The Brief | Old Mutual Wealth
ted Learning have been working with Old Mutual Wealth at their offices in Southampton, the Isle of Man and Central London on several programmes.
We were initially engaged to deliver an assessment centre session to the Customer Service Centre and an interview skills session. This evolved into several sessions for different parts of the business and training over 100 Managers on how to recruit for fixed term contracts as opposed to purely permanent staff.
We have now rolled out this training to Managers on the Isle of Man on how to conduct Assessment Centres and working with Quilter Cheviot in Central London on Presentation Skills. We are currently working with the business to develop a programme for Investment Managers.
For all of the courses we have delivered, we have spent time in the business conducting our DNA days, observing how the business currently recruited and delivered an assessment centre experience and talked to candidates on their experience. From this, we were able to design a programme that met the business and candidate needs.
We created the fictitious business of ted energy and delivered the assessment centre and interview training experience back to the staff members attending the training so they could be on the receiving end of what their own candidates experienced.
This enabled the learners to identify what worked well, what needed to be changed and to agree what the experience should look like moving forward to attract the best talent into their business.
