Double your career options with this dual human resources and recruitment course. Talent acquisition is arguably one of the most important functions of human resources. But recruitment is also a standalone profession. So, whether you’re interested in human resources, recruitment, or both, this course is ideal for you.
Certificate of Human Resource Management & Certificate of Recruitment is a dual professional development course that will develop your knowledge and skills in human resources and recruitment.
In this human resource management and recruitment course, you will explore all aspects of recruitment, performance management, workforce planning and forecasting, remuneration, induction and strategic human resource planning. You will also learn about candidate selection, interview tactics, prospecting and retention strategies.
On completion of this course, you will have developed vital human resource management and recruitment skills - important transferrable skills in both professions.
Why choose a dual program?
With a dual certificate program you can:
save money – our dual programs are cheaper than studying two certificates separately, making studying more affordable;
combine two areas of interest giving you greater variety in your studies;
graduate with a competitive advantage, with a broader range of skills and knowledge; and
seek a career in either of your study areas, or in a field that combines both, giving you greater flexibility.
