How managers can maximise interviews and secure top talent


Once your chosen recruitment agency has taken care of the initial important steps in the hiring process by gathering the best possible candidates for your company, it is now time for you, as a manager, to make the most of every interview you conduct. Here are the top five tips Hexwired Recruitment recommends to help you maximise the effectiveness of your interviews in order to secure top talent:


1.Role and responsibilities are clearly defined

Ahead of the interview, it is important to clarify the role and responsibilities of the position you are hiring for. You can then ask more targeted questions during the interview based on the specific skills and qualifications you are seeking in a candidate.


2.Prepare a list of relevant questions

In addition to the standard questions you may ask during an interview, consider preparing a list of more targeted questions that will help you assess a candidate’s fit for the role. For example, when hiring for a tech role, you might ask about their experience working with specific technical languages, technologies, industries or in similar roles.


3.Provide context for the role

Provide the candidate with an understanding of the context in which the role will be performed. As an example, you might describe the team they will work with, the types of projects they will work on, and any challenges they might encounter. By doing so, the candidate will be able to better showcase their skills and qualifications and gain a better understanding of what to expect in the role.


4.Make the interview a two-way conversation

It is important to conduct your interview as a conversation, not as a one-sided interrogation. Make it a point to encourage the candidate to ask questions about the role, the team, and the company, and be open and honest in your responses. As a result, you will be able to better understand the candidate’s motivations and interests, as well as their view of the company’s culture and values.


5.Take notes

Make sure to take detailed notes during the interview. This will help you better compare candidates and make a more informed decision when it comes time to choose the best candidate for the role.


By following these tips, you can make the most of your interviews and secure the best talent for your team. Remember that although the hiring manager carries out the interview, the recruitment agency you are working with, such as Hexwired Recruitment, will also support you in the interview process by providing tips and resources where required.
