Recruiter Coaching

Having managed and worked with Recruiters at all levels over the past ten years, we have seen at first hand what makes the ‘Great Recruiters Great’. The learning’s to be taken from observing so many different Recruiters and their approach over the years has been never ending!

We ourselves have a strong track record of Recruitment achievement, achieving consistent billings over the course of ten years, comprising of over 500 placements along the way. So we know a thing or two about building great pipelines, securing the best talent, client delivery and earning commission!

At ‘Progress Coaching’ we are delighted to bring this Coaching offering to the market. Through our ‘Recruitment Coaching’ offering we will look to transfer our knowledge to teams of Recruiters or individual Recruiters to help achieve the best possible pipeline and ultimately commission pay-cheques.

This offering is available to Recruitment Organisations / Recruitment Consultants AND ‘Internal Talent Acquisition’ professionals. Securing the best talent and the most consistent delivery when it comes to a Recruiters performance will form the basis of all our Coaching sessions.
