1. Why the role video is important

We include a role video for a few key reasons:

  1. Firstly, having a role video attracts more candidates who are of a higher quality!

  2. The role video helps candidates understand team fit - giving them a feel for what it would be like to work with you and your team. 

  3. This helps to humanise the role application experience. Candidates also complete a role video as part of their application, and together the videos create connection earlier.

2. How to record and upload your role video

  • Turn a light on behind your laptop (not behind you!) so it's not too dark

  • Raise your laptop so that it's about equal to your hairline and angle the screen so that you are face on but can still see the office in the background

  • Film the video!

  • Log into the Hatch site on your computer and click into your role

  • Tab across to 'Role Video'

  • Click the Upload button and select your video!

3. Tips

  1. Don't worry about it being perfect, it should feel informal and authentic, and give students a good idea of what you are like to work with

  2. Have some office action going on in the background (making sure it's not too loud - your voice should be clear to hear)

  3. The video should last for around 1 minute

  4. Make sure the video is recording landscape

  5. Try to look at the lens, rather than yourself ;) 

4. Examples role videos

Here are a few examples of role videos that did a great job of attracting the role they needed using what worked for their specific organisation.
