For many of our vacancies, we request our candidates to submit a pre-recorded short video to add to their portfolio alongside their CV. It may sound a little daunting at first but there are endless positives to adding this layer to your application.

❓Why do we use video in our interview process?

πŸ’₯ It streamlines the recruitment process.
πŸ’₯ Using video gives candidates the opportunity to express themselves more positively than their CV does, increasing their chances of progressing in the hiring process.
πŸ’₯ Employers don’t need to take large amounts of time out of their diaries` to conduct initial interviews. This can speed up how long it takes candidates to hear feedback and progress through the process.

πŸ† What benefits are there for the candidate?

πŸ’₯ It gives you an opportunity to show off your personality and be creative where your CV cannot.
πŸ’₯ It saves you time and travel costs.
πŸ’₯ Proves your understanding of technology.
πŸ’₯ You can record the video and submit it at a time that works best for you so you don’t need to take extra time off work.
πŸ’₯ You can re-record the video as many times as you like until you are happy.

πŸ€” How does it work?

πŸ’‘ Once you have been registered by one of our consultants, you will be sent a link to record your video.
πŸ’‘ You use the link to open a portal where you can record the video as many times as you like before submitting it.
πŸ’‘ Spend 60-90 seconds introducing yourself and the experience you have that lends itself to the role you’re applying to.
πŸ’‘ Once submitted, your potential employer will be able to view your video and cv before making a decision to continue with your application.

✨ Remember, our consultants are on hand to answer any questions you have and can provide moral support and words of wisdom if you need it! ✨
