Workhere launches candidate video dossiers

Workhere launches candidate video dossiers

Using the most modern recruitment technology available, Workhere candidates can now create a personal video dossier, which combined with their CV, LinkedIn profile and availability provides them with a powerful tool to apply for jobs in New Zealand whilst overseas.

An impressive video dossier can grab the attention of potential employers from across the miles. It’s a fun, relaxed way for candidates to tell their story and highlight their experience in a personalised, dynamic way. It’s the ideal way for off-shore talent to introduce themselves to employers and let their personality shine through.

Creating a video dossier is really quick and easy. Candidates simply register with Workhere, complete the details in `My Dossier’ and record a video introduction, at a time that suits them.

Workhere candidates can use their video dossiers to support job applications by providing the dossier URL and password to employers of their choice. Candidates have full control over who sees their dossier and can update their preferences in their dashboard at any time.

Workhere Talent Advocates can promote candidate dossiers (with prior permission) to potential employers in New Zealand and support them with their job applications.

Early indication shows that New Zealand companies are really excited about this new initiative and are keen to see more job applications from candidates in Workhere dossiers format.

What is Workhere?

Workhere is an online platform that attracts highly skilled professionals from around the globe and connects them to New Zealand –based companies with jobs in demand. It’s a growing community of people that are genuinely interested in working in New Zealand, so it’s the first place for businesses to go to attract off-shore talent.

Workhere has partnered with KEA and NZ Immigration and uses the best talent attraction strategies, media advice and social recruitment available in New Zealand to deliver candidates that won’t be found using job boards or recruitment agencies.
