Webinars

COREcruitment has historically held numerous events throughout the years with hundreds of people attending and having a great time. In 2020 things changed, and we had think of a way to reach the people who follow the industry closely and want to stay in the loop! We had to start thinking outside the box and have held a number of very popular webinars.

Webinars are events held 100% online from the safety and comfort of your own home and are FREE to attend!

We have hosted numerous webinars with industry leading professionals from around the globe including, the UK, USA, the Netherlands and the UAE, giving you a rare insight into the current topics and trends of the time with the chance during the Q&A for you to ask questions.
