Partner with Hays to streamline your direct recruitment processes.

As experts in recruitment, Hays understand that screening applicants to find the best talent and the right cultural fit is an essential but time-consuming process.

We deliver reliable, tailored screening services enabling you to make candidate selection decisions based on independent and consistent assessment methods.

Outsourcing this stage of your recruitment process ensures that you use your valuable time to meet only the most suitable candidates.

As part of our shortlisting service, we can deliver:

CV Review

  • Save time by outsourcing the initial review of applicant resumes
  • Once your direct application process has closed, Hays will assess resumes based on your position requirements. You will receive a report summary which highlights applicants that match your criteria.

Key Selection Criteria Review

  • Ensure independent assessment of key selection criteria
  • We will assess applicant responses to key selection criteria. Responses are reviewed, scored and a report is delivered to you outlining each applicant’s scores.

Phone Screening

  • Evaluate your applicants' responses to behavioural questions
  • Your applicants are phone interviewed and asked behavioural questions. These questions are developed with you ensuring they are aligned with position requirements. You receive a summary report detailing applicant scores and responses to questions.

Face-to-face interviewing

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of applicants’ experience, cultural fit and communication skills
  • Where a more thorough understanding of applicants’ experience is required, we will develop interview questions with you and conduct face-to-face behavioural interviews. You will receive a summary report of individual performance.
