Lighthouse Recruiters knows that human interaction is vital when it comes to recruitment. So rather than trying to automate this aspect like many other recruitment companies, we are focused on enhancing it. We’ve invested in state-of-the-art video engagement technology that allows us to present candidates to our clients in a far more efficient light.

How it works

We conduct five-minute face-to-face video interviews using questions specified by the client. We then send these recordings, that can be watched from any device, at any time, directly to the hiring manager for review. This allows the manager to make a more informed decision on exactly who to bring in for face-to-face interviews.

By removing the needless first stage interview and barriers to location we can cut the recruitment to hire journey by almost half.

We understand one of the biggest frustrations as a hiring manager is time spent conducting interviews with candidates who are the completely wrong fit. We also know that a third of businesses make an immediate decision on whether to hire in 90 seconds.

We have a solution.

We use cutting-edge video technology to cut out unnecessary, time-consuming first stage interviews. Our suite of tools allows us to offer better matches, in less time. No location barriers mean we can access a wider pool of talent, and ensure the best candidates are the ones we present to you.

To work in such a competitive industry means we must provide unrivaled service, and to do this, we need to be at the forefront of technology. That’s why we use the latest video-engagement software.

Our dynamic software allows us to eliminate unnecessary first stage interviews and cut the time to hire by almost half. We can introduce our candidates to clients virtually by conducting short face-to-face screening interviews using questions specified by the client. The recordings are then sent directly to the hiring manager. This essentially saves the manager time and allows them to make a more informed decision as to who
to bring in for a face-to-face interview.


We provide a branded online tool to allow clients to view candidate profiles, track their recruitment process and collaborate on positions.

Time spent organizing and tracking recruitment is one of the largest costs involved in the recruitment process. By using an ATS/PM tool we can simplify the process and reduce the operational costs involved in recruitment.


We virtually meet our candidates to ensure we base our shortlist on more than just a resume. We provide a short video interview for these candidates with
questions provided by the client.

Using video interviews we can cut the time to hire by up to 50% and decrease number of interviews by around 60%.


Having a bespoke video interview means the client can set the questions and get the most relevant insight into the candidates technical, cultural and team fit.

Bespoke video interviews have on average reduced the interview to placement ratio by 66%, decreasing the number of interviews a client undertakes to find the right hire.


We use video to maximize our access to passive and hard to reach candidates -in a competitive market this ensures we give our clients the greatest advantage in
candidate attraction.
