Robertson Group has been focusing heavily on encouraging people into construction. As part of this we have run numerous employability skills sessions.
We found that presenting on how to create the perfect CV and prepare for an interview was useful but ultimately did not leave a lasting impression. We therefore created The Ideal Candidate workbook to compliment these sessions.
The workbook covers a variety of aspects from how to format a CV to helping participants identify their strengths and transferrable skills through several mini-activities. This is then reinforced by the ‘Recruiter Exercise’ in which the pupils can work independently or in groups to complete.
The workbook has been used with secondary schools, employability groups, Department of Work and Pensions and more recently at HMP (Her Majesty’s Prison Service).
