Managers 'should conduct interviews'
Line managers should be more involved in the interview process, it has been suggested.

In news which is likely to affect jobseekers, research from SHL has revealed that half of line managers are not involved in interviewing new candidates, Online Recruitment reports.

And only 30 per cent of line managers have had training on the issue, SHL stated.

According to Claire Little, vice president of training at SHL, companies hoping to recruit the best candidates should consider addressing these problems.

"Being well prepared for an interview raises the interviewer's confidence and is more likely to result in a successful recruitment process," she told the website.

Ms Little added that it is "crucial" for line managers to become more involved in the interview process.

Recently, the Training and Development Agency for Schools told jobseekers hoping to work with vulnerable sections of society that Criminal Records Bureau checks are par for the course in the application process.
