Self-select interview scheduling

Hiring the right candidate for a position is a stressful, high-stakes process, for applicants, interviewers and employers. Many great candidates fall at the first hurdle when trying to schedule interviews.

The Hireserve ATS ‘Self-select Interview’ tool enables candidates to select their own interview slots via their online candidate portal. Slash administrative time per application by automating your interview schedule and Focus on hiring the right person for your organisation, not juggling conflicting diaries.

Crucially, this reduction in administration frees up your HR and recruitment team’s time to focus on higher value work, opposed to chasing candidates, leaving voicemails, juggling interview panel diaries and more. Interviewers will thank you for creating a manageable interview schedule, not cramming appointments in where necessary.

'We saved over £20,000/annum due to reduced interview administration'

StepChange Debt Charity is a national charity with 1,800+ employees and has been using Hireserve ATS for several years. In a recent case study, we learnt how they used the Hireserve interview schedule tool and to streamline their interview process.

The most significant success can be seen in the charity’s interview processes. Previously Carol and her colleague had to phone each candidate in order to schedule interview slots.

“I can pinpoint one particular day where I received and made 137 calls!” – Carol remembers.

Using the Hireserve applicant tracking system ‘Interview Scheduler’, StepChange Debt Charity has significantly reduced interview administration by implementing scheduling software. Carol continued:

“We use the ‘Self-select Interview’ tool, which allows candidates to pick their own interview slots through their candidate portal. Encouraging candidates to pick a time that suits them has helped with no-show rates, and has also really decreased our administration, as we no longer have to go back and forth with candidates over email and the phone.”

Carol estimates that using Interview Scheduler has saved the charity 30 minutes per application, translating as approximately £20,000/annum in cost savings.
