Why our online training works

  • Live webinars

    Attend live webinars where you can ask Angela & the Recruiting Gym coaches questions and get deeper insights on the topics most important to you.

  • Online support from a coach

    This is more than self-service training. Angela & the Recruiting Gym coaches include 1-1 coaching sessions as part of the course, to help answer your questions and tackle your challenges, putting theory into action.

  • Learning from others

    The Recruiting Gym is a community and in this series of webinars, everyone has been in the same situation, so you gain support from others as well.

  • Documents and downloads

    The online training will be supported by webinars and include additional videos, quizzes, presentations and documents to be downloaded and utilised in the business.
