Video Recruiting Innovation Set to Change the Way We Hire in the UK
The way we recruit in the UK could be set to change, as an innovative new recruitment platform launches this week.Devised by a team of Canadian human resource, management and technology experts, VidCruiter uses online video and audio technology.
From this month, VidCruiter will be exclusively available to the UK market, through business software consultants Project Support Ltd. “VidCruiter has become extremely popular in the US and Canada since its launch,” says Adrian Day, of Project Support Ltd. “We are the first organisation to launch the software in the UK, and with the UK job market remaining so challenging, it looks like this solution could really help to streamline the processes of checking, interviewing, and eventually hiring job applicants.”
“It just makes sense,” continues Adrian, “Using a series of specific parameters to explore CVs; users can go from 100 applications to selecting their top 10 in seconds. You can then set up a series of questions and simultaneously interview applicants using audio or video, allowing you to ‘meet’ the applicant far sooner in the interview process. This unique function also allows a team of people to view the candidates’ videos in their own time from any geographic location, in any time zone and feedback their comments or rating. You can simply fast forward through any applicants you feel are unsuitable or go back and revisit those who are suitable, in more detail.”
With recruiters often seeing many hundreds of applications for each job, VidCruiter aims to make the process of finding the perfect candidate more accessible and cost-effective for all parties, leaving the face-to-face element for the final interview process.
“Keyword searches have been used for years to streamline CV selections,”
“As more companies recruit globally, and with input from multiple locations, we believe that the use of this type of technology will shape the future of the recruitment industry.”
