Employer Interview Guide

Interview guidelines for hiring managers

This interview guide is designed to ensure hiring managers engage the best people for their team, while representing their organisation professionally and effectively. It covers interview techniques and structure, asking questions and employment law - what you can and can’t ask in an interview.

In our Employer Interview Guide, we provide you with expert advice and tips to help you design and manage the interview process. Whether you’re an experienced hiring manager or recruiting for the first time, you will find useful tips to help you achieve the best outcomes.
