I make candidates pay an interview deposit to ensure attendance
‘Recruitment Blog of the Year 2018’ Tutti Recruitti reconvened with UK Forbes 30 Under 30 Banking Tycoon James Singlet;
“It is unfortunate that candidates do not understand the financial implications of ‘non-attendance’.
Our ‘Interview Deposit Policy’ has counteracted this incoherence.
The deposit is reflective of salary (5% gross) and must be paid in full prior to confirmation.
On completion of the final interview the deposit is returned in full if the candidate attended all interviews in a timely manner.
In the recently published White Paper by personal friend and current Minister of State for Employment William Ainsworth, the 'Interview Deposit Policy' was celebrated as ‘innovative’ and the regaled as the ‘perfect counter measure to today’s lazy candidate.’"
