Video interviewing

Interview from home

Instead of traveling to a face-to-face interview, why not do an online interview at home? Your time is precious, and this could be an easier way of doing things.

It could also speed up your application process, enabling you to start working and earning sooner.

What are my options?

1. HireVue

HireVue is a digital platform that allows applicants to answer a set of pre-recorded questions as part of their interview process. These questions are the same as those you’d expect in a real-time interview. They cover your nursing values and how you deal with situations that arise in clinical practice.

What you need

All you need is an internet connection and a device that can record video, like a smartphone, tablet, or web cam. The interview will take around 20-30 minutes.

This won’t be a live conversation with one of us – you record your answers to questions and then send them to us. You can record your responses any time you like, over the course of a day or two, or all in one go.

One great thing about this approach is that if you’re not happy with your answer, you can have another go. This makes the process a whole lot easier and much less nerve-wracking.

2. WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a simple, free to use instant-messaging platform, with an integrated video chat feature. Many of us use WhatsApp on a day-to-day basis when chatting with friends and family. If you’re happy to do a real-time video interview, simply select this interview option in the Guild’s Recruitment Portal, along with a suitable date and time to contact you.

One of our nurse interviewers will contact you by video call, on WhatsApp, using your provided mobile number – it’s that simple.

What our nurses think of video interviews:

“ I didn’t have to travel to do the interview. It made it convenient and easy. ”

“ My interview didn’t have to be face to face, therefore I did not have to travel or take time out of my current working life. I was able to be flexible and do this in my own time. ”

Get started quickly

The quicker you complete your interview, the sooner you can start working. In some cases, we’ve been able to get candidates straight out to work after their online interview (assuming our other requirements have been completed).

Prefer a face-to-face interview?

If you don’t feel confident in front of the camera, you can do a face-to-face interview instead.
