The Futurepoint Professional Interface Programme
is an intensive personal one to one programme that prepares the professional candidate to become the candidate of first choice by the employer. 
It is researched and built upon proven techniques by  leading authorities in professional employee placement and our expert panel.   
In a progressively competitive environment, the capability for recruitment firms  to increase placement rates and reduce operating costs is imperative. 
The Professional Interface Programme is a key step towards building a sustainable future proof business model and is quickly being adopted throughout the recruitment industry. 
Lead by our specialised team of highly qualified experienced partners, we help you deliver increased revenue streams by waste elimination. Every non placement candidate is a strain on valuable resources and is a critical non value add cost. 
A lean operating model is critical for 21st century recruitment and we help you achieve that success through our Professional Interface Programme. The programme is completely discreet and confidential.  

We Provide:

* A phone/media based introduction session with candidate to discuss CV and personal social media impact, coupled with identification of programme needs under the suite of solutions available in the Professional Interface Programme.  

* We review the candidate CV  and advise of any changes to align with the interview process. 

* We agree with the client/candidate the suite of advisement solutions which will be conducted during the Professional Interface Programme.

* The Professional Interface Programme is conducted over the course of a full day with Futurepoint management consultants. We recommend that the training programme is held at least 10 days before interviews are conducted. Each candidate takes away an agreed action plan of identified improvement opportunities. We provide full mentoring to the candidate through the interview process and beyond on follow up actions.    

We look forward to hearing from you.

A sample suite of topics available for the programme are listed below. 
A typical interview asks 18 unknown questions from hundreds available.
 We prepare you for all of them.

Strategic Management

Strategic Management

We are very proud to deliver the only short course on strategic management available in Ireland. This course has been designed to be delivered in house and is specifically tailored for the Irish multi national IDA high value manufacturing and services sector. The programme is delivered over 20 hours as an integrated format over modules decided by the client. Strategy only works when everyone is on the same page and for this reason we offer this programme for each management forum to take advantage of this unique opportunity. It is fundamental knowledge that companies that have a strong foundation and understanding of strategy and how it shapes future sustainable success are the business units that achieve prolonged success within the greater company structure. Simply put, the business unit that talks the language of the CEO attracts the greatest interest and capital input. Success is always built on strategy. See a sample of our strategic training work.
