How to find a good Training Specialist

  • Post category:News

In spite of the very difficult period at global level, many companies in various sectors have resumed their activities at a great pace and, as a result, it often happens that they need to insert a new Training Specialist.

Whatever the size of the company, he or she is a key resource because he or she manages the training budget, analyses internal needs and draws up medium- to long-term training plans in agreement with the HR Department. They are also responsible for the selection and coordination of trainers and external training partners.

First of all: what does a Training Specialist do?

The main tasks are: analysis of training needs and definition of objectives, in close collaboration with the HR Department and in line with the business strategy; development of training and employee development plans; management of the training budget; selection and coordination of trainers and external partners/consultants for the implementation of specialised courses; drafting of evaluation reports, to verify the actual effectiveness of the courses provided.

So: how do you look for a good Training Specialist?

The only solution is direct, pure headhunting: you call the target company under false pretences, you pass on the figure in question and only when we have the contact you are interested in on the phone do we reveal the real reason for our call.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that headhunting is a practice used only to look for executives or managers! For example, at Ricercamy we have gained solid experience in the hunting of profiles that work in production and on machinery: from the melting furnace operator to the assembly line operator up to figures of greater responsibility.

Of course, these are very delicate operations, especially because you have to “take” from an office a man who is working there! Therefore, these calls must be handled with competence, discretion and professionalism, so it is necessary to rely on those who, like Ricercamy, do it for a living! Relying on us you can have several advantages: maintaining anonymity with respect to the needs of your brand, having information retrieved here and now and not from old databases that can not be updated at the time and above all use your time for other emergencies as Head Hunting is an extremely time consuming activity.

From a commercial point of view, the rules of engagement between Ricercamy and its Clients have also changed! No more paying exaggerated fees, lump sums or “tokens” for each placement made in the company! With our SMART rate you only pay for the hours that are actually used for your specific selection. So not only will you have a fixed and certain initial cost, but compared to a traditional approach, your fees will average between 5 and 8% of your RAL!
