Recruitment Training Courses - Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions:


The recruitment training courses you provide, at what level of recruitment experience are they aimed at?

Because the majority of our courses are held in-house, at your place of work, the content of each course can be tailored to suit consultants of any number of years’ experience. I have trained many consultants with absolutely no experience and also coach many recruitment consultants that have been in the industry for over a decade.


What style of training would we expect from Peter Martin and Glimmer Management Consultants?

What you will not see if me reading from a text book each course has been written to engage all of the delegates but most of all give them hands on recruitment techniques that really work. My job is to help you make more billings and with each and every session I will give you the tools to do exactly that!


Word on the street is that you say you can increase my recruitment consultants billings by 25% - How is this possible or are you just full of shit? (real question from a real client)

Fair enough question too… and NO; this is not a marketing gimmick, I will show you from session number one, how to use different tools and techniques to increase your billings by a minimum of 25%. You are the one who then has to put those tools and use that knowledge and apply to your business, because as we all know, running a recruitment desk is like running your own business.


You say the most effective training you provide are 60-90 minutes sessions on a regular basis, why do you think this works the best, why not just provide a full days training?

We do provide full day and even two day training sessions but I truly believe that learning a little and learning often is the best and most effective way to grow your knowledge base and truly get the most out of each coaching session.


Do you have any references from people that have attended your recruitment training sessions in the past?  

Yes, absolutely! The majority of my business is referral, as it should be, and just below you will find a few written references and there are a heap more on my LinkedIn profile, feel free to give me a call though and I can put you in touch with some existing or past clients that would be happy to talk to you.

1st Regan Kirk,
hired Peter as a Business Consultant in 2011



“Peter has been training, coaching, and mentoring the Bond Recruitment team for almost a year.

Peter’s role in coaching and mentoring our recruitment team at Bond Recruitment has been indispensable. He is an outstanding trainer and motivator!

There have been cases where I, or a colleague, have walked into a one on one consultation with Peter, feeling unsure or perplexed in regards to how to move forward on something; or just to work out a solution. Peter has an uncanny ability to make one reflect on the situation from another perspective, helping one to reorientate one’s own perception to another level. His ability to think out the box and to motivate others to do the same, is a special skill.

Peter engages and communicates with his audience at a hands on level, bringing a genuine and personalised touch to his coaching style.

What impresses me most about Peter is his focus on training recruiters according to a very ethical and values orientated philosophy. His main objective is to help one to be and want to be the best at what you do; and in doing so, highlighting a core pool of values:
Establishing long term relationship, creating open and honest communication channels, how one can be/or make a true point of difference, the importance of integrity (the list goes on); and finally encouraging and acknowledging that there is no one way to be a good Recruitment Consultant – that it is important to adapt recruitment to one’s own style and personality

Without hesitation, I can recommend Peter as a highly proactive and passionate trainer/ business coach, who will make ‘That Point Of Difference’ in your team or business.” May 18, 2011


1st Roxanne Flanagan, Geology Specialist Recruiter (Mining and Resources Team), Bond Recruitment Pty Ltd.
was with another company when working with Peter at Glimmer Management Consultants



“Pete was hired by BR to coach the staff and train on the recruitment process and in the soft skills arena. I have found him to be very helpful in this, Pete has taught me to think outside the square and structure myself to achieve excellent results. I have now been working with pete for almost 6 months and my results have improved, Pete has implemented the 4/13/65 diary system into our company and i personally think it is the best tools ever invented. I am now more organised, and i am no longer complaining about having no time to do things. I think that every company should have these quarter by quarter diaries, they definalty keep me autonomous and working hard on a day to day basis. I also feel more accountable for my work using this book. Thank you again Pete, I honestly dont know where i would be without my 4/13/65 - probably still unorganised and whinging about being time poor .” January 19, 2011

Pete helped me to set myself realistic goals and the support to achieve them and I can thank his coaching for where I am today. He will put a smile on your dial, give him a call.” January 19, 2011
