As part of the application process for our current vacancies, we ask applicants to complete an online video interview. This will be conducted via HireVue, a leading platform used by global brands such as Vodafone, Nike and Random House. The interview is on-demand, meaning you can complete it at a time to suit you, in the comfort of your own home.
Video interviews are an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your enthusiasm, charisma and verbal skills, all of which are essential to working at Hobson Prior. It also gives us the information we need to assess your suitability for the job, and enables us to process your application quickly and efficiently.

Once you begin your interview, the HireVue platform will give you step-by-step instructions, which you should read carefully. There will also be the opportunity to do a practice questions to help you become familiar with the technology.
