​​​COVID-19 Remote Interviewing

We are currently conducting interviews remotely and using a platforms such as WebEx and Microsoft​ Teams to facilitate recruitment. Your Talent & Resourcing Consultant will be able to assist in providing guidance if necessary but please see the relevant information on the intranet in the first instance. We have also created a remote interviewing help sheet, to prepare for your interview which can be found here.​



Here is some hints and tips when using WebEx and troubleshoot any issues. 

  • If you do not have strong Wi-Fi - lower video quality or turn off your web camera, and better yet, share your content before the call. 
  • ​Close unnecessary applications - audio and video competes for the same resources and under pressure will impact the quality of your collaboration experience. WebEx Meetings has health indicators at the top right-hand corner (on latest versions of WebEx).
  • If you have no Wi-Fi - use the direct dial numbers for your meeting, which you can find in the invite. 
  • While working from home, there may be a lot of background noise. Consider muting yourself if you are not speaking. 
  • WebEx can run outside of your Virtual Desktop Service (VDS)​ - turning off VDS for WebEx can lead to a better experience for audio, video and sharing.
