Streamline Your Recruitment Process With Video and Vouch

January is one of the busiest months for recruitment. According to LinkedIn, twice as many Australians changed jobs in January, compared to other months.

HR teams and recruiters have their work cut out. As they review CVs and take interviews, they need to simultaneously understand a potential candidate's career history, get to know their personality and decide whether they’re a good culture fit for the team. Add the pressure of taking reliable notes and syncing multiple schedules, and you’re left with a pretty challenging set up.

HR teams and recruiters have been using Vouch to improve this process and streamline recruitment in two ways:

  1. Candidate screening

At the application stage, they’ll share a Vouch request with their preliminary questions. This can be as simple as adding a Vouch campaign link to a job listing. Video responses bring color to written applications and CVs. This provides context, helping the hiring team to get a feel for the candidate and move those best-suited to the job onto the next stage.

  1. Async video interviewing

If you can’t meet face-to-face, video interviews are the next best thing. And if you can’t sync up on the same time zone, asynchronous video interviews are a brilliant alternative. With Vouch, you can add questions, have your candidate record when it suits them, and review when it suits you. Then share the videos, or the automatically-generated transcriptions, with your team.

How Vouch helps you hire smarter

Here are some of our HR and recruitment community’s favorite Vouch features: 

Save time, move faster 

Interviews can go off track. Vouch's Q&A feature delivers just the information you need to know so you can make quick, informed decisions. Set only the questions you want answered and if you really want to keep it snappy, you can set a time limit for their answer.

If you’re curious about the kinds of questions your peers have been asking candidates in Vouch, check out our recruitment question template. It contains tried and tested questions from our community, ready for you to use. 

Thanks to its async nature, Vouch can also work for you 24/7. Collect video responses from talent around the world, without having to manage clashing calendars. This helps you move faster and bag the best talent, before they can be snapped up elsewhere. 

An on brand experience candidates love

Vouch helps candidates deliver focused video responses to your questions. With recording tips, speaker notes and the opportunity to re-do takes, it's easy for candidates to show their strengths.

You can build even more trust in the recording experience by customizing it with your brand.

Personalize the look and feel, add your colors and logo, even change the domain the recorder is on. Customization is available on the Pro plan and you can sign up for a 14 day free trial here.


Easy collaboration tools

Playlists are perfect for compiling all of your candidate’s answers into one megamix, so they’re ready to be shared with the team. Alternatively, create a shortlist of your top candidates and watch them answer the same questions side-by-side.

Our Spaces feature helps you get organized with a dedicated space for every client, team or region you work across. Each has access to the same set of tools, but has full control of their own content, contacts and questions. Get in touch with us if you’d like a demo of this much-loved feature within our Teams plan

Integrations that bring the hiring team together

Vouch seamlessly connects with the hiring tools you use every day. So you can capture video with Vouch, access it immediately and collaborate with your team in your existing workflows.

If your team communicates on Slack, use our Slack integration to get your team across new Vouch responses instantly. As soon as a video is submitted, it can surface in your hiring channel.

Alternatively, if you use Lever as your hiring stack, our integration allows you to use the Vouch recorder as part of your existing recruitment workflow. This guide explains how to connect the platforms, but here are a couple of the benefits you can expect:

1. Automated interview invitations 

Build your recruitment campaign within Vouch, then within the integration, define what the candidate should be sent. Lever will trigger a video request once the candidate has hit a particular stage in the flow. The integration can even then move the candidate to a new stage once they have responded.

2. Searchable transcriptions, instantly imported

Vouch brings all transcription information into Lever, so you can use the native search in the platform to remind yourself who said what. Video responses and transcription are organized into the candidate’s profile, along with data on when the request was sent and viewed.

With our Zapier and Integrately integrations, you can also bring Vouch into a number of other hiring tools like Bamboo, Recruitee and more. Find out more information about that here.
