Video interviewing

Making your life easier with video interviewing

We know how busy life can be. It’s not always easy or practical to find the time to attend an interview, particularly if it’s miles away from where you live. As part of our continuing commitment to making your working relationship with us as straightforward as possible, we’ve invested in HireVue, a tool which allows us to interview candidates via video.

Video interviews are gaining in popularity; an increasing number of companies are using them at some stage of the hiring process and early indicators tell us that our candidates really like them. It’s easy to see why:

  • Interviewing with us via video means you don’t need to travel to our offices which saves you time and money
  • You can record your responses literally any time you choose. Either complete the on-demand video interview over the course of a day or two, or sit down and take 20-30 minutes to complete it in one go
  • You have two opportunities to answer each question so if you’re not happy with your first attempt, you can have another go
  • The faster and more thorough screening process means we can place you in a vacancy much faster

Although the age of Skype and YouTube means many of our candidates feel perfectly comfortable in front of a camera, we understand that others may feel apprehensive. That’s why we’ve put together some information on how HireVue works, some tips for success, and answered some FAQs.
