Interview Hosting

Interviews are stressful, even if you’re the one asking the questions. Interviewers can feel the pressure of the day knowing that hiring the right staff is vital to every organisation.

Our interview hosting service has been developed with this in mind. We handle everything except assessing the candidates, allowing you to focus on hiring the perfect new member of staff!

For just £20 per day (excluding VAT) our Interview Hosting Service ensures:

  • candidates have a warm welcome and a comfortable place to wait for their interview
  • complimentary tea and coffee for interviewers and candidates all day
  • you are informed of the arrival time of candidates (early or late!)
  • interview tasks, exercises or organisational materials are supplied to and collected from candidates
  • candidates can use desk space (if available) for exercises to be completed before their interview
  • you only need your staff working on the recruitment process involved on the day
  • there are no distractions from the interview in progress
  • we project a professional, friendly image on behalf of your organisation

    What you say

    Living Streets Scotland has used The Melting Pot interview hosting service on a few occasions now. We’ve found the service to be very useful, allowing us to focus on the interview, rather than the admin. Having someone check candidates in and ensure they are settled works well for the candidate also. The Melting Pot staff are professional and the service is faultless.

    What you say

    Just wanted to say thank you so much for hosting us at The Melting Pot, it was inspiring to see a coworking space with such a community spirit. Two members of the group were so inspired they are hoping to work with SEA to develop a hub space in Kenya for social entrepreneurs!
