What do I need to know about interview techniques? 

The interview process plays an important role for both you and the candidate. For you, the desired outcome is to understand if the candidate is right for the role, your organisation and if they have the expertise to contribute to your goals.  

For the candidate, allocated time to get a feel for your organisation and the surroundings will be desired. This also gives you the opportunity to showcase your organisations assets and put your best foot forward. 

In one interview you will need to cover years of service to understand their skills and experience. Having a set structure ready will allow your organisation to use the time allocated efficiently and reach your interview objectives.  

We can help offer you interview techniques from our expert advice, based on 50 years as a specialist recruitment business. In our Talent Guide, we detail key steps to implement when conducting interviews. Our guide also touches on how to use the STAR method and competency-based questions.
