meaningful, lasting change that they need.  


The Elevate leadership team have 30+ years experience across sales, recruitment and mentoring. Our courses are jam-packed with wisdom and insights gained from real-world expertise; while theory supports the learning on offer, sessions are authentic, practical and filled with stories that illuminate both mistakes made (and how to avoid them) as well as proof that implementing these new capabilities will gain results. 


We’ll work with you to decide the best format to obtain maximum results for your team. We’re able to lead one or two-day in-person sessions, 90-minute virtual trainings, one-offs, fortnightly facilitations; you name it, we’re open to it! We understand that different groups have preferred methods, so we’re flexible to work in the way that suits you best. 


Any training is only as effective as the effort that goes into reflection and implementation. In fact, 70-80% of what is learned is forgotten within 48 hours if proper memory retention measures aren’t in place. For this reason, we help your teams create individual plans to adjust out of old habits and into ah-ha moments, can offer one-to-one coaching based on development goals, and can host group coaching sessions to delve into experiences and challenges of implementing these new ideas, with the support and guidance of a skilled facilitator.


We accommodate all industries for our recruitment training and adapt to suit the experience levels of the people in the room. Whether you have a group of entry-level Recruiters, a handful of highly experienced Seniors, or a combination of multiple skill levels, our training caters to all; everyone will leave taking away actionable insights for their role moving forward. We foster engagement across different learning styles, provide a highly interactive training experience where everyone is encouraged to get involved and keep the sessions upbeat and practical to retain high levels of engagement. 


We know that people learn best when they’re having fun, feel like they’re safe to share, are able to give things a go without fear of embarrassment, where it’s ok to get things wrong, and where all ideas are valid. We make sure to build positive relationships with all attendees so that they feel heard, feel that their unique challenges are understood, and that the person facilitating the session cares about their growth. This inspires attendees to be open to participating actively, to try new ways without feeling threatened, and to support their fellow colleagues in the room.
